Baby/Toddler Berets, Free Crochet Pattern





Until now I had only designed and crocheted baby beanies, but today I want to share something different.

It’s a baby/toddler beret pattern that I came up with. Of the three berets shown in the picture, the lavender one was the first one I made. I used a light weight 3-ply acrylic yarn and size G/6 (4.25 mm) hook. The finished beret came out about 19 inches in circumference; it should fit a girl 12 - 36 months old.

I needed to make a smaller beret, but I didn’t want to change/rewrite the pattern (it was enough work to come up with it in the first place), so instead I simply changed the hook size.

For the pink and beige berets shown in the picture, I used size E/4 (3.5mm) hook and crocheted a bit tighter (personally I prefer working with smaller than recommended hooks anyway), and the berets turned out 16.5 inches in circumference. They should fit a girl under 12 months.






So the pattern is the same, but depending on the hook size you use, you can make a baby or a toddler size beret.
