Project bobble hat.

My friend was wearing an excellent, huge bobble hat on Saturday night and now, naturellement, I want one. We're going to Berlin the day after Boxing Day and it is going to be absolutely butt-freezing cold there. So I obviously really do need one.

Since it is the season to give other people things instead of buying them for yourself, and I have some gorgeous wool that I need to use (cream with gold speckles), I am going to attempt to make one between now and the 27th December. I am fairly confident that this should be doable, since I am going to be sitting down watching Christmas films for a large percentage of that time. Plus, my mother will be here so she can make it for me.

This is the pattern to make a giantly bobbled hat like the one above (which is lovely but £50). It can't be that hard, can it?

  2. I know. I snuck a look at the label. I refuse to buy myself a hat at Christmas, though! I will knit one. I liked your coat too, not seen it before!

  4. What with the Tigers scarf, it was a very good look.

  5. Am I going to have to make a bobble hat too so I don't feel left out? (If Mozarteum fancies making a practice hat ... )

  6. This sounds like a very good way of keeping me out of the kitchen!

  7. GREAT IDEA.

    Mother - Liz has an unusually large head.

    Anyone else need a hat? It's best if she's kept busy...
