This chunky hygge women’s bobble hat would make a great gift to yourself or someone else this winter!
The knitted beanie hat is a relatively easy pattern and can introduce you to working with two yarns in the upper tier.
This hat is made from thick chunky yarn, which will keep you warm and toasty in the colder weather.
The techniques you will need to know are knit, purl, k2tog, and stranded knitting in the round, as well as knitting on either circular needles or double pointed needles.
The hat pattern is easy to follow, knitting in the round on 16″ circular needles, you could knit this hat on DPN’s if it is your preference.
This easy hat knitting pattern is great for any beginners who are learning how to knit, as it is a great project for learning the basic knitting stitches.
If you are a beginner it will also introduce you to shaping through simple decreases.
The hat size can also be adapted if you want to make it smaller or larger, just measure the circumference of the recipients head and adjust the number of stitches you cast on.
