Pomball Pop Hat - fingering weight hat pattern that uses a mini skein and a knitted pompom to make you look fabulous

It didn’t take long after starting to play around with mini skeins for me to think of the idea that lead to my first pattern collection “Pomballs”. There was a match made in heaven, right? Right.

This hat has lots of subtle details that really please me: the way the two levels of ribbing point at the colourwork lines, the crisp contrast cast-on edge. But let’s be frank: the main bit of attention-stealing fun is that reversed colour pomball!

Pomball Pop Hat - use one mini skein and one full skein to get a great slouchy hat with a matching pompom from Imagined Landscapes

If you’ve never done a pomball before, they’re super simple – just a knitted ball lightly stuffed. But they’re also long-lasting. They’ll stand up well to use and keep coming back for more, which isn’t always true with pompoms.
