A funky retro beret in less than a day's work

Recommended Posts

Love it! Do you have a pattern? my kids, including my sons, are wearing those lots lately.

 

Oh, and the blacksheep tape at your blog... I soooooooo want one. I didn't know they made black ones. Too cute! :sheepjump

Cute! I'm not much into hats, but I like that style...it's "in" right now. (Not like I wear stuff because it's "in", but it never hurts. :) )

Great hat Emy! I like the neutral color too. It'll go with anything.:)

Ooo, another question... did you use anything in the brim to make it stiffer? The crocheted ones my kids bought (yes, they bought crocheted hats while on a ski trip - can you believe it?)... the ones they bought have plastic reinforcement in the brims.

Thanks everyone! :)

 

The pattern's from Family Circle Easy Crochet Fall/Winter 2005. It called for 2 strands held together but I preferred using a single strand and just simply went down on my hook size.

It works well enough -- no stiffener needed. I just like it the way it is.

I love that style -- I used to wear them back when Carnaby Street styles were big -- your work is beautiful and the hat looks great. :-)

I love it! I went to your blog but saw the modeled pic. I also saw all your other stuff, and it's amazing! I love your cropped tops and that royal sweater (the black and grey one) is just so impressive. Wow.:clap

Thanks everyone, I like it too though my friend commented that it's a tad too small on me :(

 

Being on a roll, I am now on a new crochet project!

Thanks Yarnster. To be honest, I don't quite wear hats too.

My SIL would probably look fab in this one but she hasn't seen it yet -- she's been pestering me to *gift* her the white knitted beret I made.
