Crocheted Newsboy Hat

I crocheted my first hat! It was really not as difficult as I thought it would be. I added a crocheted strip and buttons to the front of the hat to make it into a hat for a boy.
I found the pattern here!

I made this hat to give as a baby gift to our Music teacher.
She should be having a baby boy anytime now!
She loved it! It made the cutest/sweetest little baby gift!

  3. This came out great. I need to make a little sunhat for my new 3 month old grandson, but I didn't want to crochet it. I want to make it out of fabric. I like this style, though. Very sweet. Best wishes, Linda

  23. Oops..I see that you posted this a while ago but it came up in my Google search. I also used the same pattern to make my son a hat! I just finished the hat and really want to add the crocheted strip with buttons but I can't find directions on how to do it anywhere!! Did you figure it out yourself or did you find a pattern online for the strip? Thanks! The hat looks great! :)

  25. Literally just made this in less than 3 hours. I just have to weave in the ends and sew on the band and buttons. I didn't see instructions for the band either so I just chained 25, ch 3 (for dc), skip 3, dc across, sl to close. Hope that helps anyone else who's wondering.

    1. Yes, it is the Cheri Hat pattern. I just double crocheted a strip in the length of the hat to add a more boyish feature. I hope that helps!
