To make a pom pom from any yarn, to put on your knitted hat, you’ll need:
– knitted hat
– scissors, exacto knife (optional)
On two layers of cardboard trace two concentric circles. Cut out two circle templates. Cut and coil a small ball of your yarn and start winding yarn through template. You might have to create multiple balls of yarn. Repeat until there practically is no hole left in the middle.
Cut open outside edge to reveal the cardboard inside. With a smaller piece of yarn tie around between the cardboard template and secure with a knot. Tear off cardboard. Done
You can now cut stray pieces of yarn to even out your pom pom. Just thread the yarn you used to tie off your pom pom through the top of your hat, securely knot it on the inside and you have a pom pom hat!
