The chunky bobble beanie you’ve been waiting for is finally here! The Snowbound Bobble Beanie will delight your friends and customers with its bulky bobbles and perfect fit. The texture, warmth, and comfort of this design can’t be beat. Make one today and you’ll be hooked!
Ok, if you’ve been following along for any length of time, you know that I have an obsession with bobbles and this new design is a little bit of a guilty pleasure, in that respect.
The Snowbound Bobble Beanie was actually birthed about a year ago, as an accessory to be work with the Snowbound Cowl, but there never seemed to be the perfect time to release it, until now.
So, here it is! I’m just sad that I don’t have a photo of the bobble hat being worn because it is SO CUTE!
Sadly, due to our recent move, everything we own is in storage as we wait to build our dream home on a happy little mountaintop in Colorado. So, I wasn’t able to get my hands on the hat in time for a proper photo shoot.
No worries, though, I’ll get some photos done as soon as we get moved into our temporary living quarters in the barn…hopefully, before Christmas!
Until then, I know you’re going to love working on this one-hour crochet project for this amazing, chunky, bobbly goodness. Enjoy!

- US Terminology
- All sts are worked through both loops unless otherwise indicated.
- When a row begins with a CH1, the ch does not count as a st.
- Please read through full pattern before beginning your project.
Modified Bobble Stitch (MBS): Worked similarly to the regular bobble stitch but with 3 incomplete double crochet stitches instead of 5,
YO, insert hook into next st and pull up a loop, YO, pull through two loops (two loops remain on the hook,
YO, insert hook into the same st and pull up a loop, YO, pull through two loops (three loops remain on the hook),
YO, insert hook into the same st and pull up a loop, YO, pull through two loops (four loops remain on the hook),
YO, pull through all four loops on the hook.
Note: normally, a bobble stitch will be popped toward the back. Since this piece is worked in the round, our bobble will be popped to the front. (I know it’s unorthodox, but it works!)
Here’s a video tutorial on how to create this modified bobble stitch. https://youtu.be/tlVFYcfykuo
Half-double Crochet worked into the third loop: Worked similarly to a regular half-double crochet except that the stitch will be worked not into the front or back loop, but the third loop which sits directly below the back loop.
Here’s a video tutorial on how to hdc in the third loop: https://youtu.be/3uOOuGWZjlw
