Mega Meta Bobble Beanie

 

 

You guys have been loving our super massive Mega Meta Bobble Beanie, so here is the pattern! Just remember with giant yarn, keep those crochet stitches loose and leave enough tail for a pom pom. If you have a big 'ole head and need to add stitches, you might need another ball for your pom pom or for a bit of fun include some left over scrap yarns to make it really unique...   

You will need:      15mm Crochet Hook X1 200g Ball of Meta Yarn

                             DC: UK Double Crochet

                             Ch: Chain

 

Chain 6, slip stitch into the first loop to join chain into a loop.

R1: Ch1, 2DC into each stitch, 12 into total. Final stitch slip into top of first stitch of row.

R2: Ch1, DC row adding 3 stitches. 15 Stitches in total. For example every 4th Stitch 2DC. Slip Stitch the last stitch into the first stitch of the row.

 

R3: Ch1, DC row adding 3 Stitches. 18 Stitches in total.
For example every 5th Stitch, 2DC.
Slip Stitch the last stitch into the first stitch of the row.
 
R4: Ch1, DC row adding 2 Stitches. 20 Stitches in total.

***Big Head! You know who you are... **

Add an extra stitch or two taking your circumference to 21 or 22 stitches if you need to in row 4 but remember the yarn will give so don’t make it too loose. You know what they say about people with big hats....they can't see....

 

 

 

*If you are living on the wild side and want to switch colours for a two tone effect, this is a good place switch*

R5-7: DC and tie off

With your remaining Yarn make a Pom Pom bobble for the top. Remember if you are making a bigger hat with some more stitches and run short for your Pom Pom, just add in some complimentary scraps from your yarn stash. It will look awesome. I like to leave a long tail with my securing cord on the Pom Pom to ensure I've got plenty to attach to the top of the beanie.
