Now your pompoms can be as individual as your hats! Pomball: Zig has fun colourwork that’s simple to work. A big, bold pomball tops it off with a jaunty spirit.
Pattern has both charted and written instructions for the pomball and includes a photo tutorial for attaching the pomball. Colourwork repeat is charted only.
Pomball comes in two sizes.

All sizes but the smallest are written to be slouchy hats. The 16” / 40cm size is written to be a beanie. This is based on my experiences as a mother trying to keep hats on heads in car seats and strollers.
Needles: U.S. 6, 7 / 4, 4.5 mm needles for working in the round(magic loop OR short circular + dpns OR just dpns) or needles needed to get gauge, and U.S. 4 / 3.5mm DPNs or 2 sizes smaller than hat for pomball
Notions: darning needle, small amount of stuffing
