Baby Boy Newsboy Cap

Written by chanie on May 9th, 2011

The best thing about crocheting, for me, is that I can always create the perfect accessory to complement an outfit for my kids. I just go to the yarn store, find a matching color and create hats, bows, headbands or flowers (to sew to socks, shirts, or glue to a clip or headband). My mom purchased the most adorable outfit for my son for Pesach and I knew I had to have the perfect hat to go with it. When he was just born, I made him an aviator style earflap hat to go with his snowsuit, but for this snazzy outfit, and my baby no longer an infant, I envisioned a newsboy cap. I’ve never made one before, so I searched the web for a pattern to create the visor/brim. I found an easy pattern for girls, which I adapted, to create the most adorable cap for my little one.

To create the basic cap, follow the instructions for the “Cheri Hat” here.

To create the strip above the brim, ch30. DC in each stitch across. Slip stitch all around. Sew button on each side of the strip and sew or glue strip to the top of the brim.

      thanks. my attitude is, I get to share my food, if I want to share my kids, I need their permission, and he’s too young to for that! :)

  4. I love crocheting but have always been afraid to try anything that is worked in the round (which limits me pretty much just to blankets!). How did you learn to crochet in the round?

      I was the same way. Actually I was so afraid to knit in the round (on 4 double pointed needles, so complicated!) that I taught myself to crochet. I love crocheting, it is so much easier! Crocheting in the round it really easy. I taught myself by watching videos by the Art of Crochet by Teresa on YouTube. In the beginning it took some time, I had to unravel my first hat quite a few times until I got it right. Practice makes perfect :)
