Finishing: You will want to break off the yarn approximately a foot away from your last knitted stitch. Pull the yarn through each loop on the needle, sliding each stitch off the needle so that the yarn is threaded through all the stitches. Pull the yarn tightly and thread through a sewing needle. Secure in place so that the stitches are tight and there isn't a hole where the yarn has been drawn through the loops. Use the yarn to sew the beret seam.

A pom pom or tassel may be sewn to the top of the beret for decoration, if you choose.
