Working on my second one of these. First one did come out a little tighter than expected but it's still super cute in lavender coloured yarn. I may have been using the wrong weight yarn. But I did find the written pattern does not translate to how many stitches I end up with as I am crocheting - I just completed row 5 and I have 85 stitches around, don't know why. The way I am doing it is, for example, 'Row 3: Ch3, 2dc in next stitch, *1dc 2dc* repeat part in * each stitch around'. Because the ch3 counts as a dc, if you don't count it as part of the repeating pattern, you end up with an extra stitch. Still don't know why I'm always ending up with extra stitches. Also, I started this with a magic circle with 16dc into it. :)

This was wonderful and easy to follow. My beret turned out perfect! I am going to make a few more. The video made all the difference in the world to me.

Just finished my first beannie and this pattern came out great. Thank you!

I loved this project and am ready to start my second hat The wonderful lady that made the video did a wonderful job and her work is impeccable Two little comments below are humbly made and without malice I found that making a little change m as the first hat I made came out very nice but flat like a pancake and I loved the fact that the lady's came out wavy I found that instead going thru the top chain as one normally does I went thru the double crochets just like the lady did but probably forgot to mention Another thing is I never count the chains as a double crochet In other words I always make the chains only to go up to my next row and continue with the instructions to me is makes my work easier look neater Example Rnd Ch count as DC Dc inRead More th Ch from the Hook st Ch made Sl St to join Total Stitches What I do is make my chains followed by double crochets instead of DC You see I did not count the chains as a double crochet Just my humble opinion I hope this helps the ladies that did not understand Sincerely CocoAngel

I made this hat in no time yesterday! The video was quick and to the point, and showed details of the stitches when needed. I love this hat/beret! I made it in a teal/turquoise with a contrasting "brim" for the last 5 rows. It worked out great. My 11-yr-old daughter loved it! Thanks for the great pattern!

Very good video....will do this one for sure....am a knitter (beginning), but have crocheted in the past. I had forgotten how to increase and decrease. Nice job on explaining the pattern. Wish others were this easy to follow...

Well done ! All "easy" patterns should be so well explained, with the pattern written for learning and reference. Also the coloring worked great to see what you were doing. Not to use the dark colors that are hard to see even in person some times. Thanks very much.

Thanks for the video. It was well-done, and a big help.

This was a super easy hat to make and the video was great to clear up unclear instructions.
