Product details

Sometimes to change things up a bit (or hide a bad hair day...or keep my head warm) I like to put on a hat.  Something about a good hat makes me feel uplifted (literally: for whatever reason, hats make me feel taller so I think I stand a little straighter) and a little more confident.  I’ve been wanting a newsboy-style-hat for ages, and I finally have one - and you can, too! 

This cap is worked starting with the brim.  The brim is shaped using short rows and a piece of flimsy plastic is inserted part way through the process to stiffen the brim.  The hat is then worked from the brim to the crown with some shaping to give it a traditional newsboy-cap shape and fit.  Another piece of plastic is used to craft a small button for the very top of the hat.  This hat is way easier than it looks and people are super impressed that it’s hand knit!  I hope you feel awesome when you wear it.

You will need a piece of plastic (I used a plastic placemat from my local dollar store) for the brim stiffener and to make the button for the top
