Pattern Notes

  • This pattern starts with a magic circle (also known as a magic ring or adjustable ring). If you are a beginner crocheter, check out my magic circle tutorial
  • Leave a long yarn tail for weaving in when you make your magic circle.
  • The beginning of each round starts with a chain. This chain does not count as your first stitch. 
  • At the end of each round, you’ll join your yarn with a slip stitch (sl st) to the first stitch made in that round. 
  • Repeat instructions between asterisks (*) for the remainder of the round.
  • You are crocheting in the round.
  • Hat is worked from the top down.
  • Color changes are made when you join in the round.
  • Hat ribbing is worked separately in rows and sewn to the hat.

Pom Pom for Hat

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.
