crochet hat season?

I can’t stop making hats! This time its a pattern for a fun, beachy, lacey, stripey, festivaly, zig zaggy, crochet beret. Yep. All the things. And it uses under 200 yds of dk weight yarn, so this little topper is great for using up smaller, single skeins.

together is better

Nollis crochet beret pattern

fits most

The Nollis crochet beret pattern is written for just one size. The top down construction means you can easily adjust it to be smaller│larger. The one I made has enough extra length to allow it to fall to one side, beret style, although you could easily make it shorter and more beanie-like. 

beret photo shoot?

Will you do something for me? If you make this hat, I would awesome if you’d allow me to feature your work on a gallery page and show others how amazing you are. This would also allow me to be able to showcase how this hat looks in various yarns and on multiple people and their styles.  I, and your fellow crochet lovers, would be so so grateful to have additional samples to view! If this is something you would like to help with, you can find me on all the social places (links are on the upper right corner of this page). If you post pics on social and use #NollisBeret, I might reach out to you that way, too.

Making Nollis

It’s a journey! I’ve started writing a design diary. It is the chronicling of the day to day process and silliness of designing each piece.  

 │ JOURNAL │

about the yarn

King Cole continues to impress. 

Finesse Cotton Silk DK is a 77│23 cotton & silk blend. Which, is a fantastic fiber combo for a warm weather beret. Both fibers are cooling so you won’t have a problem with this hat during the heat of the day, but the cotton adds a little weight that allows the beret to have that iconic fold without being fussy.

Finesse is technically a 2ply, but each ply is made of another 2 ply, giving the yarn a great, sort of slubby texture, but without the slub clumps. Maybe that makes sense? It has a great texture without it being overpowering.

Finesse is a size 3│Light (DK) weight yarn. Again, ideal for hotter days & nights.

NOTES

GENERAL

  • Pattern is written in US terms with imperial and metric measurements.
  • Yarn amount given is for hat as shown│written. Yardage [m] will vary with any alterations of pattern.
  • Read through each line before beginning to avoid any confusion during stitching.
  • Refer to Special Stitches instruction {below}, and Tutorial(s) as needed.
  • The Special Stitches instructions‭ ‬are detailed, written directions on how to complete specialty stitches as worked within this pattern (Pattern pdf also provides illustrations when needed).

CONSTRUCTION

Hat is worked top down in joined rounds, with RS facing for every round, no turning, joining last st to first at the end of rounds. The brim is then stitched in a continuous round, spiraling from one round to next, not joining.

UNDERSTANDING THE PATTERN

  • Pattern is written for 1 size (Pattern pdf provides customization instruction). 
  • Number after period (.) at the end of rows is the stitch count; 8 sts. This means the row just completed should have 8 stitches.
  • If no stitch count is given at the end of row, stitch total did not change from previous listing.
  • While gauge is not crucial for this project, any deviation from gauge given will vary the size of hat created and the amount(s) of yarn used.
  • Gauge information is given in Details {above} as well as within the pattern; verify that project measurements match given measurements.
  • It is recommended to block completed hat to “open” lace stitches. 
  • PM as instructed as a visual reminder of first st of Rnd.
  • Joining sl st does not count as stitch.
  • When working into any V-st, work around the center chain│into the space created by ch, encasing the ch. 
  • When making ‘together’ sts (decrease), the 2nd st for tog will always be worked into the ‘together’│decreases of the previous row. 
  • All ‘together’ sts will be referred to as “dc” or “sc” on subsequent rows.
  • Yarn is not cut between rows│color changes for Striping; the yarn is “floated” {see Photo within pattern} to the next Rnd.
  • Sample shown is exactly as written with no alterations to pattern. Model has head circumference of 21” [53 cm].

TIP Take care when creating chains between V-sts, keeping them uniform in size will produce the best result.

Balloon Blocking

Soak hat in warm water with a mild detergent appropriate for yarn fiber used, allowing piece to thoroughly saturate; 30 mins minimum.
Remove from water, squeezing out excess (never twist‮”‬xwring!), roll hat in clean towel to remove as much water as possible.

Lay flat to dry or use a balloon {below} to ‘open’ the lace stitches of the crown.

Insert deflated balloon into hat, blow up the ballon to the size desired, measure as you go, making sure not to over-stretch the brim. Allow to dry fully before popping & removing balloon.
