Water Wheel Motif Beret 092112





The thought of having one more unfinished project simply wasn’t doing it for me, so I decided to take my single skein of cotton 4-ply yarn and make a Water Wheel Motif Beret. 

The pattern is very simple and can be modified as necessary, to create the appropriate size for whoever might be your recipient. This is an original pattern I personally designed to share with you. As expected, all copyright and intellectual rights apply. Thank you.

Begin by making a Water Wheel Crochet Motif that is a few rounds larger than the diameter you need to fit your recipient. Once your motif is large enough, add the trim according to the following steps.

Water Wheel Motif Beret Trim 092112 Instructions
Step 1:  Chain 1, single crochet in same space; single crochet in each stitch around
Step 2:  Chain 1, single crochet decrease (working over the next 2 stitches the same way you worked double crochet decrease stitches) in the 1st two and last two stitches of each double crochet block of stitches; back loop only single crochet in all the stitches in between the single crochet decrease stitches.

Single Crochet Decrease
Step 1:  Insert hook in desired stitch or space.
Step 2:  Yarn over, draw up a loop
Step 3:  Insert hook in next stitch or space
Step 4:  Yarn over, draw up a loop
Step 5:  Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook
I’m currently working on a few other original patterns to share with you. As soon as the tutorials are completely fine-tuned, you’ll be seeing them here on this blog.

 

Best of Friday to you, good people! Happy crocheting and have a wonderful weekendJ
