Souri Beret

Hello friends!
Yes, it's that time again, for my Pattern of the Month :-)
The Souri Beret is a very easy hat to make, even beginners will have no trouble and will have a beautiful beret in a few hours :-)
Perfect for a last minute gift, the Souri Beret only uses a small amount of yarn, so it's a great stash buster as well :-)
P.S. This is also my 100th blog post! :-)
