Nifty Newsboy Hat Crochet Pattern

Imagine the short about Winnie the Pooh and the blustery day. Now, before we go any further, have you got that mental image in your head? Well imagine that every single time you step outside your home you encounter such a windy day. And what's even better is the wonderful (note the sarcasm) affects it can have on naturally curly hair! In my case, this nightmare has become a daily occurrence.

Every year around July/August we get such huge gusts of wind howling around every corner, that it ends up creating quite a magical yet eery sound.
So currently I have a love-hate relationship with our brisk winter days, but I think with this Newsboy hat to keep my curls in place, I might be leaning slightly more towards love!
Do you like blustery days?

    1. You could crochet with 3 strands of DK yarn instead of 1 strand of 14ply yarn :)
