PATTERN

MADE FOR
Charity

SIZE
Adult L, 22″ head

MATERIALS
Yarn:
2.3 oz (about 132 yards) worsted weight yarn
– 1 skein Plymouth Encore Worsted (75% acrylic, 25% wool), 100 g/ 3.5 oz, 200 yards. Color: 217, Black.

Crochet Hook: US Size J-10 (6 mm) crochet hook

GAUGE
First 6 rounds = 7.5″. About 3 DC = 1″; 1 round DC = .75″ tall
Not really important, because you are working from the center out until a certain diameter.

NOTES
Head size is 22″; add 3 to 4″ to this number: work to 25″ to 26″ circumference (at least 8″ across).

At the end of round 7, my beret was 9.25″ across. I then worked 5 rounds of DC for the sides (3″ tall).
