Abbreviations
ch - chain
sc - single crochet
st(s) - stitch(es)
sl st - slip stitch
mb - make bobble
rem - remaining

Notes
This pattern in written in American English terminology.
Rounds are joined with a slip stitch. Do not turn.
Instructions in *stars* are repeated the number of times indicated after the second *.
If you are not familiar with the magic loop, here is a good tutorial to learn the technique http://www.crochetme.com/forums/t/28917.aspx If you are still not comfortable with the technique you can chain 4 and join with a slip stitch instead.
Start the pattern using your smaller hook and then you will switch to the larger hook for the last few rounds as indicated in each individual set of instructions.


Special Stitches
mb - make bobble - Yarn over and insert hook into designated stitch. Yarn over and draw a loop through the stitch. Yarn over and draw through 2 loops on the hook. You will now have 2 loops still on your hook. *Yarn over and insert hook into same stitch. Yarn over and draw a loop through the stitch. Yarn over and draw through 2 loops on the hook* 2 times. You will now have a total of four loops on the hook. Yarn over and draw through all 4 loops. Bobble complete!

  1. Thank you so much for this pattern and for making it truly free. Although I don't currently plan on selling any of my crocheted goods, it is so nice to have the freedom to use patterns if that should ever come to be. I am currently working on a hat for one of my sisters for Christmas with a very fuzzy bulky yarn. It is coming out nicely so far and even though you can't see the bobbles quite as well due to the yarn I'm using, it feels great and I think it will be super cute! Thanks again! I will definitely be watching for more patterns. :D

  3. Am making this from some tangerine-colored tweed I found! Is just perfect for the yarn and such a cute hat! I thought you might be amused to know that FB wouldn't let me post the link to this particular page on my stitchers group because it thought the title meant something obscene. LOL Thanks for the pattern and the laugh! Stupid FB. :P

  4. LOL! Sorry about that! I guess anything that has "adult" and "bump" in the title usually is obscene!

  11. Row 7 should say 23 times instead of 20 times. Mine did not turn out so round. Straight across at the top and then down.
