What’s better than a free hat pattern? 12 free hat patterns, of course! The Year of Bulky Hats celebrates our Germantown Bulky yarn with 12 free knitting patterns for fun hats using our favorite knitting techniques. Courtney really likes to shake things up in the spring with some wild hat designs and bold colors, and the March Hat, Ivy Hill, is no exception! The bobbles on Ivy Hill are big and bold and fun to knit.

The hat starts with a garter rib and jumps into a bobble diamond pattern - both written and charted - before decreasing in pattern for the crown. The bobbles are worked over 5 stitches, and keeping them loose and even is crucial for purling all 5 stitches together (like a modified nupp). This hat is so cheerful and fun, and the Germantown Bulky makes it knit up so fast it’ll be on your head in time for St. Paddy’s Day.
