I'm short on cash and time this year, so I figured I would make my family and friends things. Initially, I was just going to make scarves, but I thought maybe there would be a really nice beret pattern that someone might have that was quick and easy. I would rather not have to spend the money to buy myself some new needles (I have 7, 9, 11, 15, 35), and I'd like to be able to finish the projects as soon as I possibly can. Thick yarn, big needles, etc. Does anybody have any patterns that work??
