Baker’s boy hat knitting pattern



After much searching for a hat pattern on the Internet, to no avail, I developed the baker’s boy hat knitting pattern. The baker’s boy cap knitting pattern is an easy knitted alternative to the crochet hats being worn this season.

The baker boy hat is inspired by designs such as the newsboy cap or twiggy style hat – made up in sections, however in this baker’s boy hat pattern all the sections are knitted in one go, rather than sewn together afterwards. The baker boy cap can have either a hard or soft peak, visor, or brim, according to the preference of the maker.

The baker boy hat pattern was conceived in London, developed in South Bohemia and completed in St Ives, Cornwall, and is now being knitted internationally.

Knit your own baker boy hat in an evening. The baker boy cap is a simple pattern knit on two needles (not circular), using only basic knit, purl, increase and decrease stitches.

The baker boy hat pattern is clear and straight forward, and includes photos and a stitch diagram for you to follow as you knit your baker boy hat.

You will need:

  • 100g chunky wool (150 metres)
  • 5.5mm knitting needles
  • 6 hours (for an experienced knitter)

This really is the perfect way to use up wool from a favourite (but unfashionable) old jumper. Or search charity shops for an inexpensive luxurious cashmere or mohair jumpers to recycle into your own unique work.

Please send us a photo of your finished baker boy hat if you would like to have it included in our baker boy hat gallery.
