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.
