After much searching for a hat pattern on the Internet, to no avail, I developed this Newsboy cap knitting pattern (sometimes called a baker’s boy hat). This knit is an easy knitted alternative to the crochet hats being worn this season.

The hat is inspired by designs such as the twiggy style hat - made up in sections, however in this pattern all the sections are knitted in one go, rather than sewn together afterwards. The cap can have either a hard or soft bill (peak/visor/ brim) according to the preference of the maker.

Knit your own hat in a single evening with this simple pattern knit on two needles (not circular), using only basic knit, purl, increase and decrease stitches.

The pattern is clear and straight forward, and includes photos and a stitch diagram for you to follow as you knit your hat.
