Introduction: Crochet Lemon Beret

About: I love to sew, and other crafty thing.

This pattern is worked in rounds, and does not count any of the chain stitches as a total stitch for that round. The end of each round is joined with a slip stitch. They are only there to get the correct height for the next round. This pattern assumes you know how to increase and decrease, double crochet, front and back post crochet and chain stich with a hand needle.

KEY:

Ch=Chain

Sl st = Slip Stitch

DC = Double Crochet

INC = Increase (2 stitches in the same stitch)

DEC = Decrease (2 stitches in the same stitch)

FpDC = Front Post Double Crochet

BpDC = Back post Double Crochet

ST(s) = Stitches

REP = Repeat

<#> = Total number of stitches per round

Supplies

5.0/5.5 mm crochet hook

Medium size 4 acrylic yarn in yellow and white

scissors

yarn needle

Step 1: Step One

ROW 1: First with the white yarn create a magic circle and work 12 dc into the ring and join with a slip stitch. <12>

Fasten off and began the next row with the yellow yarn

*Color change-yellow*

ROW 2: CH 2 DC in each st around, sl st to join <24>

ROW 3: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, INC in the 2nd st and rep. <36>

ROW 4: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, INC in the 3rd st and rep. <48>

ROW 5: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, INC in the 4th st and rep. <60>

ROW 6: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, INC in the 5th st and rep. <72>

ROW 7: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, INC in the 6th st and rep. <84>

ROW 8: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, INC in the 7th st and rep. Cut yarn and fasten off. <96>

Step 2: Step Two

*Color change- White*

ROW 9: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, INC in the 8th st and rep. Cut yarn and fasten off<108>

Mark the circle with scrap yarn in 8 sections by folding the circle in half then into quarters and so on. Or you can measure them out whatever works best for you.

Thread your yarn needle with about 14 inches of white yarn. Starting at the bottom edge of the white row tie a knot and bring the needle up from behind and into the space in the bottom of the last row. It is important that you don't split the yarn when doing this. You want to make sure you're going through holes that are already in the crochet. Bring the yarn to the front of the hat.

Insert the needle from the white row into the bottom of the next row. Don’t pull the needle all the way through yet, loop the rest of the yarn around the front of the needle and then pull through the crochet. It should form a small loop or chain. Then insert the needle into the same place you just pulled up from and pull up into the nest row and repeat.

This is called a chain stitch, if that was a little too confusing HERE is a tutorial. Once you get to the middle you can either stop and tie it off there or continue like I did in the pictures by just weaving through the center and continuing to the other side. Do this for each section.

Step 3: Step Three

*Color change-yellow*

ROW 10: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, INC in the 9th st and rep. <120>

ROW 11: CH 2, 1 DC in each st around. <120>

ROW 12: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, DEC in the 9th st and rep. <108>

ROW 13: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, DEC in the 8th st and rep. <96>

ROW 14: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, DEC in the 7th st and rep. <84>

ROW 15: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, DEC in the 6th st and rep. <72>

ROW 16: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, DEC in the 5th st and rep. <60>

ROW 17: CH 2, 1 DC in each st, DEC in the 4th st and rep. <48>

*Ribbing*

ROW 18: CH 2, 1 DC in each st around. <48>

ROW 19-22: CH 2, FpDC in the next st, BpDC in the next st, repeat.

The first FpDC I loop both the first real DC and the chain stitch for a cleaner look. Fasten off and weave in any loose yarn.

Also thanks to my roommate for modeling my hat for me!

I tried the pattern and it was great! It turned out a bit big for a child but the pattern is very well written!
