Baby Size

The crown will measure slightly less than the size chart recommendations. Because that hat will have some stretch, it should fit a baby up to 6 months.

Pom Pom

Photos are from my LOVE Beanie.

Use your large pom pom maker.

I used Royal for my adult hat, Cherry Red for my child hat, Gold for my baby hat and Minty for my preemie hat.

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. timeless slouch boho love beanie hat free crochet pattern timeless slouch boho love beanie hat free crochet pattern

Cut the yarn between each set of arches. timeless slouch boho love beanie hat free crochet pattern

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

Carefully open the arches.timeless slouch boho love beanie hat free crochet pattern

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.timeless slouch boho love beanie hat free crochet pattern

Fluff your pom pom and trim any long ends.

Use a tapestry needle to attach your pom pom to the top of your hat.timeless slouch boho love beanie hat free crochet pattern
