Beret from felted sweater

Apr 05, 2019
Article Image

Made from a felted sweater. The top is cut in a slightly rectangular circle measuring 11 x 13 inches. The bottom is cut to the matching outside dimensions with a 7 1/2 inch circle cut in the middle and offset to one corner by an inch so it isn’t centered. 2 lengths of ribbing slightly shorter than the circumference of the inner circle were cut from the bottom of the sweater and sewn to the inner circle in the method used to attach ribbing to T-shirt necklines. Top and bottom were then placed and sewn together. Variegated yarn was used to blanket stitch the edges of the beret and the flower, which is simply a circle of the fabric. The flower was pinched together a bit and stitched onto to wide part of the hat bottom. A 2 x 1/4 inch tab was cut, folded in half and stitched to the center of the top at the fold. Always worn at an angle, usually with the hand felted scarf also shown in photos. My photos.
