Pom-Pom

If you have a Pom Pom maker, create a pomp om close to 3” in size.  Attach to the top of the hat with a blunt needle and scrap yarn.

If you do not have a pom-pom maker….find a stray piece of stiff cardboard and cut a 3” square.
Wrap yarn around the square 100 times.
Carefully slide the yarn off the square and tie a piece of scrap yarn around the middle. Tie it tight and be sure to leave a tail for sewing onto the hat.
Take your scissors and cut thru the loops of yarn on each end. Shake to fluff out. Trim long strays as necessary.
Sew onto hat with a blunt needle.
