  • US – I, 5.5mm hook
  • 200-240 yds total worsted weight yarn in 1 to 8 colors (I Love Cotton in Purple, Dark Denim, Sage, and Ivory shown, directions written for 4 colors as shown)

This hat utilizes the bobble stitch, aka dc5tog, in a unique way. As shown in this video tutorial, usually the bobble is made from the wrong side of the fabric, and worked so that it pops out on the right side. This pattern is made in rounds, and the bobble is made from the right side of the fabric, so be sure to push the bobble towards you as you work the following single crochet stitch.
