Pom-pom Hat

from Petalknits
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Pom-pom Hat
Pom-pom Hat
Pom-pom Hat
Pom-pom Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round, on double pointed needles
  • Basic decreases
  • Purl
  • Making pom-poms

Pattern Description:

This hat is darling for a newborn photo prop, with its unique texture, and large pom-pom! It features options for either I-cord, or braid, for those who do not feel comfortable, with I-Cords! The cord is a little shorter than some, for more practical use, though it is still recommended that it is used with supervision, or only as photo prop...

This yarn is enough to make 2-3 hats!
This hat is knit, holding 4 strands of yarn together....
This is an ideal project, to learn to knit in the round on, if you do not know how, to, already!

Thank you so much, to Keri Messina, in Arcata, CA, for the wonderful photos!!
