My Bumpified Hat is a riff on the tuck stitch, stacking the “bumps”, one on top of the other to create a wonderfully textured look.
This hat knits up quickly and is well suited to all skill levels. The pattern includes 4 different sizes and has notes for creating additional sizes if you wish. It looks great as a close fitting-beanie or as a taller hat with a bit of slouch. Possibilities abound, so pick your style and get creative!
For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting and knowing Granny, we are pleased to introduce her through this Designer Spotlight.
What was the inspiration behind your My Bumpified Hat pattern?
I love the look of bobbles and I wanted something that had that feel but was much simpler to knit. The word “bumpified” got its start long ago and while you won't find it in the dictionary, it is now a family classic. As a child, I was trying to explain to someone that my sister's case of the chicken pox made her look all bumpified!
Bumps that are not bobbles add great character and the possibilities for switching up the stripe sequence in this design are endless. What goals do you have when placing stripes or playing with color?
What else is on your needles for fall/winter knitting?
