love was in the air at Whip Up
, one of my favorite blogs. Kath is looking for the perfect pattern for a newsboy or beanie cap to knit or crochet
In the process of searching, she's turned up a few great free patterns
you might want to check out. There's Couvercle
from the most recent issue of Knitty
(which I discussed last week), a Garnstudio crocheted cap pattern
, and the Mikey Cap by kris knits
. Each has a slightly different shape and stitch pattern, so there may be something out there for every head.
Don't miss the comments of the post, where readers are suggesting additional great cap-style hats to knit or crochet, like Rosi G's Capitán Hat
. So far, the winners seem to be the hats in Debbie Stoller's Stitch 'n B!itch
books, but if you're looking for more good pattern suggestions, I would keep watching the replies to see what turns up.
