Try an advanced search on Ravelry (free to join) or at Pattern Central for a beret and see if you can find a pattern you like and one that has the right amount of slouch. If it's not written for straight needles, you can adapt it to straight needles by picking a point for the seam, somewhere between cable columns. Add in an extra st on each side of the break for seaming and when you read the directions, remember that you'll be knitting back and forth on the straights and not all on the outside of the beret as you would in the round. Knit sts will be purls on the back, purls will be knits.
