I’m so excited to be able to announce this new knitted bobble hat pattern!
After a final test yesterday (and a quick photo-shoot) my new hat pattern is now officially HERE!
It is knitted using two colours, using slipped-stitches to let the contrast-colour “peep” through. It somehow reminds me of a blackberry, hence the name.
This is the “Blackberry Bobble Hat”.
I’m a little in love with these faux-fur bobbles, and I’ve tried it out with a pink one and also made one with a purple bobble.
You could of course try this hat without a bobble! I think it a more “masculine” palette it would look great for guys as well as gals (of course, if you boys want pink then go for it!)
If you fancy having a go at knitting this bobble hat, you can find the pattern over on my Ravelry store.
It’s knitted in the round, either on circular needles or DPNs, you could also knit “magic-loop” if you prefer.
It used two contrasting colours of “chunky” weight yarn and size 6.5mm (US 10.5) knitting needles. I used Cascade Pacific Chunky for the main colour and James C Brett Marble Chunky for the contrast. The good thing about this hat pattern though is that it doesn’t need much yarn, c.90-110m of the main colour and only c.5-15m of contrast colour. That makes it a perfect “stash-buster”!
The pattern comes in three sizes:
- Small: 8.5” (21.5cm) tall x 19” (49cm) circumference
- Medium: 9.5”(24cm) tall x 19” (49cm) circumference
- Large: 11”(28cm) tall x 20.5” (52cm) circumference
I’d recommend knitting a hat that is smaller than the circumference of your head to get a nice fit. I have a small head apparently, so I’ve gone with the size small for my own one!
If you do have a go, and you use social media platforms, please share your projects on Ravelry, Instagram or Facebook so I can see the lovely colour combinations that I’m sure you’ll all come up with!
That’s all for now, although I have so many ideas buzzing around my head at the moment, I hope to be able to share some more patterns with you very soon!
Take care everyone!
