This right here is my 18 month old baby girl Charlotte AKA Charlee! I can't even explain how much joy this little spitfire brings our family!! She's a spoiled, sweet, not so sweet, girly girl of a princess!!
...and she knows it too! Lol!
Now! HERE (excuse the picture-i took it off my FB page) is the newsboy hat that I sell a ton of!! Super popular!!
(I made this pattern up after I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for online...if this hat is similar or the same as a pattern that already exists I promise I did not know about it! Thank You!)
I have never ever written a pattern before...ever!! If you should have any difficulty following this pattern please PLEASE feel free to ask and I will try to help as best I can! I am also gonna include some pictures which should help...well...they always help me anyway! ;)
For the yarn I use Vanna's choice acrylic
Hook size "I"
**(When creating this hat for picture purposes, I used a little thicker yarn and added an extra row to make it size 0-3 months. If using Vanna's choice yarn and wanting same size go up to a size hook as well)**
Ok...here we go!
