Introduction: Crocodile Stitch Crocheted Booties and News Boy Style Crocheted Cap!

  • To make the Newsboy style crochet cap; I used the pattern from Vallieskids because it is very similar to what I use. You can find more information at this site: http://vallieskids.blogspot.com

    Thank You So Much. The pattern I had was for a woman, I had to adjust it for a baby. It took me awhile to get it right. The first one I made will fit a doll.
