About the Crochet Bobble Hat Pattern

Crocheting hats is always such great fun because they are so quick and easy and loved by everyone!

I know that people love variety in their hats and so with this design I decided to go for a really textured crochet hat that would suit everyone. It’s really easy to make and fit as you go as it works from the top down and so also has no seams to worry about – a winner in my book.

If you love making hats using the top down, seamless construction then you might also like my Walcot Beanie pattern which has a similar style but is packed with even more texture!

If you don’t have chance to make this right now then don’t worry, just make sure to pin it for later so you don’t lose it using this image:

The Crochet Hat Tension and Sizing Options

The crochet bobble hat measures approx 58cm (22 3/4 in) in circumference so fits an average adult head nicely.

Tension (gauge) is 15 sts and 11 rounds to measure 10X10cm over pattern using a 4.5mm hook, or size needed to obtain correct tension.

Yarn for this Bobble Hat

To make this crochet hat I used Stylecraft Bambino DK yarn. It’s 100% Acrylic and has 268m per 100g.

You will need:

1 ball of Vintage Blue (7116)

A great alternative yarn if you’d like to go for luxury is Swish DK from WeCrochet. It is 100% fine super wash Merino and is one of my favourite yarns to work with. Perfect for a treat!
