Bobble Stitch Hat





I gotta be honest, right up front. I came across a Red Heart pattern for a hat that used the bobble stitch, working back and forth along the band up to the crown of the hat. When finished, the hat was then stitched closed down the back. I much rather prefer to make hats starting with a magic circle at the crown and working it around down to the band. But I also want to give credit where credit is due.


I got the inspiration from Red Heart's pattern, made a few modifications so that it can be worked around from a magic circle, and am now happy to share this Bobble Stitch Hat pattern with you. Enjoy!


Definitions & Abbreviations:

sc = single crochet

slip st = slip stitch

st = stitch

bbst = bobble stitch

To make a bobble stitch, *yarn over and insert hook into stitch. Yarn over and pull through the stitch. Yarn over again and pull through 2 loops on the hook. Repeat from * 4 more times. You should have 6 loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through 5 loops, yarn over and pull through the last 2 loops on the hook.
