The Bubble Knit Beanie

Three beanie hat patterns in less than a week! Hmmm I think I'm addicted to fall/winter fashion accessories. If you haven't check out the other two beanie patterns I posted so far this week please check out my Lara Knit Beanie and my Animal Print Beanie
So what do we have today you may be asking? Well my dear friends this beanie hat has definitely found a snug place in my heart. I am absolutely and positively in love with this little creation of mine. I call it the Bubble Knit Beanie..




The "bubble" texture of this hat feels amazing. Knit with super chunky yarn this little dream is like a bubble of squishiness!

Materials needed:

7 mm circular needle
Super Bulky yarn
Stitch marker
Yarn needle.

Note:

knit5b ( knit 5 below): Slip the next stitch off the left needle and drop it down 4 rows . (There Will be 4 strands of yarn above the stitch.) Put right needle into the front of the free stitch and UNDER the 4 loose strands. Knit from this position, catching the loose strands behind the stitch. Give yarn a gentle pull before knitting the next stitch to take up the extra slack.
If this stitch is confusing there are plenty of tutorials on Youtube.



Pattern:

Cast on 50 stitches.

Begin with a knit 1, purl 1 rib. Continue in this pattern until you have 9 rows of ribbing completed.

Round 10: Knit to the end of the row increasing 3 stitches evenly across the round.

Round 11-14: Knit to end of round.

Round 15: *Knit 3, knit5b. Repeat from * to last stitch, knit 1.

Round 16-20: Knit to end of round.

Round 21: Knit 1, *knit5b, knit 3. Repeat from * to end of the round

Round 22-26: Knit to the end of the round.

Rounds 15-26 set your pattern so just repeat this rows until you have 4 rows of bubbles.

Next round: *Knit 3, knit5b. Repeat from * to last stitch, knit 1.

Next 2 rounds: Knit to end.

Round 1 of decreasing: Knit 2 together all the way around to the end. Knit last stitch.

Round 2 of decreasing: Repeat last round.

Round 3 of decreasing: Knit 2 together all the way around.

Cut your yarn leaving a long tail. Thread the end of your yarn through a yarn needle and weave through the remaining stitches. Secure with a stitch or two in the inside of your beanie hat.
Add a pom pom of your choice if desired.
