Here's an easy beret pattern that will work up quickly for Christmas presents.

Hook: 9mm (N hook), Susan Bates M hook.

Yarn: Lion brand Woolease Superbulky #6.

You may work in a continuous spiral or slip stitch to join and chain 2 at the end of each round.

*Chain 4. Work 8 dc stitches in the ring.
*2dc in each stitch around
*2dc in each stitch around
*2dc in one stitch, 2 dc around
*2dc in one stitch, 3 dc around
*2dc in one stitch, 4 dc around
*1 dc in each stitch around
*dc 4, decrease around
*dc 3, decrease around
*dc 2, decrease around
*(optional) slip st around for a better fit

At this point, try the beret on and see how it fits. I have a 22 1/2 inch head and this fits fine. You may have to do one more or one less decrease row. They're very warm and it will work out great if you live in a climate with subzero weather. Works up very quickly and you'll get a lot of compliments on it.

You may use this pattern for personal use or to sell finished items, but please do not sell the pattern and do give me credit for it.

Welsh corgis are cool.
