Knitting Pattern: Bobble Hat

I received a set of the new Knitpicks Short tipped Interchangeable circular needles for christmas and wanted to test them out pronto!

I tried a couple patterns before deciding I'd just make my own. It's my first design I've posted on . I only used 1 circular needle in this pattern, but you can use 4 dpns or 2 circulars,as long as you join it.

I call it the Stripey Bobble Hat!
