Tutorial: How to make a Pom Pom hat

from VeryCris DHGPenFriend - 29 August 2017

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 ounce

Sparkle and Sierra yarn (assorted colours) about 30gr/1 ounce

Knitting needle number 12EU/17US

Knit snitch

“Punto maglia inglese”

Rib knit 1×1, knit the wrong side and transport without knitting and moving the yarn.

Rib knit 2×2

We achieve this by knitting 2 and purling 2.

Drop-stitch to pass the rib stitch 2×2

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.
