My husband has this scally cap that he wears ALL THE TIME.  He wants a new one and I'd like to make it, but just looking at it, I can't figure out how.  Do you  know of any patterns out there for one?  I may not be looking hard enough, but I can't find one.

I'm looking for such a pattern Huh, maybe we can brainstorm a bit and come up with some thing .now as much as I've found the drivers cap,correct me if I'm off,is somewhat in the realm of a Beret i figure that its somewhat a shaped Beret with a bib. I've tried a few times but i can over think the construction of a pattern be it that I'm a rookie and get frustrated. and how do you get that pork chop side view. idea is it possible to get a sewing pattern of the hat and graft it out with graph papper.  :-\as you can see I'm all over the place. callabo please!

I don't know "Scally" cap but I broke down & canabalized an old driving cap of my dad's in order to make him some new ones. Every pattern I found was either a beret or a girly slouchy newsboy cap.
The good news was it was incredibly easy once I had the old one disassembled for a pattern, 4 very simple pieces.

I think this person is actually looking for a SCULLY cap...they just spelled it wrong Smiley  I have not seen any pattern for such an item, I'm sure one could easily be crocheted or knit though!

I debated that too Smiley but listing "driver cap" with it made me think it was something I'm not familiar with. No worries, I'd rather share info and have it not be what they were looking for than not share something when it might have been exactly what they needed.

Is this along the lines of what you're looking for?



I don't know the phrase scally cap, but this is what came up on google.

a SCALLY is just like in the picture.

if you search for a scully, you will likely find crochet patterns similar to beanies.

(here's an OLD picture of me and my boyfriend from the side, this might help someone draft a pattern)

 I learn something new every day Smiley (sweet picture too!)

Worst case scenario I could copy the one I made & send it to you, not a professional pattern by any means... PM if you're interested.

Maybe you could find an old cap and take it apart carefully and make a pattern out of it.  I have searched and found the newboys but no scully, driver or golf cap at this time.

Penlowe that is sweet to share your pattern.

So I had a couple PM's Smiley (I feel so popular)

Writing a tute & taking pics is not an issue for me, I taught high school once upon a time, but putting the pattern itself up in such a way that others can use it is my stumbling block.
I know some people are capable of making PDF files but I can't even email my pictures to people..... I'll need some time to work it out or find a person IRL to work with me.

Knitted cap patterns are plentiful, sewn ones are not.

When I worked at a gift shop, we sold "newsboy caps".  They look like berets.  The only patterns and pattern reviews I found were:

Kwik Sew Pattern #3133.  It's sized small, medium and large (20-22") I think this is the picture:
http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/patterns/sewingpatterns.pl?patternid=5046

If you are motivated, you could probably take View B and size the pieces smaller so it's not as floppy.

I saw a woman's review of a Vogue pattern:
http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m31/cidell/pattern%20review/Vogue%208309/Page_1.jpg

 Sizes: [S(211/2"), M(221/2"), L(231/2") (from the website)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?  I don't think it's nearly as 'full' or 'floppy' looking as it is on the model.

Were the instructions easy to follow?  Very easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? 
Just four pattern pieces! I love the newsboy hat look, but I hate having to cut out those zillion little pie pieces.


Hope this helps!

I think it is Burda 7996 that has it in print right now.

I bought one at the thrift shop and I have taken it apart, my next step will be to copy it out and test my pattern. When succesful I will post it all  Grin. I am also working on a cadet hat too so it may be a few days

I know this is a pretty old posting, but i just stumbled upon it in my hunt for a pattern for this style of hat. I was wondering if anyone still had a pattern available for the cap.
Any help is appreciated!
