Bumble is a fun, easy to knit hat with a twist: it’s knit completely flat! The chunky ribbed section is knit first, then stitches are picked up around the edges and series of decreases are worked in garter stitch to form the shape. Lastly, a three-needle bind-off brings it all together. The result is a super squishy, nicely fitted, and visually interesting hat. This is a great pattern for beginners who aren’t ready to knit in the round yet as well as more advanced knitters who are looking for something different.
