Crochet EASY Puff Beret Hat

2021-11-23

I love wearing hats, especially berets! The french beret is a good for fall and spring time and as well as it’s a beautiful accessory.

I made this beret as a perfect pair to my neckwarmer and I am happy to show you how to crochet this perfect beret that fits!

I love this wonderful yarn color and quality, it is not too thick, just the right thickness to show off some texture. The texture on this beret is created using half double crochets and puff stitches.

I used this amazing yarn for my new Cocoon Shrug Cardigan design, the square begins as a circle, so there is a beautiful mandala design and a gorgeous motif in the center of square.

Difficulty Level: Level 1 – Easy, for Beginners 

US crochet term:

SlSt – slip stitch
CH/s – chain/s
SC – single crochet
HDC - half double crochet
SK - skip

ST/s - stitch(es)
REP - repeat
YO – yarn over

Special stitches used:

FRONT POST DOUBLE CROCHET AND BACK POST DOUBLE CROCHET STITCHES
front post double crochet (fpdc) and back post double crochet (bpdc)
Front and back post crochet stitches are used to create wonderful texture in crochet. Instead of making your stitch through the loops at the top of the stitch, you make it around the stitch. Everything else stays the same. The most challenging things about crochet post stitches are knowing where and how to insert the hook. There are front post stitches and back post stitches.
For front post double crochet stitches (fpdc): yarn over, insert your hook from front to back then from back to front around post of stitch indicated, yarn over, pull through stitch, then finish your double crochet as normal, yarn over, pull through 2 lps, yarn over, pull through last 2 lps
For back post double crochet stitches (bpdc): yarn over, you insert your hook from back to front then from front to back around post stitch indicated, yarn over, pull through stitch, then finish your double crochet as normal, yarn over, pull through 2 lps, yarn over, pull through last 2 lps

PUFF STITCH

Crochet puff stitch is essentially the same as crochet bobble stitch. However, bobble stitch is worked using stitches that are double crochet or taller.

Puff stitch is worked only using half double crochet stitches. Because of the unique third loop in hdc, it must be worked slightly differently than a regular bobble. Here are the instructions for a 3 hdc puff stitch:

Yarn over and insert the hook into the stitch where you are creating your puff stitch. Yarn over again and draw through. There will be three loops on the hook.

Repeat two more times. Each time adds 2 more loops to the hook. There will be 7 loops on the hook for a 3 hdc puff stitch.

Yarn over and pull through all loops on the hook.

Chain one. This step is used to secure the top of the puff stitch closed.

 

HDC IN 3RD LOOP
HDC in 3rd loop = the 3rd loop is hidden under the back loop. 

This is my favorite crochet technique and I hope it will become one of yours soon too! 

Crocheting in the 3rd loop of a hdc stitch pushes the top of the stitch forward so that the front and back loops of your stitch, which normally sit at the top are now visible at the front of the stitch. It creates a horizontal ridge of “v” shapes. It’s a way of adding a knit-look texture to scarves, blankets and shawls.

Pattern Notes

 

1) These pattern below is for adult women size, this can be easily adapted to a smaller size or bigger size just by reducing or increasing the numbers of stitches and as well as less or more numbers of rows. Remember that when making bigger hat size, you will need more yarn.

 

Adult Women Size:

Head measurement: 21.5 inch / 56 cm

Hat crown size: 7.9 inch / 20 cm

Hat measurement (the widest part): 10.6 inch / 27 cm

Hat part is 3.2 inch / 8 cm long

Hat Border is 4 cm / 1.6 inch long

 

2) This Hat is crocheted in rounds from the top down using half double crochet stitches.

 

3) A Ch 2 at beg of the row doesn‘t count as stitch

 

4) Work in continuous rounds

 

I love that French Beret and many people do so, they are classic and so popular!
