Raspberry Beret Free Crochet Pattern

05d55143ad1e89fabb36ce126f3c2b12I was so sad to hear the news of Prince Rogers Nelson’s death. He was such a talented musician and performer. Prince was known for his songs such as Kiss, Purple Rain and my personal favorite Raspberry Beret! So, in light of recent events I decided to design a simple beret pattern in his memory. For more beret styles, check out these Free Beret Crochet Patterns.

She wore a Raspberry beret, The kind you find in a second-hand store, Raspberry beret and if it was warm she wouldn’t wear much more, Raspberry beret, I think I love her. -Prince
