- Worsted weight yarn in your chosen color (approximately 150-200 yards)
- Crochet hook suitable for the yarn weight (usually around H/5mm or I/5.5mm)
- Yarn needle
- Stitch marker
- Optional: Decorative button, ribbon, or embellishment for added flair
Skill Level: Intermediate
Size: The pattern typically provides instructions for one size, but adjustments can be made for larger or smaller sizes by modifying the number of stitches in the initial rounds.
- Magic Ring: Start with a magic ring and crochet a certain number of chains into the ring to create the beginning circle.
- First Rounds: Work a set number of single crochet (sc) stitches into the magic ring to form the base of the beret. Increase the number of stitches gradually to achieve a flat circle.
- Body of the Beret: Continue crocheting in the round, gradually increasing the stitch count while maintaining the circular shape. This forms the slouchy part of the beret.
- Ribbing or Band: Transition to a ribbed stitch pattern to create the band that fits snugly around the head. This might involve alternating between front post and back post double crochet stitches to create the textured ribbing.
- Finishing: Fasten off the yarn and weave in any loose ends with the yarn needle. Optionally, sew on a decorative button or add a ribbon to the side of the beret for added charm.
