Hand Knit Bobble Hat


Hi,
I have been very enthusiastic with knitting lately and so glad I managed to finish my first bobble hat right on time when the weather is getting cold :)
I found a free pattern and tutorial from Mollie Makes - Bobble Hat and it was easy to follow. The original hat is lovely, it comes with smaller width 2x2 ribbing and continue with stockinette stitch.
As I am learning new stitches and eager to try, I added different type of stitches for the body that I found in Creative Knitting magazine autumn 2015.

Materials:
  • I used 150 yards of  Zarone - Filatura Di Crosa Italia - pure wool blend in shade 37. 
  • Circular needle 7 mm - 40 cm
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissor

Knitting process started from cast on 56 sts and join the round, continue with 2x2 ribbing, k2-p2 until the stitches measure 2.5".
After that, I did stockinette stitches 5 rounds, then added k1,p1 in one round and p1,k1 in another round. 
Back again to stockinette stitches 5 rounds and follow the same manner until the hat measure 9" from the beginning.
Then shape the crown until my hat measure 10" from the beginning, cast off, tighten the end and sew the pom-pom as Mollie did :)

That's it! Easy to make and I finished my hat in two days :)





Happy crafting and stay warm!

Hana
