Plum Mist Beret

Spring weather means that hats can be less bulky and more of an accessory. The Plum Mist Beret is just that — a lovely little hat that’s reminiscent of a stroll through the streets of Paris.

Pattern Notes

Crocheting between stitches is an alternative to crocheting through both loops, back loop, or front loop. The resulting stitch is effectively a little shorter than a normal stitch, and the stitch pattern becomes more open.
