Bobble Cap

I'm a bobble girl in a bobble world

Well hello again. How are you doing today?

Today this Bobble Cap is making me smile. I had a blast making it and absolutely love the result. The Bobble Cap adds just the right amount of spunk and whimsy to any ol' outfit. Plus, it feels so cool. It reminds me of how it felt when I'd wear sponge curlers to bed as a kid.

 I used Cascade 220 Wool, a skein of yarn I bought shortly after learning how to crochet. I came across the pattern for this hat not too long after that and knew the green wool is what I wanted to use. I was a bit unsure about making hats then--I really didn't know how joining rows worked--so I put off making this hat until recently. I'm actually glad I waited. Who knows what this hat would have looked like if I'd made it a year ago!

If you'd like to give this hat a whirl, you can find the pattern on ravelry and here. It's a great way to while away the hours on a cold winter night.

The Bobble Cap curled up with my coat and a simple scarf I made over a year ago, when I was just starting out with crochet. I like the colors and textures in this photo and how cozy my winter woolens look together.

What's something that made you smile today?


  1. YOU made me smile! You look adorable, and that cap is great! The other thing that made me smile was the first Farmer's Market Steering Committee meeting at Bodega. Hope of Spring and Summer!

  2. You look so flippin' cute! You work that hat well.

    Something that made me smile: watching The Offspring try to do ballet in the living room after watching Barbie Nutcracker.

    The Boy will deny that this ever happened.

  3. You're looking adorable in that hat...I think you're on a roll here. Don't stop. It's fun seeing what you're creating these days.

  4. Reading this post and looking at all your wonderful creations - and the pleasure they give you. It's inspiring. And it always makes me smile.

  5. It looks great! I love the bobbles! What fun. I have stick straigh hair and I remember going to sleep with those curlers in my hair as a child too. The curls never lasted for long. My hair was so against curling! What's your next project? You are on a roll.
