I am looking for a pattern for what I think is called a News Boy Hat or Cap. It has a bill. I think I've seen this here somewhere??There is one on Knitty but not quite the style looking for. Thanks for any help.

There is one in the Men issue of Knit.1. You might try the library? Or try www.knittingpatterncentral.com

Here's one (http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/kap/kap.html). And here's another. (http://www.thedietdiary.com/knittingfiend/Hats/HKNewsBoy.html) There's also a cabled "headline news" cap in one of the SnB books.

My Mom requested that I knit her a newsboy cap recently and since I didn't care for any of the above patterns, I ended up making my own. I basically made a beret with a short ribbed band, and attached a bill to it.

Thanks for the info. It's for a guy so will ponder this a while!

If it's for a guy, are you sure you don't want a flat cap? Also known as a cabbie hat or an old man hat:


I stole one off my G-pa and wear it all the time.

Here's one that's crochet. (http://www.dianelangan.com/CrochetPatternFiles/websafenames/feltcab.html)

I can't find anything else, though. Sorry!
