Ah the berets. Symbol of French elegance and Parisian chic. However, originally, it was the hat of the Béarn shepherds, created by the shepherds themselves in the 15th century, thanks to the wool of their sheep. He then popularized throughout French territory to the military spheres. And today it is the attribute of all fashionistas wanting to wear a French look.

Today I teach you to make a beret without boss! With a nice detail thanks to the node at the back to add an additional femininity touch.

Stationery :

Step 1: Draw and cut your pieces:

1. On a part of your paper folded in half, draw a half circle of 15cm radius. Cut it, leaving an additional 1cm on the Arc de Cercle (1). (This part will then be called part a)

2. On another part of your paper folded in half, trace the same arc of circle but this time draw a second circle inside, 9 cm of radius (2). Cut it by leaving 1 cm of seam on the arcs of the circle. (This part will then be called part B).

3. Check that the external parts of your patterns correspond well to each other (3).

4. pin your patterns on your woolen folded in half. Cut your pieces (4).

To The end of this step you should end up with 4 songs.

Step 2: Assembly:

5. Cut a 5cm x 0.7cm rectangle and hear it by hand in the center of part A which will become the outside of your beret (1) .

6.Low your 150cm tape in half and pin them half on your inner circle 1.5 cm from the edge. Then pin it until the ends of your ribbon meet on the other side (2).

7. Assemble place against place parts A and parts B (3).

8. Then assemble these two parts together place against the place, leaving an opening of 12 cm so that you can return your beret. Also remember to pin so that the future node is in the axis of your fabric rectangle posed to Stage 5. Before returning, notch all your seams (4).

9. Return your beret, iron the edges flat and close the opening with a seam by hand on board.
