DIY: Crochet Cable Beret Free Pattern

I crocheted this cable beret for Tomiko using turquoise 100% wool. I have a wool felt turquoise beret from Lilliput Hats, a traditional millinery here in Toronto. Tomiko ‘borrowed’ that hat for a while this winter, and I only got it back after I promised to crochet a similar hat for her.

The free pattern works up quickly with less than a skein of medium weight DK yarn. The hat uses front post double crochet stitch to create the cables, interspersed in the increases and decreases of the double crochet stitches that shape the beret. I have a large noggin, so I made sure it was super tight for me in order for it to fit Tomiko’s head. If you’re making it for own head, you can alter the decreases in the row 18, and continue with that number of stitches in rows 19 and 20.

  15. Hi,
    Lovely beret, thanks for posting!
    But, I am stuck! I’m at the end of row 4 with 45 stitches, and have tried row 5 several times, but how do you end up with 14 FPDC and 13 x 4 DC in between from 45 stitches? Wouldn’t that be 14 plus 13 x the 3 DC in between which aren’t on the same stitch as the FPDC, which adds up to 53 stitches?
    Thanks in advance for any help 🙂

    1. We misplaced the beret, so as soon as we find it I will try to see if I can fix the instructions!

    2. Hi Hetty,
      At row 5, I’ve got 14 FPDC, and 13×4 DC. The last and 14th ‘section’ in between the FPDC has a fifth DC that snuck in from the ch2 that started the row. Does that help? The total row has 71 stitches. Hope this helps!

  16. […] one for a hat can be fun. Here I’ve pinned a sparkly rhinestone and pearl brooch to a white cable crochet beret. You can easily swap in brooches in whimsical shapes – we’ve got sailboats, camels, […]

  17. […] Kiku Corner has another great crocheted beret project for us to dive into, with a cable design. Just imagine all the wonderful colors this style could be dipped into. […]
