One day my friend mentioned in conversation that she would love to have for her girl strawberry hat.
I was intrigued by what she has in mind and fumbled on the internet hoping to find something I do not know what. And indeed, I found a strawberry pattern! by Iin Wibisono So I got the idea to use this pattern for the beret hat.
Used green 100% cotton yarn and red Sensation Caribbean Cotton 56%-Acrylic 38%-Polyester 6% blend
Chain necessary number of chains for head rim. Crochet 4-5 rounds Single Crochet(Sc)

Use this video how to crochet strawberry stitches, but make Sc rounds by NOT skipping center of strawberry as said in the video, thus there is a necessary extension of the beret. Make 3-4 rounds of strawberry pattern.
After extension we have to start narrowing beret. For this in the rounds where you make Sc, at regular intervals make 2 Sc together. Continue to decrease till you reach center of the beret. Tighten the stitches, cut off and hide the end of the yarn between inside stitches.
And, what I got!
