Mon Amie Beret ~ Free Knitting Pattern

Hi Knitting Friends!

I have a free knitting pattern to share today, and if you’d like an ad-free PDF download, you can buy the PDF for $2 in my Ravelry Shop. My Mon Amie Beret is reversible with one nubbly side and one side with a “cracked rib.” It’s knit from super bulky yarn so it’s a speedy make for Fall!

If a favorite hat is like a favorite friend – warm, sweet and multifaceted – why shouldn’t your newest hat be the same?

Mon Amie is a soft and slouchy beret, knit in the round from the bottom up. And it’s reversible! Make one for yourself and your favorite amie!
