Chunky Beret and Three Season's Beret Pattern


free crochet patterns for two berets
I like this style beret that I have been making, so I thought I would write up the pattern to share, it's one of many style's I've managed to come up with, but time does not prevail to write them all to share. Slowly does it and I may have more patterns to post.
I have written this beret pattern with 2 set's of instruction's.
One being for a thicker yarn, which is nice and warm for winter wear and the other is with a thinner yarn that can be worn for three season's.

Do not be afraid to adjust this pattern as AU Yarn is quite different yarn to the US and UK, AU can be much thinner which can require you to increase more.

Below is the three season's beret

Here is some feed back on the three seasons beret.
Thanks Chickie Magoo.

I absolutely love it and for me, 13 sts for the last inc was perfect, that made a couple extra rows for the decrease too and it all worked out great. I love how it fits and how it sits on my head...it's fairly heavy because I used Cleckheaton Country 8ply pure wool but it feels yummy and springy and I'm well pleased. Thanks for a great pattern!

This is Chickie's Beret.

I must say she does lovely crochet, thanks for letting me use your picture's Chickie

Its really gorgeous ! I love that you have a pattern for thick and thin yarns . . . good thinking !

Is it possible to put a visor into one of those?

Thanks stramenda, it is possible to place a visor on them, unfortunatley I have not developed one that I am happy with as yet. Once I do, I'll put the pattern up.

I love this pattern, its exactly what I was looking for. I'm working on my own at this very moment, though I'm going to try adding some cat ears, just for a cute look.

Thank you for these wonderful patterns!! Can the 3 seasons be lenghtened?

Hello anonymous, if you have the know how, you will be able to lengthen the beret, I think you can just keep the pattern going a bit longer than what is stated, good luck and thank you for stopping by.
