This newsboy hat is both stylish and trendy. It can also be made in a beanie style by omitting the brim. This hat has interesting architectural features made by the shell/ cluster stitch and the front post double crochet used in the pattern.
This hat was inspired by a hat found in my mother’s closet after she passed away. The overall look is the same though the fit and size are different. I have searched for a similar pattern, so that I could give credit to my inspiration but I have not been able to find anything similar.
Red Heart yarn or any worsted weight yarn
6.5mm (K) hook- or hook needed to obtain gauge
embroidery needle to weave in ends
Womens Finished length of hat is 7” and approx. 19-20” in diameter.
1st two rounds = 3”.
Measurement after round 4 is 6”
Be sure to use loose tension when making this hat
Brim is optional but will require two strands of same color. You can either work from both ends of a skein or you can use two skeins. OR you can wind a ball to set aside before you begin (I wound the yarn around three of my fingers (closed) 50x to be safe)
Please watch this video on the magic circle/ring if you are unsure of this method
As with any pattern please read the entire row/step before beginning to crochet. Please watch any video’s suggested or read any posts suggested, if you need further clarification
