Show off your style with this fun, textured newsboy. The Bobble Button Newsboy hat transports you back in time to the roaring 20s. The buttons on the visor give you the look of a cloche without being TOO buttoned up.

The seed stitch visor and band lead to the main bobble-covered hat. Rounds of offset bobbles project loads of texture. The simple decreased crown and modified gathered bind off keep the crown from being too bulky.

Loom: 5/8” large gauge (LG) loom with at least 24, (36, 48) pegs. Instructions for alternate loom sizes included.

Yarn: 2 strands of worsted (#4) weight yarn held together may be used (Red Heart Super Saver shown in original sample.)
