Now that you know how to make a detachable pom pom… (Click here for the blog post if you missed it.) You may want to make a beanie hat to go with it. My aim was to buy three balls of The Women’s Institute Soft & Chunky Acrylic/Merino Yarn and make a hat and a cowl. I have designed both and still have a ball left; so I’m thinking about designing some simple chunky mitts to match. If you go to Hobbycraft, the yarn is very often on a 3 for 2 offer so I wanted to showcase some simple patterns that you can make quickly with three skeins or effectively £8 (When the 3 for 2 offer is on) Hobbycraft is a UK based craft store; so if you’re in another country, any other chunky yarn will work. either 100g or 110m.
If you need to make a last minute Christmas present, this hat can be crocheted in under an hour… and is a brilliant pattern for a beginner crocheter.
