Notes

Made a couple more of these bobble hats on request from a local Mum with twins. Really love the yarn (chosen by her) and think they came out very cute indeed…

The pattern is great, am planning on using it again (probably many times!)

Changed it to knit in the round though -- dropped one stitch from the pattern and then just knit on circular needles, using the magic loop method once the decreases started for the top of the hat. Saved loads of time doing it this way compared to the last one that I knit flat. Also meant no bulky seams inside the hat either.
