Bubbles beanie is a cosy beanie knitted in a chunky British wool. It features bubbles formed using a simple cable pattern. The bubbles rise from the rib and disappear on the crown. Bubbles is quick to knit, so it’s perfect for gift knitting!
Bubbles beanie is knitted in the round from the rib up. The hat starts with a tubular cast-on giving a lovely edge to the rib. The rib merges into the cable pattern, which in turn merges into the decreases on the crown.
The pattern for Bubbles beanie is available to purchase as a digital pdf download from the Being Knitterly Ravelry Pattern store, or here as a printed booklet, together with a free digital copy.

This pattern is available in two versions: the standard one for those who knit right-handed and an alternative one written for those who knit left-handed. If you purchase the printed pattern or kit and would like the pattern for knitting left-handed, please say so in your order notes at check out.
Most of you knit right-handed, that is, your stitches move from the left to right needle as you knit.
Some of you knit left-handed, that is, your stitches move from the right to left needle as you knit.
If you are a left-handed knitter who knits right-handed, that is your stitches move from the left to right needle, you should use the pattern for knitting right-handed.
