French Pompom Beret Crochet Pattern

As I've mentioned before, one of my many dreams is to travel throughout France.
To sit at a quiet cafe after strolling past The Seine, or to admire the artwork at the Louvre before taking a moment to to listen to ringing of Notre Dame's bells would be pure perfection... As you can tell, I've thought long and hard about all the things I'd love to experience while there!
I'd also love to learn more about their classic yet elegant fashion, and how they make it look so effortless!
Where would you love to travel one day? Let me know in the comments below!



What You'll Need
10.00mm Crochet Hook
150g Bulky Yarn (12ply) - I used Lincraft Veronica
Tapestry Needle

Finished Size 
Fits 13 Years & Up


Taking your 10.00mm crochet hook and bulky yarn, start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 28 Chains.
Row 1~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the fourth chain from your hook. Then crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the next 4 chains. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the next 14 chains. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the next 4 chains. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the next 4 chains. You should have 28 stitches now.
Row 2~ Crochet 1 Slip Stitch into every stitch across.
Row 3~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the back loop of the next 5 stitches. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the back loop of the next 14 stitches. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the back loop of the next 4 stitches. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the back loop of the next 4 stitches.


Row 4~ Crochet 1 Slip Stitch into every stitch across.
Row 5~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the back loop of the next 5 stitches. Crochet 1 Double Crochet into the back loop of the next 14 stitches. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the back loop of the next 4 stitches. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the back loop of the next 4 stitches. 
Row 6 - 45~ Repeat rows 3 - 4. {Note: You can either add or take away a couple sets of rows 3 - 4, depending on your head's circumference.}
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.

Now taking the yarn and tapestry needle, thread the yarn through the ends of the rows along the edge. {Note: Be sure to thread the yarn through the ends consisting of single crochets, not the ends with half double crochets.}


Once you've threaded your needle along one side, pull the yarn tightly to gather all the edges together until the hole at the top is closed.
Now, sew the two short sides of the hat together to complete your beanie.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.

Then make a Pom Pom using your bulky yarn. I used a Pompom Maker, but if you don't have one you can easily make one using THIS video tutorial. {Note: My pompom measured 4 inches x 4 inches.}
Taking your tapestry/wool needle, attach the pom pom to the very top of your hat.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.

 

Hope you all enjoyed this french pattern!

  2. I was wondering, after looking at some of your posts in which you use crochet hooks that are larger than 6.0mm that most of them are an aluminum metal hook. What brand of hooks do you use? I live in Canada and in the country, I have limited selection and most hooks that are larger than 6.5mm I can only buy as plastic...

    1. All my crochet hooks up till the size 10.00mm are aluminum, because I highly prefer it above bamboo or plastic.
      I've bought a lot of them from Spotlight, but then bigger sizes I had to buy online (Ebay etc.).
      Hope this helps!

  3. Is there another type of yarn you would recommend? I haven't been able to find this type in the States.

  4. Hi there! Love your patterns! But I was wondering if you can clear something up...when you say "back loop" does that mean the top loop of the slip stitch on the back? Also am I counting the chain 2 in the foundation chain as a stitch? Thanks!

    1. Yes, the top loop!
      Chain 2 at the start of the row counts as the first stitch of that row.

  5. Hi,

    Just wanted to clarify the hook size, it says in your page in allfreecrochet.com that you need a US J/10 hook, but in here it says you need a 10.00 mm one. I was wondering which one should i use? Thanks! :)

  7. I'm really struggling with this. I'm a beginner and maybe I just haven't done enough projects to get it right but how can I have the right number of chains (28 in the first row) and then skip 4 and still have 27 on the chain? Are the numbers wrong or am I not doing something right?

    1. I think she's counting the first chain two as well. So, the counts are 2ch-1hdc-4hdc-14dc-4hdc-4sc for a total of 29, which becomes 28 if you count the first chain as a turning chain and not a workable stitch. At least, that's my best guess ^^;
