PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Diagram A.2 shows how round beg and ends.

DTR-GROUP:
1 dtr in back loop of first/next tr but wait with last pull through, work 1 dtr in each of the next 3 tr the same way, pull yarn through all 5 sts on hook

REVERSE CROCHET:
Work as dc but backwards. I.e. crochet around from left to right

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every round with tr with 3 ch (do not replace first tr) and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
Beg every dc round with 1 ch (this does not replace first dc) and finish with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 tr by working the next 2 tr tog as follows: Work 1 tr but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next tr but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 tr by working 2 tr in same tr.
----------------------------------------------------------

BERET:
The piece is worked top down. Work 4 ch on hook size 4 mm with Lima and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Then work A.1 as follows (repeat A.1 5 times in total on round):

ROUND 1: A.2 shows how round beg and ends - READ CROCHET INFO. Work 10 tr in ch-ring.
ROUND 2: Work 2 tr in back loop of every tr = 20 tr.
ROUND 3: Work * 2 tr in back loop of first tr, 1 tr in back loop of next tr *, repeat from *-* 10 times in total = 30 tr.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 tr in both loops in first tr, 1 ch, 1 tr in both loops in same tr, 4 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 dc in next tr, 4 ch, skip 2 tr *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total.
ROUND 5: Work * 1 dc around ch (= ch between tr from previous round), 3 ch, 1 dc around same ch, 8 ch, skip: 4 ch + 1 dc + 4 ch *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total.
ROUND 6: Work * 7 tr around first/next ch-space (= space with 3 ch), 4 ch, 1 dc around next ch-space (= space with 8 ch), 4 ch *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total.
ROUND 7: Work * 1 dc in middle tr in tr-group (= 4th tr), 4 ch, 7 tr in next dc, 4 ch *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 8: Work * 4 tr around ch-space, 1 tr in back loop of each of the 7 tr from tr-group, 4 tr around next ch-space *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total = 75 tr.
ROUND 9: On this round work all tr in back loop of tr from previous round: Work * 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in each of the next 14 tr *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total = 80 tr.
ROUND 10: Work * 1 tr in both loops of first/next tr, 4 ch, skip 3 tr *, repeat from *-* 20 times in total.
ROUND 11: Work * 1 ch, 4 tr around first/next ch-space *, repeat from *-* 20 times in total = 80 tr and 20 ch.
ROUND 12: Work * 3 ch, 1 DTR-GROUP – see explanation above – over the next 4 tr, 6 ch, 1 dtr-group over the next 4 tr, 6 ch, 1 dtr-group over the next 4 tr, 6 ch, 1 dtr-group over the next 4 tr, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total = 20 dtr-groups with 6 ch between each.
ROUND 13: Work 3 tr around first ch-space, 6 tr around each of the next 19 ch-space, 3 tr around last ch-space = 120 tr.

Then work piece with tr in back loop as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 tr in every tr.
ROUND 2: Work 1 tr in every tr AT THE SAME TIME dec 3 tr evenly READ DECREASE TIP = 117 tr.
ROUND 3: Work 1 tr in every tr but work every 12th and 13th tr tog = 108 tr.
ROUND 4: Work 1 tr in every tr but work every 11th and 12th tr tog = 99 tr.
ROUND 5: Work 1 tr in every tr AT THE SAME TIME dec 11-5 tr evenly = 88-94 tr.
ROUND 6-9: Work 1 tr in every tr.
ROUND 10: Work with a double thread. Work REVERSE CROCHET – see explanation above – the entire round. Fasten off.
----------------------------------------------------------

ROUND 9: Work * 1 dc in first/next tr, 5 tr in middle ch in ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round (= 28-30 times in total). Fasten off.

Then work A.3 in ch-ring (= 96-104 ch) in opposite direction as follows:
ROUND 1: Work * 1 tr in both loops of first/next, 4 ch, skip 3 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire round (= 24-26 times in total).
ROUND 2: Work 4 tr in every ch-space = 96-104 tr.
ROUND 3: Work * 2 ch, 1 dtr-group over the next 4 tr, 4 ch, 1 dtr-group over the next 4 tr, 2 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire round (= 12-13 times in total) = 24-26 dtr-groups.
ROUND 4: Work 2 tr around first ch, 4 tr around every ch-space until 1 ch-space remains, 2 tr around last ch-space = 96-104 tr.
ROUND 5: Work 1 tr in back loop of every tr = 96-104 tr.
ROUND 6: Work * 1 tr in back loop of first/next tr, 1 ch, skip 1 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 48-52 tr and 48-52 ch.
ROUND 7: Work 1 tr in back loop of every tr and 1 tr around every ch = 96-104 tr.
ROUND 8: Work * 1 tr in both loops of first/next tr, 3 ch, skip 3 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round (= 24-26 times in total).

Hello Drops! Thank you for your truly beautiful designs. My question is about row 12 for the beret. Is it possible that we should end up with = 25 tr-groups since we start with 100 stitches and TR-groups have 4 stitches? I have the right amount of stitches in previous rows. Should the round be something like: Work ch 3, *1 tr-group over the next 4 dc, ch 6* repeat from * to * for a total of 25 tr-groups with 6 ch between each? Best regards from Vancouver Island, Canada!

DROPS Design 14.11.2016 kl. 10:09:

Dear Denise, at the end of round 10 you should have 20 ch-spaces with each 4 ch. On round 11 you will crochet 4 dc in each of this ch-spaces, you will have then (4 dc, 1 ch) a total of 20 times. On round 12 you will crochet 1 dtr-group over each of these (each dtr-group is worked over the 4 dc from previous row), you will have then 20 dtr-groups. See also diagram A.1 (= worked a total of 5 times in the round). Happy crocheting!

Redhead 21.12.2015 - 10:53:

I'm new to crotcheting and I'm not sure how to work with a double thread? Do I have to cut the yarn and double it up?

DROPS Design 21.12.2015 kl. 11:57:

Dear Redhead, you have to work this round with 2 strands of yarn held tog as just one. You can use the other end of ball to work at the same time with both yarn from inside and from outside the ball (or with another ball). Happy crocheting!

Bonjour Mme Jannel, le béret est adapté pour un tour de tête de 54/56 et de 56/58 cm, pour un tour de tête plus petit, vous pouvez diminuer davantage pour ajuster à la taille souhaitée. Bon crochet!

Bigras Claudette 27.05.2015 - 22:50:

Ce modèle est très élégant et féminin. J'aime bien les ajourés.
