Mini Kids Bobble Top - Free Crochet Pattern

This post includes affiliate links - Please see my Privacy Policy for more info.

Hello friends! Today's Wool and Stitch Pattern is this gorgeous free Crochet bobble top, I am so happy with how this pattern turned out, i absolutely adore crochet bobbles so this top to me is like heaven!! I love the texture that it gives and how the bobbles feel when you run your hands across them. Perfect!



I used an aran weight yarn in the colour Aster by Stylecraft but can easily be substituted for your favourite worsted weight yarn in any brand. This top is very easy to make for your little ones and they will look super cute once it is on! I have done it as an 'oversized' top as i wanted plenty of room for when the little ones are moving about as they are always on the go and guess what.... I have also done this pattern with arms to make it in to a sweater which will be coming in a few days time (i will link here) when i have posted the pattern - How EXCITING!!!

Hope you enjoy this weeks free crochet pattern and come and follow Wool and Stitch on Instagram to be kept upto date with latest designs @wool_and_stitch
