Robyn's Beret Crochet Hat Pattern



Crochet Hat Pattern For Robyn's Beret



The matching polo style neck warmer free crochet pattern is now available.



Introduction: I have called this free crochet hat pattern, Robyn's Beret as it was made for my sister-in-law Robyn. She gave me 2 bags of yarn that she decided she would not use and asked if I could just make her something to keep her neck warm. I made the neck warmer first and I just knew that I had to make a matching hat for it. I was very pleased with the way the hat turned out, I knew I would have to write a pattern for it. I also received a very strong and positive response to the hat on my Face Book page.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my Face Book page likes, so thank you so very much!
Small Pink Crochet Hat Pattern

I made Robyn's hat with a specialty yarn that is no longer available, so I had to make and write the hat pattern for a readily available yarn choice.
The gold color is French Oak #7.7, the pink color is called Sweet Ribbon #7.14

Also if you take a close look at the pink hat above you will be able to see the subtle stitch pattern that I used in both versions.
I have even drawn the stitch diagram for those of you who prefer the stitch diagram, the pattern is in multiples of  9 st's.

I wanted to show you yet another way the crochet hat pattern will look with a combination of a plain and variegated yarn. *I have used the plain yarn for the crown, the simple pattern row and the sc row of the hat edge*.
*The variegated yarn is used in the body of the hat on the hdc rows and in the bpsc rows of the hat edge*.
You may find this information useful as the hat pattern does not refer to color changes.

The crochet hat pattern is available in SIZES, small, medium and large.
This was also the very first time I was able to use an American brand yarn that I purchased off the shelf here in Australia!

Beautiful set! I am a new follower and I am amazed at your talent. These are the first hat sets that I really like. I am going to try this one. What is the name of the yarn that you made Robyn's set out of? I know it is no longer made, but I am going to try and find it. Thank you, again!

Cathy Wood said...

Thank you, the name of the yarn is Filati, di Florence Gala, purchased from Art & Craft RIOT! it was 60 cents per 50 gm ball. I will put that in the pattern notes too.

I don't understand this "Row C, being a Row 1, Hat Edge, you will now work 1 sc in each st and dec 1 st in very 6th st until there are 4 st's left, work 1 sc in each of the next 4 st's, join (70 st's) go to row 2 of the hat edge", part of the pattern. I think something's wrong here, and I'm afraid to stay from the pattern.

each st is a sc, crochet st's 6 and 7 together, a decrease is made, do this until there are 4 st's left and do 4 sc, hope this helps you.
