Crocheted newsboy or beanie cap, by DROPS Design / Garnstudio. Fair use size.Yesterday, hat 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.
