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 10 free beret crochet patterns to inspire you!
