The wind whistles as you carefully step down the steep stairs to explore the eerie, abandoned bunker. Someone said there was an adventure to be found down there.

You pull your coat closer and listen for the others, feeling comforted and snug in your deliciously-bobbly hat. There’s nothing like a cosy hat pulled low over your ears to keep you as warm as toast, ready for anything.

Bobby is a quick and simple knit, peppered with fun, easy to work bobbles and a decorative crown featuring a subtle rib that echoes the gently-fitted ribbed brim. The slightly slouchy, rounded shape is flattering and ever so warm.

Perfect for adventurous beginners and knitters wanting a super-quick, satisfying project.
