You’ve seen it in TV shows and old movies; a raggedy spiked hat with random decorations adorning it. It goes by several names: palookaville cap, fedora beanie and clubhouse hat, to name a few. But the most common name for it is whoopee cap.

This style came about in the early part of the 20th century and was made popular by youths in the United States. Typically, it was adapted from a man’s felt fedora hat by taking scissors to the brim and creating a scalloped or spiky edge. The brim was then turned up in a crown-like fashion and sometimes decorated. In the 20’s and 30’s, such caps usually indicated the wearer was a mechanic.

Mechanic or not, you can recreate this look for yourself with Revel, the free whoopee cap crochet pattern. Jughead fans will love this hat!
