I just love your stuff!!!! I've made a few of the berets you have on here, i'll be trying this one next, but i was hoping you could share the pattern for the hat with the ear flaps that you have as you profile picture?  Thanx for all the wonderful patterns :)

I love this hat, and wanted to make it so badly, I could not find a dk weight yarn that wasn't baby colors anywhere! I went to three different craft stores today, and they were all either baby colors or not colors that would be good for this amazing hat. I was so frustrated, so now I am using Vanna's Glamour which is fine weight, but we will see how it turns out, because I Love it! and I looked through your other patterns, you are absolutely amazing, it is hard to come across modern crochet patterns, I wish this is what people thought of when they hear the word crochet, everyone I know seems to think of the old school granny patterns and your creations are the perfect example that crochet doesnt have to be granny-looking at all!

 

Thank you for sharing!!

Hi!  I absolutely adore this hat and have attempted making it several times, but I think either my math is off or the pattern is off around row 4.  

Rnd 1 - 8 Ps

Rnd 2 - 2 Ps in each P = 16 Ps

Rnd 3 - 1Ps in same st as joining, *2 Ps in next st, 1Ps in next st* around, ending with 2Ps in last st = 24 Ps

So, for Rnd 4, I have 24 Ps I am working in from Rnd 3.  After "1Ps in same st as joining and 1Ps in next st, 2Ps in next st", which is 4 Ps, I have 20 Ps left to work in.  The repeated part of Rnd 4, "*1 Ps in next st, 2Ps in next st*" (which is 3 Ps total) does not divide evenly into 20, so at the end of the row I have 1 P in the last st and cannot finish the repeated pattern.  

For the record, I am joining by sl st in the first P from the previous row.  Maybe this is where I'm going wrong, and you are joining rows differently?  

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

I love this beret.  But, I have the same problem as hijinks has.  I continued to crochet this beret, but when I finished, it was gappy around the head area and just too small around the band area.  I think what I am going to do is make a beret from another pattern and just put a bow on it.

Hello! Your hat is gorgeous! I run a project for my fellow brain surgery patients who are in need of hats during their recovery process. I am always in search of a great hat that my group of volunteers around the country can make. I wonder if I could have your permission for my group to make your pattern for the purpose of donating the hats to patients? Feel free to contact me at daswunderkind  at cox dot net. If you are at Crochetville or Ravelry you may be familiar with the project from discussions there. (My name is actually Keesha; my Facebook registered name is for privacy.)

I am really looking foward to making this adorable hat. I find the pattern format difficult to follow however. It would be much easier for reading if every round was a new line. I also cannot wear wool. Would you please suggest an alternate choice of yarn I could use. Thanks much.
