Basic Knit Beret Hat

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

This Basic Beret is quick and easy to make. Once you have mastered it, you can add in details such as color work or cables. It’s a great base for your own creativity. It also is lovely just as it is. It can be made with just one skein of Lion Brand Heartland, which has a wonderful shine and comes in a great variety of colors.
