Surroundings Beret – Free Beanie Knitting Pattern

It may not be Winter and beanie-weather here, but I found a pattern I wanted to share with you.

Lincraft is a one-stop-shop for all things art, craft, and homewares. They have a store quite close to my house, and I haven’t been able to stop myself from going in there all the time, almost opening my own store at my house!

On display for everyone needing a new project, I found a free knitting pattern.
