The call for submissions asked for projects with a flash of color on a neutral field. So, this is my take on that idea. This project begins with a two-color spiral in the top center of the beret. It increases as it spirals to make the top of the hat. Once you get the top finished you decrease again and then make the band.
The instructions are given to make this hat in three different sizes to fit head circumferences from about 18-22 inches (or about 45.5 to 56 cm). The yarn used for the original was Premier Yarns Deborah Norville Serenity Sock (affiliate link), which is a blend of merino, bamboo, and nylon. You’ll need one skein each of two colors to complete the hat, along with a size F/5 (3.75 mm) crochet hook, 3 locking stitch markers, and a yarn needle.
This is a pretty quick and easy pattern. The most challenging part will be starting the spiral correctly. I have a great tutorial video to help with this! Click here for the tutorial. If you find that you need additional help with this, please get in touch with me so I can help you!
