The girls asked for another hat, so mommy got to work! they fell in love with the hats and of course the pom poms!

Here are the instructions:


K: knit

P: purl

St: stitch

Sts: stitches

K2tog: knit 2 together


Mighty Stitch Super Bulky Yarn from We Crochet

Circular Needles : I tend to knit a bit lose, so I always use one size smaller. the yarn label calls for a size 15 needles


A yarn or tapestry needle : is is better if it has a big eye for chunky yarn

  • Cast on 40 stitches
  • divide stitches between needles and join at ends. It is very important that the stitches are not twisted!
  • Work on K1, P1 pattern for a total of 8 rows 
  • After the 8th row. Knit all rows. Work a total of 16 rows
