Want to make your blue HatNotHate beanie stand out from the crowd? Try adding some bobbles to the mix. This hat is a quick and easy make once you get the hang of the bobble stitch. You can crank out loads of these for donation to #hatnothate or other charities, or just make one for yourself!

The yarn I used is from Hobby Lobby. It’s a standard worsted weight yarn. You could use any blue 4 weight yarn, or buy from Hat Not Hate sponsor Lion Brand.
