I had so much fun working with bulky yarn in my last post, I went out and bought me some more from Michael’s. Of course, I just wanted some fun yarn and didn’t really have an end game or a pattern in mind for it. Who let’s that stop them from buying yarn though? :p
So, with a couple of lovely colors I decided to do a pattern that I’ve been wanting to for a while, a newsboy hat. Better yet, the lovely Diana Line was going to show off how great bulky yarn can be. I don’t even know why I was so intimidated by it for so long. Perhaps I’ll buy some super bulky yarn next and let inspiration show up.
Please be sure to sign up for e-mails on the left. And I’m always looking for new testers, sign up to be a tester for me here.

  • Slip St: Slip St
  • Sc: Single Crochet

Notes:

  • You will have to know how to work into the back third loop of a hdc for this pattern.
  • This hat is worked in the round, except for the brim, with a slip st at the end of the row into the first stitch of that same row.
  • There are turns on only SOME rows.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the rows does not count as a stitch.
  • For the adult size, work this pattern as written.
  • For the child size, work rows 1 – 8, skip row 9 and the work rows 10 – 26.
  • Color A is taupe and Color B is the dark purple (in the photos here).
  • This hat wears big and cozy. If you feel like you’d like a tighter hat, remove an increase or follow a chart to know when to stop increasing based on your needs.

        Hi at row 13 I have turned my work and seem to be working back loop inside the hat is this correct?

          Yes, rows 13 through 17, and again on rows 20 – 24, you turn your work and will be working with the inside of the hat facing you. Just be sure that you do the correct amount of turns or you will have some of the pattern backward.

    When working the second color. You turn every row when doing 14 to 17? For some reason I am having trouble. Help

      Yes, you turn every row. In that section your hdc-ing into the slip st spaces and slip st- into the hdc spaces and so you need to turn the work for that to work out right.

    Hi! I’m on the row 19 and I somehow don’t see the back loop. I’m just wondering if I should turn after the row 17 or of I’m just being dumb? 😀

      Are you using the yarn I’m using in the pattern? Did you check your gauge? What size did it end up? If you want to make the hat bigger it’s very easy, just add another increase or as many as you need to the top of the hat. In the pattern I stop increasing after row 9 for the adult size, but you can always add more to make it larger. You will have more stitches but you can just add more repeats of the * to * part of the pattern when you get to the sides. The brim might be tricky, but you could add more to the 21 hdcs in the center to make it larger.
      I hope that’s helpful to you.
      Take care!

        Hi thanks for the advice. Made a larger hat, when attaching yarn for the brim should the right side be facing me?

    I really like the unique twist on the newsboy you have designed. And the purple is another plus. 🙂
