Recently, I was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Jen at PieKnits, to knit my own version of the Chunky Newsboy Cap by Diane Serviss:

Newsboycap1 

This is a great pattern for a few reasons:

1)  It's CUTE!
2)  It knits up fast–about 2 hours
3)  It uses 1 skein of relatively inexpensive yarn

I love it so much I've knit three of them so far, but I think this blue one is my favorite.

You'll need:  1 skein Lion Brand Wool Thick & Quick, Size 13 DPNs, Size 8 straight needles

A note about the knitting needles:  I only had 4 size 13 DPNs so I used a 16" size 13 circular needle up to the very last row of the cap.  I knit the final row on to two DPNs, but if I had to I could've probably used the circular needle to the very end.

    I don’t speak knit, and I think I’m up to 1 1/2 years on just a freakin’ SCARF, so really I’m just hoping that one of those three caps is for my head. 😉
    2 hours….*head explodes*

    SO CUTE!!! I love how the blue of the hat matches your neck tattoo too. Those would make GREAT x-mas gifts (hint, hint)

    I wear the one you made me for X-Mas all the time (when it’s cold enough of course.) My favorite winter hat. You’re such a talent! I need to work on my knitting more. I have some basic stuff down.
