This pattern was designed with a bobble pattern to resemble blueberries that you would find in a muffin. I wanted something with texture that was also unisex, so you could make it for anyone in your family. There is also a bit of an openness to the pattern as you go, because of how the blueberries cause a bit of a stretch. This means that it can be used quite well as a fall or spring hat, or on those winter days where you don’t need your arctic gear, but definitely need your ears covered.
This pattern does have quite a bit of stretch, and can be forgiving. I made the size large for my husband, who has a 23” head, but it also fits me quite well, and I have a 21” head. This will give flexibility with gifts, if you aren’t quite sure of someones size.
