Combat the cold, embrace cozy and turn heads with our Pom Bomb Hat! This super chunky earflap hat is knit top down and adorned with large pompoms to make you the cutest and warmest snow bunny ever this winter.

The yarn we use in this pattern, Wanderlust, is our bulkiest yarn yet - lofty, luscious and all sorts of yummy in a range of gorgeous handcarded and handspun colors. Each color combination has its own unique set of fiber colors. You’ll just need one skein per hat!

Skill Level: Intermediate Knitter

Materials: 1 skein Wanderlust or Flower Child yarn and 3 faux fur pom poms - we like these ones and used them in the sample shown here.

Needle Size: size US 36 needles - double pointed or circular needles that are long enough for the magic loop method

Size: One size fits average female head (22” in circumference)

Gauge: 4 stitches & 5.25 rows = 4 inches in stockinette

A Note about Gauge: This hat is knit in a rather tight gauge, so be sure to choose the correct size needles for your knitting style! In addition to producing the best fit, gauge is particularly important in this case because this pattern will use all 30 yards of the yarn. If you knit a swatch, you will have to reuse that yarn for the hat.
