Hi everybody,

I'm really in love with newsboy style hats, particularly ones with lots of "slouch" in the back. Kind of like the one I'm wearing here...

I'd really like to start making my own, but I haven't seen any patterns that don't involve knitting. Has anybody seen a tutorial or pattern for one? Any help is appreciated!

Is there a particular way you want to use to make it? I have this book from my local library It has an awsome pattern in it for a fabric newsboy cap and it also has the pattern pieces and tells you that when you photocopy the pattern from the book, how much to enlarge it and stuff. Easy to follow directions too. If you want to crochet one, try crochetpatterncentral.com . they have lots of hat patterns. one of them is here.

If you just want to wing it, they're pretty much berets with a bill on it. You can make the beret part as big as you want so it droops in the back and then just make the bill about the size of the one you already have. Cheesy Good luck!

Thanks for the book recommendation, I'll definitely check it out.

I'm looking to sew the hat, I don't knit or crochet so it would be entirely fabric.

Is this the style of hat? https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=76796.0
I made this from a vintage pattern...

I got Saturday Night Hat for Christmas this year and I love it. I have made two berets and an engineer's hat. I wore them all winter and plan to wear them this fall. The book is really easy to follow, but some of the materials are specific for hat-making and are not available at Hobby Lobby.
