  1. Thanks I will try your crichet beret and let you know how it worked out. Sorry I live in South Africa and we don`t really know what worsted weight yarn is or a Gneedle but if I go according to the books I have it must either be a 4ply or double knit yarn we have here correct me if I`m wrong by sending me mail. My son found your site so I will in future return to see what you have to offer. Thanks Istella.

    This was a good pattern, I used it and made a cute pink fuzzy beret. Now im only 15, but I spotted some mistakes that were easilly fixed. Just some things in the sizing. And for anyone else, dc means treble, sc means double crochet and size G needle is really size 4.00 mm. Thanks. I was looking for a beret pattern everywhere and yours was the only that looks right! Thaks SOOOOOOOO much!

    I’m not sure if these are mistakes or just the difference between a American and British patern. YO once and pull through two one time is called a sc In the US. If I recall correctly, it’s a dc elsewhere.

    Hi KatKnit!
    I used your pattern to make berets for my family. I used smaller gauge thread and hook for my daughters (and got VERY tired), and am using bigger sizes now for my husband. it’s so easy, I’ve practically memorized your instructions and friends are “seriously kidding” me about making berets for them! Thanks so much! ^_^
