10mm Circular (40cm Cord)
Bobble Optional Hat Kit
A perfect knit kit to create this bobble optional hat! Perfectly snug and super cosy, this gorgeous knitted hat can be worn rolled up or down, add a pompom, a stripe or a colour pop at the end! – it isn’t just the bobbles that are optional!
Knit in our beautiful merino yarn on circular needles, using basic knit & purl stitches with some shaping, this bobble optional hat is perfect for a confident beginner. You can choose from having it all one colour, or add a stripe in the middle. Or you could create a colour pop at the top to match (or contrast to) your optional bobble!
With a soft rib at the bottom of the hat, you can use this to fold up to have a closer fit, or fold down to have more of a slouchy beanie style.
For your bobble optional hat, you’ve got a number of combinations to knit it in. In the images I’m wearing:
- Mink Blush, with & without bobble, worn folded over & folded down
- Emerald with Lilac stripe with & without Lilac bobble, worn folded over & folded down
- Damson with Bubble (limited edition available only in our sub box) colour pop – worn folded over
Length: 24cm (18cm folded over) – not including bobble
Circumference: Approx 50-70cm

We source our Merino yarn from happy sheep.
Merino sheep are not native to this country so the wool itself is provided from farms around the world, however, we are very careful where we do source our fibre from. Our Merino is from South America and the South African Cape and we don’t buy from farms that mules their sheep.
The best quality of wool comes from happy sheep. If a sheep has a poor diet and general poor health its fleece will suffer. Both the quality of life for the sheep and the quality of wool it produces are hugely important to us. We have strong relationships with our suppliers to ensure that we can trust them and their practices. Merino shearers are all trained well to do it as efficiently and kindly as possible and the sheep are a lot happier once their 5kg fleeces are off!
