Ferrina, crochet beret pattern

Every day is ferrina day

There are days that, sure, a beanie will do nicely. And then there are days when you just need a little more. The days when you’ve got some sass in your eyes and extra pep to your step. 

For the days when you want a little more, create the Ferrina beret with this free crochet pattern! The Ferrina pattern is very quick to stitch, giving you an impossibly perfect every day beret.

signature series

The Ferrina crochet beret pattern is part of my Revel Signature Series. This is an ever growing library of knit and crochet patterns that I have created to be a part of my world. 
There are many reasons I design. Sometimes my kiddos ask for specific items, or sometimes I’m inspired by mass-market items and think “Oooo, what would that look like in yarn!?”, and sometimes I see a stitch and just know that it needs to be a beautiful lace shawl …. I’m pretty random with what makes me pick up my hook and create. 
But the Signature Series is all me. It might be from any of the mentioned inspiration, but the yarn and stitch chosen and overall look is decided by whether or not it belongs in my closet or in my home. 
If you enjoy the style of the Ferrina crochet beret, click over to the Signature page to see the other patterns in this series.

ferrina beret yarn

Love this hat so much. In fact, I have made 6 (yes, really!) versions of this beret. 

The grey, fuzzy yarn is, unfortunately, no longer available. However, If you are wanting to create a Ferrina with the same, fuzzy-halo, I recommend Upcycle Suri Alpaca byWeCrochet. Each ball is 109 yd [100 m], so you will need 2.

The pink version is made using Lion Brand’s Touch of Alpaca. It isn’t quite as fuzzy as the grey, but it has more of a halo than “standard”. The skeins are 207 yds [189 m], making this option a 1 skein project! 🥰

Skein of pink, Touch of Alpaca yarn made by Lion Brand Yarn Co.

The red beret (1st version) is made using Cascade Yarn’s 220 Superwash Merion. It isn’t quite as fuzzy as the grey, but it has more of a halo than “standard”. The skeins are 207 yds [189 m], making this option a 1 skein project! 🥰
