Have you ever thought about knitting bobbles in super bulky yarn? The effect is just stunning! They look like little, knitted balls and add a dramatic, three-dimensional effect to classic stockinette stitch. The colour depth of Malabrigo’s Rasta yarn even emphasizes this effect.

The design as such was inspired by my love for extraordinary winter hats paired with my French roots. This hugely oversized tam can be styled in many different ways and looks great on almost everyone. It is knit in the round from the top down using the Magic Loop technique to easily increase to a circumference of about 43 inches/ 109cm at the largest part. The hat also makes a great last minute gift as it knits up in a single afternoon.

The following techniques are used in this pattern:

  • casting on
  • knitting in the round (the pattern is written for working on one pair of circular needles and magic loop)
  • decreasing
  • increasing
  • bobbles (instructions provided)
  • ribbing
  • binding off
