Tutorial: how to make a Pom Pom hat

A pom pom hat is a must have item in a winter wardrobe. It's unisex, never goes out of fashion and suitable for all ages. So I couldn't resist making one with our new cyrcus yarn. The result is amazing!


Follow me...


Materials
Cyrcus yarn (knitted in two lines) - about 150gr/5.29 oz
Sparkle and Sierra yarn (assorted colours) about 30gr/1 oz
Knitting needle number 12EU/17US


The circumference of the hat is 55 cm / 22"


Knit snitch


"Punto maglia inglese": rib knit 1x1, knit the wrong side and transport without knitting and moving the yarn.


Rib knit 2x2: we achieve this by knitting 2 and purling 2.


Drop-stitch to pass the rib stitch 2x2: pass the slip-stitch over to the wrong side in the first knit-stitch and knit the second knit-stitch. At the end of the knitting needle you'll find all the knit-stitches and the rib-stitch will have disappeared.
