Bubble Beanie Hat Pattern for Knitters

Bubble Beanie Hat Pattern for Knitters

This Bubble Beanie Hat knitting pattern is my new favorite fashion accessory! My Bubble Knit Stitch Pattern is really popular right now, so I thought it would be great if I designed a hat that we can all knit up together. This knitted hat pattern is perfect if you enjoy changing yarn colors and are comfortable knitting on circular needles. This is also a great yarn stash buster. 

Find all of the necessary knitting techniques that you need to know linked below, so it is entirely possible for fairly new knitters to give this a try, too. For the free written pattern instructions and video tutorial, please continue reading to learn how to knit this pretty hat on circular needles. You may also choose to purchase my ad-free printable pdf pattern on Etsy, LoveCrafts, or Ravelry.

Favorite Yarn to Knit Up the Bubble Beanie: Caron X Pantone

This is a great yarn buster, knitted in any colors and fiber of worsted or bulky weight yarns. My favorite yarn to knit up my beanies is the Caron X Pantone collection because one skein provides the exact amount of required yarn. Their color selection is so gorgeous, too!
