Knit a Bubble Beanie Hat by Studio Knit with Free Pattern and Caron x Pantone yarn.

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 are in love with the bubble stitch pattern and are comfortable knitting on circular needles. I have all of the necessary knitting techniques that you need to know linked below, so it is entirely possible for those of you who are fairly new to knitting to give this a try, too. This is also a great yarn stash buster!
