What is the Bobble Hat Knitting Pattern?
I don’t know about you, but I love knitting hats. When the weather turns cool and I start looking for hats, I find that they seem to disappear fairly often.
Hats work up quickly, especially when using a bulky yarn and make great gifts to boot!
Another reason I love this pattern is that it uses the bobble stitch! I mean, the bobble stitch is so fun and quirky that I just can’t resist a pattern that uses it and a hat pattern that uses bobble stitch is even better!
The pattern also includes instructions for the pom pom on top!
Bobble Hat Knitting Pattern Specifics
The bobble hat knitting pattern by KnitPurlPatterns is fairly simple. It is considered intermediate level, so if you’re unsure about you’re level, maybe try practicing just the bobble stitch for a bit before starting the hat.
The bobble hat is designed for an adult with a head circumference of 21 to 23 inches. The finished size of the hat is 18 inches (or 46 centimeters) around before being stretched around the head.
The bobble hat measures approximately 10 inches (or 26 centimeters) high.
Using a bulky weight yarn makes working up the bobble hat knitting pattern very quick, which is always a plus in my book! The designer suggests using Wendy Serenity Chunky yarn, but any bulky weight yarn will do!
The bobble hat uses approximately 142 to 153 yards (or 130 to 140 meters).
Guage is relatively important so you should aim for 20 stitches and 22 rows being equal to 4 inches.
Suggested needle size is US 8 (or 5.0 mm). You may need to adjust the size based on your tension.
The pattern is written in English with both US and UK variations.
