This beautiful beret knits up quickly as a great accessory for yourself or a friend. The beret begins with a provisional cast-on for the cable, which is worked flat, then joined with Kitchener Stitch. The rest of the hat is worked in the round from the brim and includes picking up stitches, increases, and double decreases. An online video tutorial is available for the provisional cast-on [here](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRzQbnBHQiw).
The pattern includes a chart for the cable, and line-by-line instructions.
