Knitting Pattern: Yellow Seed Stitch Beret

This is the last knitting pattern I will have for a while, probably the whole season! I took these pictures before I left for Pittsburgh and just forgot to share! How sad is that? Also, I apologize for being a little MIA lately, school is getting crazy as we wind down and Wednesdays are the worst! Sorry One Photo Wednesday! :( I will be back at it again soon though!

Today I am busy modeling in a fashion show and had the opportunity to post between runway shows! The dress I get to model is gorgeous! I feel so lucky that my amazingly talented friend, Jason Gagnon, asked me to model for him! I will update you more on that later, but today I am sharing this fun pattern!



Beret Pattern

Supplies: Circular Needles sizes 10.5 & 15, Double Pointed Needle, size 15, Chunky yarn (I used Lionbrand Hometown USA), stitch marker.

(ADDED NOTE: A few knitters have said that this pattern comes out too small for their noggins. If after casting on the 40 stitches it seems a little small, you can add stitches in intervals of 4! So try casting on 44 stitches or 48 stitches!)

Start with the 10.5 needles and cast on 40 stitches.
Work in a K1, P2 ribbing for 10 rows.

Increase work to 54 stitches (or more if you are working with more than the initial 40 stitches) by *K2, Kfb, * repeat to end of row.
Switch to your size 15 circular needles.

*P1, K1, *repeat to end of row.
*P1, K1, *repeat to end of row.
*K1, P1, *repeat to end of row.
*K1, P1, *repeat to end of row.
Continue for 15-20 rows. The more rows you knit, the slouchier your beret will be! On your last seed stitch row you will want to knit onto your DPN needles.

On your final row *K1, K2tog, *repeat to the end of row. After this row, do a tradition gather method by pulling the yarn through the remaining stitches and tying it off.


This beret is so cute that I made it for winter but it will work all year round! Do you like it? It is a lot more simple than it seems, I promise! I will say more when I am not in full hair and makeup waiting to go on stage! :)

Wishing you a lovely little day!

  1. I really love this hat! I am not a skilled knitter, and have never made a hat before, but I think I will definitely have to give this pattern a go! ^___^

  4. I just made this and truly love it. I also used Hometown usa yarn, BUT it's tiny! 14" diameter? What did I do wrong and would like to make an adult size as I love it!

  5. Love this pattern! I was dying for a slouchy beanie like this and now I've made one using Lion Homespun and another with a really pretty chunky mixed red wool yarn I found on sale at JoAnns and they're both ADORABLE. But keeping a beanie on is kinda hard, so I found some great tutorials on YouTube for keeping it on with bobby pins and also a couple of instructional blog posts on adding combs to the inside with a glue gun that help them stay on. Love, love, love this hat. Thanks for the fun pattern!

  6. I want to make this for a new friend I made over the summer at work - can you give me some idea of how much yarn you used when making it? Did you use the entire skein? More? :D Thanks! Much appreciated!
