Crochet Pattern: Mock Bobbles Beret in 3 Sizes

Free crochet pattern: Mock Bobbles Beret in Sprightly Acrylic Worsted yarn by Underground Crafter | This textured beret is made with a combination of tall and short crochet stitches. Available in infant, child, and adult sizes.

The Mock Bobbles Beret updates a classic style with a pop of texture. This pattern uses a combination of tall and short stitches to create the look of bobbles in an easier way. I used a neutral color for my version but you could completely change the look with a vibrant or pastel yarn. Best of all, this hat is available in three sizes — infant, child, and adult — so you can make a matching family set.

Last year, I made the Mock Bobbles Cowl. I had a lot of fun playing with mock bobbles (which, in my variation, are a combination of triple and single crochet) and I knew I wanted to make a hat using the same stitch pattern. But what shape or style of hat? My maternal grandmother used to crochet berets, and as a child, I had one in an off-white color. When I got this sample of Sprightly Acrylic Worsted from Craftsy, all of the ideas came together and I started working on this beret.
