A New Pattern

I'm happy to present the Holly Berry Granny Stitch Beret, now available in the December 2023 issue of I Like Crochet.

This festive project stitches up quickly in light worsted or worsted weight yarn with a size H (5mm) hook. Thoughtful construction details make for a flattering (not floppy!) beret; the simple single crochet band features invisible decreases and Corded Hdc Edging for a polished finish.

The bright red magazine sample was worked in Cascade 220 Superwash, a soft and warm washable wool.

While developing this pattern in response to the magazine's call for submissions, I made a sample for myself, using some lovely squishy Malabrigo Rios:

I look forward to wearing both my berets this fall!

  1. This would be perfect for red hatter days, thank you for the pattern Sue. x

  2. She did it again! :-)

    I like red, especially in the cold saison when the days are rather grey. Makes a lovely contrast. I think there may be a beret in a box somewhere ...
    Have a nice weekend!
