These are made from the same yarn but I left out the garter section. I also lengthened the ribbing so that it could fold over.
Can you tell I’m really liking the pompoms on top? They’re so cheerful, plus they’re a great way to use up yarn when there isn’t enough left for another hat.
I started off making the pompoms by wrapping the yarn around a deck of cards, tying some yarn around the middle, and then trimming it down to size – it worked, but it wasn’t very efficient. So I bought this handy contraption from the LYS near work and I can’t wait to try them out!
