Penelope’s Pom Pom Hat

I have a confession to make.

I’m certifiably obsessed with making hats.  But can you blame me?  They’re SO much fun to crochet and they make great, handmade gifts.

You really can’t go wrong.

Right now, I’m obsessed with this classic gem.  It’s a traditional style pom pom hat, and it’s giving me all the winter feels.

The pom pom is a cute addition to what is otherwise a classic beanie pattern. Feel free to leave off the pom pom for a different look, but between you and I, I think the pom pom gives it a little something extra.

This makes a great holiday gift and it’s very simple so making multiple hats will be a breeze.

Make it in a solid color if you’d like to stick to the three color combo used in the pattern.

Finishing: Fasten off, and sew in the ends.

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.
