I got inspired by the American girl doll of the year 2015 Grace Thomas and by the upcoming Valentines Day and created this crochet beret pattern for American girl dolls. It can also be worn as slouchy hat.

Yarn used: Vickie Howell Bernat Cotton-ish. This yarn is a blend of cotton and acrylic, it is heavier than regular acrylic or wool yarn and gives the finished garment a nice drape. Berets shown in photos were made in colours “Coffee Filter” (light brown), Crimson Twine (red) and “Cotton Candy” (pink). Any light worsted weight/DK yarn would work for this project.

Pattern: 
Updated Oct. 13, 2016: I have created a short video showing how to start the hat and make the first round:

Use hook G
Round 1: CH 4. Cl ST 10 times in 4th CH from hook. Sl ST in top of CH 4 to complete round. (10) 

Round 2: CH 3. Cl ST 2 times in each ST around. Join with Sl ST at top of CH 3. (20) 

Round 3: CH 3. *Cl ST 2 times in next ST, Cl ST 1 time in next ST*. Repeat from * to * 10 times. Join with Sl ST at top of CH 3. (30) 

Round 4: CH 3. *Cl ST 2 times in next ST, Cl ST one time in each of next two stitches*. Repeat from * to * 10 times. Join with Sl ST at top of CH 3. (40)
 
Round 5: CH 3. *Cl ST 2 times in next ST, Cl ST one time in each of next three stitches*. Repeat from * to * 10 times. Join with Sl ST at top of CH 3. (50) 
 
Round 6: CH 3. Cl ST in each ST around. Join with Sl ST at top of CH 3.(50)

Round 7: CH 3. *Cl ST D, Cl ST one time in each of next three stitches*. Repeat from * to * 10 times. Join with Sl ST at top of CH 3. (40) 
 
Round 8: CH 3. Cl ST in each ST around. Join with Sl ST at top of CH 3.(40)

Round 9: Place marker. For the ribbing work one SC in each stitch around, do not join, continue working in spiral (40).

Round 10-12: SC in each stitch around in back loops. Crocheting in back loops gives your ribbing a nice ribbed look. Fasten off and weave in ends.


Sew a cute button to one side of the beret as a finishing touch.
Enjoy!
