You’ll need around 20gr of a 8 ply thread (crochet size 4.5mm) for the headband, then, 10 gr of wool in three (or four, or five…) constrating colors for the flowers. Feel free to use a thicker thread and crochet size – it will make bigger flowers.

Crocheted Spiral Beret

 

The Spiral Beret is great fun to make, moreover it’s quick and needs only about 60-70gr of wool. It’s the ideal pattern when you’re looking to use small quantities of wool left from your former projects.

We need about 20 gr of 4 colors. For that tutorial I used:

  • MultiColour (A)
  • Red (B)
  • Orange (C)
  • Yellow (D)
  • Hook: 4.5 mm

First, it’s important to know the only way for you to know when you are starting a new row, is to check where is your marker. A change of color DOES NOT denote the beginning of a new round, and also, the color DOES NOT change at the marker.

It just takes a little bit of concentration on the first rows, and then, you’re gone !

Nota Bene: for this tutorial, all the stitches have been worked on back loop.

With color A, chain 2.

Rd 1: work 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc in 2nd ch from hook. Drop A (draw up a long loop to avoid losing the stitch). With B, working in the same ch, draw a loop and work: *1sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc*. Drop B. Repeat from * to * with color C and D.

You have now a circle with 4 segments each in different colors, 3 stitches of each color, for a total of 12 stitches.

Rd 2: Continuing with D. Work 2 dc into each stitch of A. Drop D.
 Pick up the loop of A and work 2 dc into each stitch of B. Drop A.
 Pick up the loop of B, and work 2 dc into each stitch of C. Drop B.
Pick up C and work 2 dc into each stitch of D.You have now completed the second row.Place a long colored thread into your work, on the last stitch. This will be your marker for the beginning of rounds.
 Rd 3: Continuing with C, work into the remaining sts of D: * 1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st * (3 times), drop C
Pick up D, repeat from * to * on sts of A, drop D.
 Pick up A, repeat from * to * on sts of B, drop A.
   Pick up B, rep from * to * on first 6 sts of C, you have now completed 3 rounds, you are at marker, which means you are at the end of the round, not at the end at the color. You have a total of 36 dc (9 dc in each color)

Rd 4: Following the same pattern, keep on going working 2 dc in every 3rd st of each color segment. You end up with 12 dc in each color (total of 48 dc)

Rd 5: Increase every 4 dc. You end up with 15 dc in each color (total 60 dc)

Rd 6: Increase every 5 dc. You end up with 18 dc in each color (total 72 dc)

Rd 7: Increase every 6 dc. You end up with 21 dc in each color (total 84 dc)

Rd 8: Increase every 7 dc. You end up with 24 dc in each color (total 96 dc)

Rd 9, 10 and 11: Work 24 dc in each color (total 96 dc)

Rd 12: decrease every 6 dc by crocheting 2 dc together. You end up with 21 dc in each color (total 84 dc)

Rd 13: decrease every 5 dc. You end up with 18 dc in each color (total 72 dc)

Rd 14: decrease every 4 dc. You end up with 15 dc in each color (total 60 dc) Work the three last sts of each segment of color as follows: 1 dc, 1sc, 1 sl, end off.

Border:

Rd 1: Join with the color of your choice, ch 2 and work between 60 and 65 sc (depending on your head’s size). Join with a sl to top of beg ch 2.

Rd 2: ch 2,  work 1 hdc on each sc. Join with a sl to top of beg ch 2.

Rd 3 to 5: ch 2, work 1 sc on each sts. Join with a sl to top of beg ch 2. Cast off.

You’re done already ! Wasn’t it simple?

Now, feel free to play with colors and to add various embellishments to your beret, flowers, buterflies, beads, let your inspiration guide you !
