I used the pattern out of my Creative Knitting magazine July 2007 issue. I have been seeking a newsboy peak cap pattern for the past 3 months and all this time it was overlooked until the other day when I was searching for an unrelated pattern and came across this pattern in my mag. I was ever so happy!!! I used the yarn that is calls for: Caron Thick and Quick 3 balls. The pattern came out just like the picture. I made this hat for a family friend. I hope she likes it as I just finished it and have not given it to her yet. The pattern was very simple. I would suggest it to anyone who is looking for a hat style like this one. You can usually order back issues of magazines for a small fee. The pattern is a Carol International exclusive pattern but unfortunately it is not listed on the Caron website as I have just checked that out.
