|Bobble Hat and Wristlets in Crochet World|
When I sent in my submission I had made the Bobble Hat in wine, which is one of my favorite colors. It's also one of the most popular colors for this season, but the publisher wanted me to do it in this brownish color. The yarn I chose (Bulky by Universal) can be found at your LYS or online, but you can use any bulky readily available yarn purchased from a chain store. Actually, Universal yarns are very affordable.
You can probably tell that the bulky yarn and thick Bobble st was used to keep you super warm in the shivering cold winter months. I didn't state this in my pattern but if you want to make this set for a child, just use a # 4, medium wt. yarn instead of the bulky.
