I worked this beret up as a special request for one of my granddaughters. I was very happy to oblige since her previous request had been for a Matt Smith/Dr. Who fez! Despite its decidedly sophisticated look, this beret really is easy to work up. After you form the initial crown (a flat circle), the most complicated stitch from then on is the Front Post Double Crochet.

It looks like the yarn mentioned above in the Phannie Beret, Berroco Pure Merino DK as well as all the Pure Merino styles of yarn are discontinued according to the Berroco website. I'd like to try this pattern. Is there another yarn you would recommend?

May be reading this wrong. Round 10 says to repeat round 7, ending with 32 FPDC with 3 DC between, but round 7 has 32 FPDC with 2 DC between. Just a typo or should I now be doing the below (dc in the next two dc instead of just the next one?): Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), * FPDC around post of next st, dc in same dc (inc made), dc in next two dc, rep from * around, end FPDC around post of last dc, dc in same dc, join with a sl st in top of beg ch-3 32 FPDC's with 2 dc's between them.

I love this pattern! I have made it twice and each hat is uniquely different because of my yarn choices. The crochet around the post really gives the hat some interest. I chose to do one of the hats in a solid color with two rows of contrasting color before I started the decreasing rows. Thank you for posting the pattern for free!

I'm having trouble reading patterns- i'm on Rnd 2 and i'm not sure what it means when it says "dc in same st, 2 dc's in each dc around," ... i have a list of the terms so i understand those but does this mean i double crochet into the first st right after a chain of 3 and then go right back into the same st and dc again and repeat until i reach the end... - can you please explain?

I love to crochet, but I am dislecsic and have a hard time reading the patterns, but I can watch videos and pick up on them really good. Is there a site that shows how to make different things. I want to learn to make mittens and hats most of all. Thank you and have a wonderful day! line5

I just joined so am way late in responding. Even though I'm not dyslexic I have a hard time with patterns, too. YouTube has a great deal of videos. Use terms like "crochet tutorial" and then follow that with what you want to crochet (hat, gloves, scarf, etc . . . ). You Might try "translating" patterns into something easier for you to read. Like, for a single crochet, give it a symbol. For a double crochet, a different symbol. Then write or type the instructions out with the symbols. My brother is dyslexic and when I helped him with his homework sometimes that was the key - we had to put it in a "language" he could read.

This pattern works up very nicely. The finished beret was beautiful. The pattern was good, but I might rate it Easy+ or Med Easy because you really have to pay attention in the beginning. Once the pattern is established, you're home free.
