Crocheted Beret

This beret is fashioned after one my great grandmother made for my aunt a long time ago. Now that the original one is wearing out, she wanted a new one. Since I didn't have the original pattern my great grandmother used, I went out to find the most basic one I could and then copied the size of the original. This way, the fit and shape would be similar even if the look was different.

I really like the yarn I used, too. It was a cotton, which made it difficult to work with on a metal needle, but it also made it feel very homecrafted, which I always like.
