With cold weather on its way, you’re probably crocheting up a storm. To keep those little ones you love warm this season, add the Baby Pom Pom Hat to your list of projects. This baby hat is the perfect gift to keep tiny ears warm and protected this season.
The Pom Pom Hat is created using the detailed puff stitch and the pattern will teach you to create decorative poms to finish this project.
As a perfect pair to these special stitches, this bonnet is made using Cascade Superwash Merino Yarn. It’s ideal for projects that will be exposed to outdoor conditions. Cascade Superwash Merino is made from 100% wool AND it’s machine washable, which makes this a very durable, easy-to-clean, and versatile yarn.
You can get access to this special yarn and the step by step digital pattern in the new kit I put together for this baby bonnet. The kit will have every skein you need to create this sweet baby hat, and it’s a purchase you can feel good about.
All of our yarn is collected through MakerDrop. And by purchasing through MakerDrop, you’re supporting a small business who is passionate about crochet. I love supporting other makers, and it’s great to be a part of such a supportive community.
