About the designer

Both my grandmothers taught me how to crochet when I was a child. In the fall of 2010, I got involved with crocheting again and it has quickly become a passion. I love creating patterns!

Pattern Description:

For a matching diaper cover pattern, try my Pumpkin Diaper Cover, it has the perfect texture to go with this cap.

This is a PDF pattern for a newsboy beanie with a lot of different looks! Try it in camo yarn and add military buttons for a military look, or try camo yarn with an orange edge for a great hunter look. You can also use regular solid colors, this is a great newsboy pattern on it's own. Fast and easy (if you are comfortable with front post and back post stitches), this one is a favorite of my pattern testers!

Skill Level: Intermediate.

All of my patterns are written in U.S. Standard Crochet Terminology.
