Kelbourne Woolen's Year of Bulky Hats: Ivy Hill (March)
Ivy Hill is bobblicious! These bobbles 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.
Ivy Hill is knit using one skein of Germantown Bulky in Jade on US 10.5 (6.5 mm) needles.
