If you’re looking for a cracking free pattern for a beret, ‘Reverie’ should be on your list. Published in Knitty, it’s an ideal choice for a patterned yarn as well as solid colour ways.
For a beret that drapes like a pro, go for a yarn which has an alpaca or silk content. For something with a little more structure, consider a merino or BFL base.
