Imagine just how snug you'll be in this cosy bobble hat this winter! 

The simple repeat cable pattern that fills this aran bobble hat creates a gorgeous all-over textured effect.

Fold the rib trim for a fitted hat or wear the trim unfolded and flat for a tall elongated contemporary fashion look.

Choose to make your own woolly pompom or add a faux fur pompom .... both look great!
