Pom Pom Hats Knitting Patterns
These hat knitting patterns have something in common – whether slouchy or beanie, cable or garter stitch, they are topped off with pompoms. If you want instruction or tools to make pompoms, I’ve got links below.

A Pompom With a Hat
This aptly named pattern has an eyecatching giant pompom with a beanie attached. Easy knit in super bulky yarn. The designer reports that it just takes a couple of hours. You can knit the hat without the huge pompom (or a smaller pompom) and then it will take one skein of the recommended yarn. Designed by Molly Conroy
