How To Knit A Double Pom Pom Hat
The hat pattern is easy to make, with beginner knitters in mind.
Using knit and purl stitches, you will create ribbing, learning to knit in the round and it will also introduce you to decreasing and shaping.
This knitted hat has two large poms added and will be super cozy to wear in the cold weather.
Knitting In The Round
I made the hat using Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick yarn in fisherman and for the poms, I used the same yarn in the colour barley.
I knit this hat on size 10 mm (US 15) 16″ circular needles, so there was no seaming involved, just a few loose ends to sew in at the end.
If you are new to using circulars, once you get used to them, they soon become your favourites to work on.
The Knitting Basics
The hat uses basic knitting stitches – knit and purl, to create 2×2 ribbing for the brim of the hat.
If you are a beginner it will also introduce you to shaping through simple decreases for the crown of the hat.
The hat can be worn as a slouchy beanie or more fitted.
To make this hat you will need to know the following:
Double Pom Pom Hat
This double pom pom hat pattern is great for any beginners who are looking for an easy project, as it is perfect for practising the basic knitting stitches.
The hat size is for adults and can also be adapted if you want to make it smaller or larger, just measure the circumference of the recipients head and adjust the number of stitches you cast on.
For example, I cast on 38 stitches for an adult, but for some people, you may need to cast on 40 stitches or more (or less, for example, 36 sts if they have a small head).
Easy Hat Pattern
This hat is perfect for fall or winter days walking through the snow, wearing on the way to work or even for a day building snow people!
Wherever you want to wear this hat, it will be sure to keep you warm and toasty, protecting you from the cold winds and snow showers.
We don’t have bitterly cold temperatures here in Corfu, Greece, our winter weather is like other countries fall weather, quite mild and rainy.
I was a bit hot when posing for these photographs!
