Seriously, you can find patterns galore for crocheted applejack hats, but not knitted.  So I made my own.  I made it as a thank you for my secret Santa from work, even though she should've been my Hanukkah Harriet, but I digress.  She went above and beyond what I wanted.  I thought this would be her style.  It's just wool-ease.  The band around the bottom is a woven cable; and I slipped the stitches to demarkate the triangle panels that make a typical applejack style cap.

The brim has buckram for shape.  What do you think?  I'll give it to her Monday since she called out sick on Friday.

What do I think?  I think I want a pattern!  SO ADORABLE!  Any chance you would be generous enough to post a pattern?  Pretty please?

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

Thanks for the compliments - I think it's cute too!
I do remember the pattern; I'm making another one just to be sure that I have it right.  I'll let you know when I post it to my site

I had been seriously looking for a knitted pattern like this also!  I couldn't figure out why I could only find crochet patterns and I certainly don't know how to make my own  (still kind of a novice knitter).  I didn't know they were called "applejack" hats either. 

Your friend should totally love this.  It's perfect!!

That's a new one on me, too. I know them as newboy caps.

You're right, though, that are surprisingly few patterns for knitted ones (not a single free one that I know of, and only a couple in books).

I think Newsboy caps are more fitted on the head than Applejacks, which are a bit poofier.  I like cabby hats too.  That'll be my next venture, to figure out how to make one of those.  I'm thinking it'll be just like a giant sock heel in the back.  We'll see how that works out!
