The Twisted Newsboy Hat

This is another design that has been dancing around in my head for the past couple of years. When I designed the Mixed Cluster Newsboy last year, I knew I finally had the skills to make this pattern concept a reality.
The design features a twisted detail created with the front post double crochet. The slightly puffy crown and venting will keep your head cool while the brim will protect you from the sun. I recommend using worsted or aran #4 100% cotton for this hat. This will make the brim nice and stiff so it will stand up on its own.
