Berets come and go on the style scene, but they'll always be a great option, and fun to crochet! Here are 10 free beret crochet patterns to inspire you!
A Traditional Style
Berets are traditionally soft, flat caps with a wide round top and a tight brim... a lot like slouch hats, but the shape comes from the diameter of the crown instead of the length worked evenly.
And beret crochet patterns seem particularly well suited to Spring - a little jaunty, a little lighthearted, still cozy but not so warm as a winter beanie. So as the sun starts shining and temps start rising, here are some freebies I think you'll love!
