Slouchy beanie…

Looking at my hats collection I then realized I do not have one in a black color. This surprising observation came with the unexpected finding of two balls of black yarn completely new into my yarn storage box. Just coincidence? My mum would probably call it ‘a cosmic mess’ , but anyway I decided to kill two birds with one stone giving to those balls a reason to exist and filling my closet gap đŸ™‚

basco1To make this beret I have used 100 gr of Witico black yarn ( 50% wool, 50% acrylic) and my 3.5 mm crochet hook.

basco2The final size that came out fits an adult head circumference of approximately 54-56 cm. Here below is the pattern I made up for this cute beanie, give it a try and let me know if it is clear enough. Personally I found it a bit difficult writing the pattern in words, but I did my best! However if you are more a ‘chart-type’ I will improvise a drawn pattern! Have fun my loved crocheters and see you to the next post ! XX

French Beret…

Salut mes amis! Get ready, today we are going to fly to Paris. If you want to feel a cute “parisienne”, the fashion accessory you cannot miss is the typical French basque. I really love it ! I think it looks adorable on everyone, sophisticated with short hair and romantic with long or medium hair. For sure it gives an extra touch to your style! You can wear it in winter as warm and cozy, but also in spring or summer. If your summers are impossibly hot like in my Country, you can wear it in the evening with a red lipstick looking simply chic and unique. I wanted one to be worn during spring/summer times, so I looked for an openwork pattern and I was captured by this one on the net. http://www.craftideas.us/crochet-beret-for-girls.html

For my beret, I chose the dusty rose that is actually my favorite color and I used 2 threads of cotton together, worked with a 3 mm hook. I love the texture it came out! I also made some adjustments to this pattern skipping the last 5 rows and going directly to the edging band, but this is completely optional. It depends on how slouchy you want your basque to be.

After few hours working voilà this is the final result!!
