Tivoli Beret Pattern

Posted a couple of year back on the Lion Brand Yarn website, this one’s a keeper:  a hat that will keep it’s shape even after many washings. The one in the photo was made with worsted weight wool and a size G-6 hook.
You can find the pattern here.

Simple Crochet Beret

Nothing could be simpler than this single crochet beret, this model done in Lion Brand Cotton-Ease on size G and H  hooks. Cotton has enough body to prevent the hat from sagging. – I hate wearing droopy berets that look too big, though slouchy is is style now.

Lace Beret

This beauty is labelled a “Basque” hat on the website. I’ve only recently begun wearing berets – they don’t crush my hair but do keep me warm, and my husband, not a fan of hats in general, thinks I look nice in them. But I don’t like them too floppy. Once I made one that reminded me of Fat Albert. Not a pretty sight.
