Pattern Details

The Berkley Beret is a delightful mix of texture and warmth. It is a great pattern for spicing up those solid colors. Directions are given for five sizes: baby, toddler, child, teen, and adult. Directions also include an explanation on how to add an optional yarn bow/tie accent. This hat is made using a wool blend super bulky weight yarn, making it a quick and satisfying project. For sizing reference, the child size is being modeled in pictures 1 and 3 on a 6 year old. The toddler size is being modeled in picture 2 on a petite 4.5 year old. Please NOTE: The pattern for the cowl seen in pictures 2 and 3 is NOT included with this. Skill Level: Beginner/Intermediate You should be familiar with basic knitting terms, know how to purl and knit, how to knit in the round, how to use double pointed needles, how to make increases such as kfb, and how to make K2Tog and P2Tog decreases. Materials: ~Set of U.S. 11 (8.00 mm) Double Pointed Knitting needles ~U.S. 15 (10.00 mm) 16” Circular Knitting needle ~Set of U.S. 15 (10.00 mm) Double Pointed Knitting needles ~1 locking stitch marker ~ Approximately 100 yards of super bulky weight yarn (or weight category 6) for the adult size (this is a generous estimate); less required for the smaller sizes. Example above was made using Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick. It is highly recommend that you use a super bulky wool blend yarn. 100% acrylic yarns will not have the same stretch and ease, and using such yarn will affect the final fit, so please use a yarn blend with good stretch. ~(OPTIONAL) A small amount of coordinating worsted weight yarn for tie accent. ~(OPTIONAL) A 3/4” button to accent the center of the bow if making the tie accent. ~Tapestry or Wool Needle

Crafting for me began when I was around 9 and received my first sewing box kit. I remember hand stitching little items for my barbie dolls. Nothing fancy and I definitely did not know anything about patterns. That was the extent of my sewing until about 3 and a half years ago when I got my first sewing machine and taught myself to sew. I have been hooked since. However, my first true crafting love was crocheting. My mom taught me to crochet when I was young, sometime when I was around 10 to 12. When I was 16 or 17, my parents bought me a how-to-knit book for my birthday and I was knitting in no time. Hats, scarves, wash clothes, etc. They also bought me a crocheting book at the same time, which took my crocheting skills to a much more sophisticated level. I still have some of the baby layette sets I crocheted just for fun. When I started college, my knitting and crochet needles were sadly neglected but I picked them up again a couple years ago and have learned so much more than I knew then. But that is the beauty of crafting: you are always learning, always perfecting your craft!
