I posted last week about my love of bobbles, and my mom shared this adorbs photo of my sister and I wearing bobble hats as kids.
How adorbs is Susan’s expression?! I love it. I also remember these hats quite distinctly! Mine was, I think, two shades of pink. Fittingly, I recently finished this bulky yarn bobble hat for Blythe in pink yarn!
This hat is so quick to knit up, it feels almost ridiculous. You barely get started and voila! You have a finished item ready to be worn! Of course you can play with the size of bobble like always. Bulky yarn can make up some truly luscious bobbles!
It’s maybe a little bit late for starting holiday gift projects (or maybe not! Could be a New Year’s gift, in which case there’s plenty of time!), but this pattern is a quick hat anytime you want to knit one!
This hat is warm and cozy and in three sizes for adults (the small might work for some older kids, too).
It has a fun, angular decrease on the crown that makes it so much more interesting than any ol’ hat.
The monochrome stripes formed by the alternating purl and knit sections give the hat an elegant look that will suit just about anyone!
Ding ding ding (not really) went my knitting needles making this hat that I totally love. I designed it to have a really luxurious-feeling ribbed brim, which can be folded up if you wish or worn as is if you prefer it that way. For some reason a generous brim really adds a feeling of quality to a hat!
In the same spirit, I also designed it to include a cable braid pattern that feels deluxe. It’s not complicated and the pattern can easily be memorized, but the result looks more complicated than that, I think.
Who doesn’t need a power cable? I need multiple power cables to make it through the day (ridic, maybe, but true) and here is one more that I definitely need to make it through the winter.
My goal for this hat was to make something warm and stylish but still relatively simple. I think I was successful!
There are four cable sections around this hat, with luscious cozy purls in between. The cables begin right at the brim, which I think lends it an elegant look. You can change up your look by wearing it with a cable at your forehead, or one on either side.
Best of all, the yarn used to make this hat is so cozy and warm and perfect for the winter weather we know is coming.
It’s finally done! After several prototypes, I finally got the Ramona sweater pattern down to a shape and design that really works.
Ribbed sweaters are perfect for the coming fall season – I wish I had one like this for myself, actually (not sure we’ll see the day when I have the patience to knit one). The ribs increase gradually over the whole yoke of the sweater, so it fits like a dream and doesn’t call too much attention. This minimalist design does not include a distinct collar or cuffs, so it feels modern, clean, and simple.
Ramona is another in the series of pullover sweaters I’ve designed for Blythe – they pull over the body, since Blythe’s head is far too large. The rib gives the sweater a nice flexibility, which makes it work well layered and with whatever choice of skirt or pants you choose.
Many of my Blythe sweater patterns are oversized – I just think it’s an attractive look for Blythe and can help her appear more like a miniature person (yes, still with a gigantic head, but closer). However, in the interest of creating a diverse wardrobe with lots of options, I want to create some patterns for pieces that are more fitted, too.
How’s that for fitted? This sweater is worn reverse-cardigan style and fastens in the back with a tiny snap (you could alternatively use sew-on velcro if you so desire). It’s a body-con top that is able to be tucked in if desired.
How cute is this little guy? You can get the pattern to make him for only $6! Wee Wonderfuls has some other great deals on ubercute patterns, too, so get on over and get ready to make some holiday gifts.
