    Jackaroe, you can delete this completely by going to your “studio” and clicking on the title of this project. You will see “edit” right beside the title at the top. Click on that to edit scan down for removal information. I hope this helps as I see you continue to get frustrating messages. I worked for Burdastyle a few years ago and was able to remove items from that side without any issue so I’m not sure why they are not able to do so completely. Kind of strange and little bit of a headache for you. Good luck!

    Any chance you would consider reposting this pattern? It is so cute, and I was hoping to make one for—wait for it—my 50th high school reunion!

      Dear PrairieWoman, I am very sorry but am not considering reposting the pattern. It is an old and confusing pattern. Have a look on the internet, you’ll find a lot of information for drafting your own. Good luck! (And my apologies for not replying sooner).

    Where is the pattern? Have been looking for a newsboy cap pattern for ages. Glad to find this site, but cannot find the PATTERN. Where is it? Thanks. :) later edit: Just found the post by jackaroe dated 1/20/15. This is ridiculous, to have a project on this site that purports to be a “HOW TO” with PATTERN, and then discover they deleted the pattern but left the project page hanging out here? PLEASE! And what do you mean “outdated”? Many people obviously wear and like the newsboy cap style. Why not leave the whole page WITH PATTERN available on the site, so folks can use and enjoy it?

    Very disgruntled… :-(

      Dear newsboy,
      The pattern was an old amateur version of mine (= outdated) and I wanted to remove it from the website. I feel that I have to justify myself for this decision over and over again (and that makes me feel very disgruntled too).
      I contacted Burdastyle to remove the whole ‘how to’ and pattern, but due to some technical issue, only the pattern was deleted.
      I do believe that you are capable and smart enough to draft your own newsboy hat. It is not that difficult and there’s plenty of documentation on the internet. Good luck.

    Where can I get the actual pattern for this? PDF is available but no pattern.

      Dear Badlymade, this pattern is outdated and I asked the folks at Burdastyle to delete the pattern. I’m very sorry! (They weren’t able to delete the whole project though apparently, some kind of technical issue…)

    The PDF pattern is incomplete for me. No brim and no front piece.

    Just made a Sarah Hat. I used woven cotton, in dark green with tan polka dots. I love it! I can’t wait to make another in a different color. Thanks for the pattern!

    Thank you so much for this!! I have been wanting a pattern like this forever, but haven’t found a good one and I don’t have the guts to make one myself and have it not turn out! You did a beautiful job and I can’t wait to get started… Once I finish the towering stack of projects I have to finish for everyone else! ;-)

      I had been looking for one forever too, that’s why I decided to give it a try :-) It’s not too hard luckily!

    Thanks for the hat pattern. I have two DGDs who will be my “lab rats” for resizing. At ages 6 & 4, I suspect the pattern may be a tad large. Do you think that reducing the seam allowances for each panel is the way to go? Cordially, Nehmah-who likes your choice of buttons.

      Thanks! You’re already on the way :-) My first attempt was too small and would have been a good size for a child. So I would indeed cut off the entire seam allowance of the six panels. The strips shouldn’t be narrower, only shorter I think. And perhaps reducing the pattern piece for the brim? I wouldn’t reduce that too much though, makes it harder to sew. Good luck!

      And I’m just thinking: sewing an elastic in the back could be another option. This is exactly what I’m planning to do with the hat in the picture because it’s a little too big for my boyfriends stepsister (12), whose newyear’s present it’s going to be..
