This time I tried to use 2 small pom poms to make a little bear look. What do you think? Look at my experiment with different sizes and types of poms.

After I finished this hat I was so excited and decided to match a knit hat with same pattern infinity scarf. Small pompom on the scarf was added as a matching decoration to the hat. I hope you enjoy knitting with me and make your kids ready for the chilling season.

      Hi Michelle,
      pattern says that this hat suits babies from 6 to 18 months (circumference 47-51 cm).
      Also as you said I cast on 56 stitches and knit until row where I shape crown. It means I have always 56 stitches on my needles. If you still have any questions please ask me.
      Ann.

    I would like to know if the pom poms are fur or yarn.
