Black & White Bobble Crochet Beanie

August 22, 2017

This Black & White Bobble Beanie is one of my favorite designs. I love the color contrast and the fun bobble stitches littered throughout the beanie.

I made this one for my 7 year old daughter, but because there is so much slouch in the design it will fit a wide range of sizes. If you want to make the circumference larger, you can make the starting chain any multiple of 5 + 2 chains.

This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download HERE in my Etsy shop.

BEANIE

**Ch at the beginning of each round does not count as stitch, start each row in the same stitch as beginning chain**

In Soft White ch 52

Row 1: hdc in 2nd ch from the hook, hdc in each stitch across, join to top of first hdc with sl st to form a loop (50 hdc)

NOTE: I like to crochet my first row before joining to make a loop, this helps prevent the chain from twisting, I use the beginning tail for sewing the space closed

Round 2: ch 2, hdc in 3rd loop in same stitch and across, join to the top of first hdc with sl st (50 hdc in 3rd loop)

Round 3: ch 2, hdc in 3rd loop in same stitch and across, join to the top of first hdc with sl st (50 hdc in 3rd loop)

Round 4: ch 2, hdc in 3rd loop in same stitch and across, join to the top of first hdc with sl st (50 hdc in 3rd loop)

Round 5: ch 3, dc in 3rd loop in same stitch and across, join to the top of first dc with sl st (50 dc in 3rd loop)

Round 6: ch 3, *dc in 4 stitches, change to black in last step in 4th dc, bobble, change to white and pull white through all 6 loops* repeat from * to * across, join to top of first dc with sl st (40 dc, 10 bobbles)

Tip: I carried the black yarn behind the white and fastened off after each row to minimize the ends to weave in.

 

Round 7: ch 3, dc in each stitch around, join to the top of first dc with sl st (50 dc)

Round 8: ch 3, dc in first 2 stitches, bobble in black (following previous tutorial), *change to white, dc in next 4 stitches, change to black and bobble stitch in the next* repeat from * to * 8 more times, change to white, dc in last 2 stitches, join to top of first dc with sl st (40 dc, 10 bobbles)

Round 9: repeat round 7

Round 10: repeat round 6

Round 11: repeat round 7

Round 12: repeat round 8

Round 13: repeat round 7

Round 14: repeat round 6

Round 15: repeat round 7

Round 15: repeat round 8

Round 16: ch 3, *dc in next 8 stitches, dc2tog* repeat from * to * around, join to top of first dc with sl st (45 dc)

Round 17: ch 3, *dc in next 7 stitches, dc2tog* repeat from * to * around, join to top of first dc with sl st (40 dc)

Round 18: ch 3, *dc in next 6 stitches, dc2tog* repeat from * to * around, join to top of first dc with sl st (35 dc)

Fasten off, leave a long tail for sewing

Using the long tail, sew the top closed. Fasten off, weave in all the ends.

Make a pom pom in black and sew to the top. Weave in all the ends.
