Today, let’s knit a Bubble Pussy Hat for the upcoming Women’s March!

I love the simple construction of the standard “classic” Pussy Hat. It is just a rectangle shape knitted on straight knitting needles with knits and purls, then folded into a very powerful and meaningful hat.

Recently, the Bubble Knit Stitch pattern has been a big hit on my channel. And if you’ve given it a try, you know it is so much fun to knit… oh, those crazy K4B drop stitches!

After I posted my Bubble Beanie Hat, I started thinking that this Bubble Stitch would be a really unique pattern to play with for a new Pussy Hat design. I was also interested in creating an ombre colored version with my yarn stash of various pink hues, so I set upon designing this free knitting pattern for you.

I really love the pretty look of this hat. I hope you are inspired to knitting up your own Bubble Pussy Hat!

The knitting pattern and instructions, along with K4B technique video, is available for free below. Keep scrolling!
