Penelope’s Pompom Beanie crochet pattern
Penelope’s Pompom Beanie crochet pattern was designed for her with these specific colors in mind to match the colors she’s selected for her new dance troupe. Penelope is enjoying married life to it’s fullest as she and her husband run her studio and tour Germany with their dance troupe this month. She loves a lot of color and texture in her home and everywhere so when she asked me for a simple beanie to keep her warm during rehearsals, I could not avoid the stripes and pompom. Honestly, I wasn’t sure she even cared for them, but texture…? I had to add one and it had to be unique. I could have used the pompom maker, but I think character of crafting it from scratch really makes it look even more loved. Don’t you think?

Pom-Pom uses all 3 colors w/ Color B as a dominant color. I made the pompom by hand wrapping the yarn around my fingers. Starting with the white, I wrapped about 10 times. I continued to hold the white while wrapping the black around about 10 times followed by the avocado wrapping it around 20 times. I used one of the tails to tie the loops around my fingers so they made a figure 8. After securing the knot, I left the knot tails around 8” long to sew the pompom onto the hat. Using scissors, I cut the loops and remaining yarn strands. Then, I trimmed the outer strands to clean it up. You could use a pompom maker, too. Sew the pompom to the top of the hat.
