Donegal Cap for Babies to Adults

from Irish Hooks & Yarn
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Donegal Cap  for Babies to Adults
Donegal Cap  for Babies to Adults
Donegal Cap  for Babies to Adults

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should know how to read a pattern and crochet in the round.

Pattern Description:

In looking for some additional hat styles for baby boys, I went searching for a pattern for this type of newsboy hat with the pinched front ... aka Jeff cap, driving cap, golf cap, scally cap ... I call it a Donegal cap because of our family ties to County Donegal, Ireland.

When I couldn't find a pattern that would allow me to sell the hats online, I decided that I would use my crocheting expertise to design my own hat ... and the Donegal cap was born.
