The Parisienne Beret is the hat of european dreams! With simple stitches and all-in-one construction, this hat works up fast and is sure to please all the girls in your life!
I am always inspired by vintage fashion and feminine romance, so this Beret was a cold weather must-have! I upped the romance factor even more by cross stitching a simple heart on the side of my hat. You could get really creative with embellishments here and stitch on 3D flowers (like my crochet roses), other appliques (my crochet hearts), or just leave your simple beret bare!
SWEATER PATTERNS I LOVE (& you should too)
Lion Brand’s Touch of Alpaca yarn is one of my favorite cold weather yarns! It has a slight fuzz from the addition of luxe alpaca to the basic acrylic base yarn. The color selection from this line of yarn is one of my favorites offered by Lion Brand, and this purple aster color is gorgeous!
I also used Lion Brand’s DIYarn mini skeins to make the cross stitched heart on my hat in the color Cream. These little skeins are perfect for accents like this one and are very inexpensive for the quality!
