Assembly

Use your tapestry needle to sew the brim to the hat. Make sure each stitch of the hat lines up with a row from the brim. The brim will stretch as you go.

Pom Pom

Photos are from my LOVE Beanie.

Use your large Pom Pom maker.

Firmly and evenly wind your yarn around each set of arches. After the first set of arches, close them and then wind your yarn around the second set.

Cut the yarn between each set of arches.

Use your scrap piece of yarn to tie the pom pom. I recommend you double/triple knot it.

Carefully open the arches.

Use a hot melt adhesive to place a dab of glue in the center of the pom pom. This will help prevent it from unraveling.

Fluff your pom pom and trim any long ends.

Use a tapestry needle to attach your pom pom to the top of your hat.
