The Bobblehead hat features a bright and quirky all-over bobble pattern with coordinating pompom that will add a bit of whimsy to even the most conservative of outfits.

This pattern includes two sizes suitable for average size adult heads. The small-medium is a close-fitting toque, great for anyone who prefers a form fitting hat that will actually cover your ears. The medium-large fits with a stylish slouch, great on short or long hair.

Utilizing two colours of FibraNatura INCA, this hat knits up super quick on 7.00mm needles. The gauge is measured from the body of the hat at the centre of the bobbled colour work pattern. You will have to be comfortable with stranded knitting in order to make this pattern a success - keep your floats even and neat to ensure a great fit.

You will need 2 colours of FibraNatura INCA, or similar bulky weight yarn. One skein for the main colour and one skein for the contrast colour. You will have nice amount remaining from your contrasting colour and it’s suggested that you use that extra yarn to create the puffiest pompom possible to attach to the top. In the samples an additional colour has been introduced to create a coordinating pompom.
