Are you on Ravelry? If so you can just search for newsboy under patterns.

I found that Stitch & Bitch Nation has a pattern - you might be able to get the book from your library if you don't have it.

That's where I got my pattern from. Unfortunately, when I looked for a free knitting pattern some time ago, I couldn't find one, but I was able to find many free crocheted patterns. I did a pretty good job of scouring the internet for a knitting pattern back when I looked, so I'd say that trying to get a copy of the SnB book at your library might be your best bet.

You need to buy the book or see if you can get it from your library. Sharing patterns is a copyright violation.

Whether you are looking for a Sixpence in Norway, a Cheese-cutter in New Zealand and Canada, a Dai cap in Wales, or a Scally cap in North America, what you are really looking for is a flat cap, or a newsboy cap. Other names that have been attributed to newsboy caps include: bunnet, derby, driving cap, Gatsby cap, Golf cap, Hogans cap, Ivy Cap, Scone bunnet, and a Windsor cap. Regardless of the name, however, the basic shape and style of the newsboy cap is the same. A newsboy cap is a flat, gently rounded cap. It has a small brim in the front with a stiffer peak in the back. Usually the material used to construct a newsboy cap is tweed or wool, but they have often been made of leather, vinyl and suede as well. The style of the newsboy cap has been dated as far back as the 14th Century in England where it was often worn by working class men. The style eventually became considered to be casual country wear that was worn by wealthy English men during leisure activities which led to the cap being known as a gold cap.
