This groovy beret is colorful (although you can certainly make it in a solid color as well), delightfully slouchy and is sure to brighten any wardrobe. It’s retro chic!

It features a flower motif at the back and the hat is very roomy and can fit lots of hair.

You will need three colors of a DK or light worsted weight yarn such as Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. Be sure that you have about 175 to 200 yards of yarn (all colors used collectively). I used the colors Slate Charcoal, Banana and Wild Orange to make the multi-colored hat in the photos. The solid color hat was made from the Lapis colorway.

LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY:
Beginner to Advanced Beginner

STITCHES AND TECHNIQUES YOU NEED TO KNOW:
You need to be familiar with single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc) stitches, working chains and joining with a slip stitch for working in the round.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS:
The finished hat will fit heads from 21” to 23”. Instructions are also included to make the hat more snug at the edge if you need to.
