Savy Beret

Updated with suggestions, THANK YOU TESTERS!

After all the confusion with LollyPup’s foot pattern, I think I need some people to test this pattern for me before I publish it on Ravelry…

My niece’s best friend rescued a beret from her mom’s Goodwill bag, and both girls fell in love with it. No tag,  so we don’t know where it came from, but it seems simple enough and I decided to write my own pattern. It’s named after Savannah aka Savy.

Suggested yarns: Caron Simply Soft, Vanna’s Choice, other soft sport or worsted weight that will drape

Hook: G or H, whatever needed to obtain gauge

Gauge: approximately 2.5″ across after Row 3

Abbreviations:

  • ch- chain
  • ML- magic loop
  • st- stitch
  • sp- space
  • sk-skip
  • sc- single crochet
  • hdc- half-double crochet
  • dc- double crochet

Start with either a magic loop or ch 2, join with sl st

  1. ch 2 (counts as first dc), dc 7 times in ring, join with sl st – 8 dc
  2. ch 2, 2dc in each st around, join – 16 dc
  3. ch 2, 2dc in each st around, join – 32 dc
  4. ch 2, dc even – 32 dc
  5. ch 2, (hdc in next 2 sts, 2 hdc in next st) around – 42  hdc
  6. ch 2, (hdc in next 2 sts, 2 hdc in next st) around – 56 hdc
  7. Start mesh: (ch 5, sk 1 st, sc in next st) around  – 28 loops
  8. (ch5, sc to join to middle of next loop) around – 28 loops
  9. repeat row 8 for 6 more rows; join last ch5 to next loop of previous round with a hdc – 28 loops
  10. Start ribbing, working in a spiral without joining: hdc in first st, next to  joining hdc from last row. 2hdc in each ch-5 space around – 56 hdc
  11. (hdc around front post of next hdc, hdc around back post of next hdc) around – 56 hdc
  12. repeat row 10 until ribbing is 2″ wide, sc around next front post, sl st around next back post (sc and sl st taper the ribbing so it’s flush with the rest),  fasten off, weave in ends

The girls like to wear it low on the back of the head, they say this is “trendy” but what would I know, I’m just Auntie! 😉
