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.

Easy to follow instructions....love the wide range of sizes. The finished product is outstanding.
I've already made two for myself (to try it out) and two for my nephew! S very simple but attractive pattern to begin your crocheting journey with!
This hat is super-easy and I love the pattern instructions. They are VERY clearly written. She steps out every size and every row, instead of just writing variations on one pattern. It makes the printout long, but the pattern is sooooo easy to work! Be sure to read my comments for my project as posted. Thanks for such a great pattern! (ps I made the largest size hat with G hook; I think I will go up to H for next hat)
This is a fabulous pattern. With sizes from newborn to adult, I think I'll be getting a lot of use out of it. Plus, I've always wanted a hat like this but have a rather large head and a lot of hair to contend with - they're usually too small, but not if you make your own!

Irish Hooks & Yarn is the realization of a dream to hand-crochet items that will be special to the giver and the receiver of the item. My passion for crocheting began after my first daughter was born. My mother taught me the basics and before long I had mastered some of the fine points. It's wonderful to now be able to showcase my own designs on Craftsy!
