This crochet pattern includes instructions to make a range of sizes for the daintiest newborn photo prop through to a full-of-fun adult size.

The paper boat hat is worked seamlessly from front to back with turn-ups to create the shape. While it is suggested you use white or cream as newspaper colours, some variegated yarns can produce nice print effects so don’t be afraid to experiment.

Optional life preserver trim is provided and will require oddments of red, white and brown yarn.
