Pom Pom

Cut two cardboard circles about 5 inches in diameter. Using both yarns, wrap the yarn around the cardboard. You want a big and fluffy pom pom, so wrap about 200 times around the cardboard. Here is a quick video that I created a few years ago on creating pom poms.


Attach pom pom to the top of the hat. Voila!!! It is done!

    There is a difference between this pattern (pom pom striped hat) here on your website and the same one in the book sent with the round looms. On your site, it says to cut the MC after rows 1-8 and add in CC befor row 9. In the book it states to cut MC after row 9 and add in CC starting on row 10.
