Take the fleece fabric required for the beret.
Cut the pattern template for the larger circle from the given PDF. Fold the fleece and place the template on the fold as shown above.
Mark around the template and cut out the larger circle. Repeat the steps to get one more of the same piece. Now we need to cut out the smaller circle from the center of one of the larger circles.
Fold one of the larger fleece circles in quarter, aligning the edges and mark the center as shown above.
Next, keep the above fleece circle folded in half aligning the edges. Cut out the template for the smaller circle from the above PDF and keep the center of the template matching the center of the fleece circle. Mark around the template.
Cut the small circle out.
Now you have a large solid circle and an “O”.
Keep the “O” over the solid circle with the right sides together and aligning the edges. Pin around the edge.
Sew them together, removing the pins as you go.
Next, we do the cuff for the beret.
Take the fabric strip for the cuff, referring to the table-2 above. Fold it in half widthwise with the right sides together and aligning the edges. Sew the shorter sides shut as marked above. You get a tube.
Next fold the tube halfway up, bringing the raw edges together and exposing the right side.
Make marks on the four quarters of the cuff. Do the same on the inner circumference of the hat also.
Turn the beret over to the right side and slip it inside the cuff. Align the raw edge of the cuff with that of the beret and pin all around, matching the four marks on the beret and cuff.
Sew the cuff onto the beret, making sure to catch both the edges of the cuff, as you go.
Flip the cuff onto the right side and our beret is done!
If you opt to add the bow, find the pattern here,
Just use fleece fabric instead of cotton and make the bow in a smaller size!

Hello, I just love this beret. I don’t have a printer to print the pattern, but wonder if you have the measurements for an adult hat, for the small circle and the large circle. I tried to figure it out on my own, and used a dinner plate for size and it was way to small. Thank you very much.
