Crochet Hat Travel Log

The Newsboy Cap is getting a good work out and that Swirls Cap has been a life saver. NYC is putting on the most beautiful weather – clear and cool.   

** Swirls Cap minus the peak. 

I now need to find more yarn having used te small stash I brought with me. The Purl SoHo might be my next NYC attraction to visit!! One of my favourite Blog subscriptions. 



Ready for NYC 

The plane from Oz to DC saw me redo my Swirls Cap twice!!! Changing gauge can be frustrating! Anyhow, that cap is still on the go (3rd attempt). 

In the meantime, the Amtrack from DC to NYC was a perfect 2 hour window to recreate that trusty Newsboy Cap. And that old 70’s pattern didn’t fail me! 

It’s from an archived site “Groovy Crochet” loaded with retro crochet goodness. It is so easy and is a great look, like nothing you can buy. My fave!

Now to show it off to NYC! 

Retro Pattern Parade – Day 3

Here’s a great one from 1972!

The ‘Coles Knitting Magazine – Volume 1’ with knitting and crochet patterns for the whole family! Espousing the quality of its own brand ‘Embassy’.

Would you believe there is a crochet cardigan pattern in here for the guys!

My favourite would have to be the ‘Newsboy’ cap … in bright yellow of course! The colour of the 70s was brash and bold. Love it!
