Aretha Franklin-Inspired Crochet Beret Patterns

By: Christine Weiher, Editor, AllFreeCrochet

As we all know the wonderfully talented Aretha Franklin has the beautiful voice of an angel. She is a singer and musician who started her career at her father's church as a child. When she signed on with Atlantic Records she gained great success with her songs. The way she can belt out "Respect" is captivating and just makes you want to sing along with her; due to her success she earned the title "The Queen of Soul". Aretha has won 18 Grammy Awards and is one of the best-selling female artists of all time, which is pretty spectacular.

Aretha came out with a memoir in which we learned she likes to crochet. According to the Buffalo News Aretha said “To this day I enjoy crocheting various items for family and friends,” she wrote in her memoir. “I like maneuvering subtle pumpkin and pineapple stitches. As I crochet, I often think of those days in Buffalo and Mr. and Mrs. Pitman” (the neighbor who taught her to crochet). Aretha said she likes to make berets, which is right up our alley. Crochet berets are beautiful hats that can show off different stitches. The chic look never goes out of style and we'd like to share what we think Aretha would love to crochet.

Our family has been cast as extras in a few movies, and being part of the magic is not as glamorous as it seems. You spend a lot of time on the sidelines just waiting to be called on set. So Im not surprised that Ms. Franklin likes to fill her time working crochet. Working a challenging pattern keeps the mind sharp. Crochet is the perfect portable craft, too.
