Knit a hat – bobble stitch hat knitting pattern
Round-by-round knitting instructions
To knit the hat, cast on 90 sts or multiples of 2 sts. Make your first loops loosely. You may choose any cast on methods you prefer. In the video, you see a long-tail cast on method. For that, wrap the yarn around your head loosely twice to know where to make the very first stitch/loop. Then add as many sts as necessary and stretch them from one point to point to begin knitting in the round.
