This hat came about with an intense desire to make a pom pom. I saw a pom pom and knew it needed to go onto something! And being a Canadian I figured the most appropriate thing would be a Toque. This is also a fantastic project to use up fabric scraps, comment below if you recognize this fabric ;) 

Make sure to share your project! Tag me on Facebook or Instagram @thelittleststudio 

Happy Pom Pom Making!

  • 1/2 Meter of Sweater Knit 
  • Thread
  • Coordinating Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Sewing Machine
  • Printer 
  • Printer Paper 

Using the pattern provided cut out four pieces. Two of these will be your hats lining and two will be your hats outer portion. 
For each piece fold in half with right sides together and sew along the "dart". 
Repeat this for all four pieces. 
Take two of your hat pieces and place them together right sides facing and sew along the outer edge. 
Repeat for the other two pieces so that you have two "hats". Turn one right side out and fit it inside the second hat. 
Sew along the bottom edge both layers together. Leave a 2" opening through which you can turn your hat right sides out. 
Fit your lining inside your hat and press the bottom edges to that they lay nice and flat. 
Slipstitch your opening closed with a hand sewing needle and thread. 

DIY: Make a Pom Pom! 

Take a coordinating coloured yarn and wrap it around your fingers. The number of fingers determines the width of your pom pom. I wanted mine to be nice and fluffy so I choose all! 

Wrap the yarn until you have a good amount and slip it off your hand and tie it in the middle with another piece of yarn. You want to tie it as tight as you can to keep it all secured. 

Cut all the loops and trim all your fringe. I found that trimming was the key to creating a lovely pom pom.
To attach the pom pom to your hat, you want to find the center tie and use it to stitch your needle through. Sew it to the top of your hat with a few good stitches.

Wow nice warm hats! I really want to make it, this is very interesting. Lucky to know this article, maybe I will try to make. Winter in my area is very bad, I can not do activities well. People around bought some blankets and sweaters for this winter. I have some information about this, you can visit this site to get more information.
