Ribbed Newsboy Hat Knitting Pattern in 5 Sizes -- pdf # 131

PLEASE NOTE: This is a set of instructions, not the physical object. Once you have paid, you will receive an email with instructions for downloading your pattern pdf, along with 3 other files:
1) yarn and needle terminology and equivalents
2) how to make your own double-pointed needles
3) newborn photography and digital editing tips

This is a knitting pattern for making this adorable ribbed newsboy hat yourself! (Think! Who do you know that's a knitter?)
Actually, with all the videos on YouTube, there's no excuse for not learning any more!

Instructions are given for knitting the hat in five sizes:
Larger Newborn to 3 months
3 to 6 months
6 to 12 months

I specialize in clear, thorough instructions, and coaching is included!

This is knit "in the round" with a circular knitting needle and finished with double-pointed needles. You can also use this pattern to make a ribbed beanie, if you leave off the brim. Sweet with a big button or bow sewn on. Or try putting it on baby backwards, to LOOK like a simple beanie.

Permission is granted to sell hats knitted from this pattern.

Many thanks to test knitter Mandi Yelland of www.littleknitknacks.com for test knitting, and to Andrea Kinter for the precious newborn photograph. Check with Mandi if you are interested in purchasing the knitted hat, instead of my knitting pattern.

Thanks also to test knitter Zuzana Hudakova for these wonderful photographs of her own handsome little son in the darker blue cap! Zuzana is in the UK. See more of her excellent photograpy at www.zuhuda.com.

Digital downloads
File delivery
Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.


I accept credit cards, Etsy gift cards, and PayPal as instant payments.

If none of these work for you, I will also accept a US check or money order by mail.
I'm sorry, but no Canadian checks or money orders. The fees to process them cost more than their face value, usually.

Returns & exchanges

I do accept returns on knitted items if returned immediately, but I cannot refund the shipping fee you pay to me, nor the money you pay the post office to send it back to me.

Additional policies

I welcome questions about custom orders.
