US terms used

Stitches Used: Main body of the hat
Sl st = slip stitch
Ch = chain
Dc = double crochet
Bdc = back double crochet = see special stitch explanation

Stitches used: Hat edge
Fphdc = front post half double crochet
Bphdc = back post double crochet

Special stitch Explanation: when we look at the loops of the dc that we work into, you will see that there are 2 strands of yarn on the top of the dc and one strand of yarn on the bottom, coming from the front of the dc, we place our hook in the space between these and make a dc. The special stitch is made by placing your hook behind the dc, going into the space over and under the single strand pulling our working yarn through to make a dc. This technique does become as fast and efficient as a commonly placed dc.




Beret begins at the crown and is worked down to the brim
Chain 4, sl st to first ch to form a ring. Or use a magic ring
Please note! The beginning ch 2 of every rnd is not counted as a st

repeat row 9, 12 more times, or continue for length desired

Hat edge: Tips for hat edge: if you find your hat edge is not getting smaller as you use the sc stitch, you can make decreases any where in the round, I suggest that you wait until you have at least 5 hat edge rows made and try it on before you make any decreases.
Row 1, ch 1 work 1 sc in each st to end, to join sl st into the 1st sc of the round
Row 2, ch 1, work 1 bpsc in each st to end, to join, sl st into the 1st sc of the round.
Repeat rows 1 and 2, 5 more times (10 rows plus  the 1st 2 rows 12 rows) finish off and sew in ends or follow on for a very simple decorative hat edge
To make a simple decorative hat edge
Row 1, ch 1, work 1 hdc in 1 st, sl st into next st, *1 hdc in next st, sl st in next st* repeat from *to* to end, join, finish off.

I am looking At the mothers beret. When do you start the second color of yarn and on what rows do you use the three colors? Is the 100 grams for all three colors or the whole thing ?

Cathy Wood said...

the 100 gm's is for the whole thing, there are 2 rows of each color, so every second row you use an alternative color, cheers Cat.
