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.
Baby Boy Newsboy Cap
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.
