Tanisia-2 Tanisia-1 Jaime-1

I call this Linda’s Beret.  It reminds me of the berets made popular in Paris.  It can be “shaped” in a variety of ways .  I really like it worn pushed to one side.  Listed are the instructions.  Hopefully I didn’t miss any steps.

Any type of Medium No. 4 Yarn; Size J Hook (6.0mm or 5.5mm)

Gauge is not important; this had will fit a medium to large size head circumference 21 – 22 inches.

This hat will be great to give as a gift and to make in an array of different colors. It is cute and sassy and can be dressed up or down. Also, it can be crocheted in different stitches; It can be worn like the Paris Beret and shaped in many different ways. Besides the beanie, it is my absolute favorite.
