Learn how to make a super easy chained Pom Pom and Check out My Valentine's Baby Hat Pattern!

A new Baby Hat! This is my "February Baby" hat and it brings together that fast modified-granny stitch with some heart appliques and a nubby little pom pom which takes 5 minutes to make. (It's just chained). READ ON for how to make this nubby, sassy and best of all, easy chained Pom Pom.

If you'd like to learn how to make the easiest Pom Pom ever, here's what you do:

Simply chain with medium yarn and a size J hook for approximately 12 feet of chains. Tie off both ends. 
With a yarn needle or just a crochet hook, run a thread or yarn through loops approximately 3 inches apart. (see photo below)
Then simply pull on your strand, and the lengths of chain stitch will pull up and form a delightful nubby ball. Tie tightly and sew to your project!
Again, if you'd like to see the full pattern with lots of photos and detailed instructions for the hats in Preemie, Newborn, 3 month and 6 month sizes, as well as instructions for the Pom and two Heart Appliques, just check out the pattern on Etsy.

Thanks for looking and have a super crafty day!
