Free Crochet newsboy Hat Pattern {Newborn-3 months}

Newborn-3 months Baby Newsboy FREE Crochet Pattern with Brim:
This newsboy crochet cap is very easy to complete and looks great, I love how the Brim is pretty stiff by doing the Half Double Crochet and using 2 strands of yarn.  Finished hat is 16 inches around (0-3 months) I have included how to make this one size bigger, the hat will still hold its shape.
This also makes an adorable photoprop for a little boy too
