Isabella's Fireside Girl Beret

We love Phineas and Ferb around here.  A lot.  Mims likes to pretend that she's Isabella, so I decided to make her an Isabella-in-her-Fireside-Girl-uniform costume.  I don't know if this is going to be her Halloween costume, but it's fun for playing dress up, and it's cute to wear out in public.  People who know will recognize her, and those that don't will just think she's adorable.  Either way it's a win for this mom.

Isabella's Fireside Girl beret is gold with a red bow.  You could use my Dynamite Beret! pattern if you wanted to make an adult sized version.  This version should fit kiddos 3-10...

Fasten off.  Weave in ends.

Isabella's Bow
(use Red yarn)
Loops:
ch 37
R1: hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in each ch across (36 st)
R2-5: ch 1, 5 hdc, 8 dc, 10 hdc, 8 dc, 5 hdc (36 st)
R6: ch 1, 5 sc, 8 dc, 10 sc, 8 dc, 5 sc (36 st)
Fasten off.

Center:
ch 7
R1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across (6 st)
R2-14: ch 1, sc in each st across (6 st)
Fasten off.

Grab your yarn needle and use the tail end of the big loop piece to stitch the short sides together into a loop.





Weave in any leftover ends.

Wrap the center piece around the center of the loop piece to make a bow.  Using the leftover yarn tail from the center piece, sew the center short ends together.






Tug the top corners of your bow up to make them nice and pointy, just like Isabella's bow!
Now you're ready to stitch it to the front of the beret.


Yippee!  You're done!  Now try it on a cute little girl!  But get your own, because this one is MINE!  :P

Mims loves being my model, but she get's a little squirrely sometimes.
Here are her outtakes:

  1. The hat is adorable, but your model takes the cake! I adore the outtake photo in the upper left corner! Sassy little squirrel! LOL. Nice job, Jaime - it does look just like the one in the cartoon, but even sweeter! :)

    1. Oh she is such a sassy squirrel! She and I watch America's Next Top Model every once in a while, and so she got all model-y on me this time. I couldn't get her to stand still, she kept telling me she was trying to give me 'options'. LOL!!! I need to teach her to stand still and Smize.... :D (If I had the cash I would be the craziest Pagent Mom ever!)

  2. *screams like an excited little girl*
    I LOVE THIS!!!! I'm a HUGE Phineas and Ferb Fan...it's all I think about! :)If I were to add a couple of stitches at the beginning, do you think it would fit me? I'm 15 with an average teen/adult sized head. ;)

    1. Yes!! Kaleigh, go to my free patterns list and use the pattern I put up last month for the Dynamite Beret which would be just the right size. Swap out the last 2 rows (R26-27) for 3 rows of single crochet (56 stitches). Then make the bow and you're set!

    1. She was soooo happy! I kinda underplayed how much she pretends to be Isabella... To get to dress like her was just the coolest thing ever in Mims's book...

  10. Finished it and put it up on Ravelry! About to email you pics for the gallery here :) (hey, I know that you don't have many patterns up on ravlery - I'm guessing you're just too busy -- but how would you feel about ME submitting the patterns I've made of yours? There's a place on there where I can submit patterns that aren't already in their library of patterns -- I just don't want to presume if you're planning on adding them yourself at some later time.... or, if you prefer that I don't, I'll respect that -- but if you don't mind - I'd like to know your preference for linking it to your ravelry account - should I say your name or Crochet Dynamite?)
    xo!

    1. I would love you forever if you wanted to do that. I am a little intimidated and overwhelmed by Ravelry, so anything that you want to put up is amazing. I never will turn down your offers to help me!!!
      I have a Crochet Dynamite project page (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/CrochetDynamite) if that helps... i don't know what i'm doing...

  11. OK! I did it -- take a look and let me know what you think when you get a chance..... I didn't know how you might feel about putting pics of M up, so I just put the beret-only pic up. And I'm hoping that you as the designated designer can edit the pattern page, add/change pics if you want, change the wording, whatever, if there's anything you want to change, I hope you can (it would be dumb if it was now set-in-stone and you couldn't change it).
    :)
    It was actually pretty easy to do -- I just followed the directions step by step and copied everything from here as much as I could, and left out anything I couldn't find. :D
    xo!

  12. well.... I kind of went a little crazy and added them for all 4 of your patterns that I've made. :P Hope they are ok. :)
