Basic Skills Necessary:

  • single crochet
  • double crochet
  • increase in pattern
  • shells

Pattern Description:

This is a slouchy, beret style hat, written for both fingering weight & worsted weight yarn, & available in both a child's & women's size.

Only one skein of Knit Picks Palette yarn will make either the child or adult sized hat, & two skeins of Wool of the Andes will be enough to make either version.

Pattern calls for a size F (3.5 mm) crochet hook. I crochet loosely; most crocheters will need to go up a hook size to get gauge

Gauge: 1 shell = 2" in either weight of yarn. Fingering weight version will come out very lacy; worsted weight version will come out more "solid".

Measurements: child (16-17") & adult ladies (19") measured at brim. Hat is very slouchy & is rated an advanced beginner pattern.

Hat is made from the top down, joining after each round & not turning. Hat will look flat, like a doily, until almost the end.

Modeled shots show hat made with fingering weight Knit Picks Palette yarn; hats shown plain were made with worsted weight Wool of the Andes, also by Knit Picks
