caron® kindness™ pebbled texture crochet hat

We adore this soft, sherbet-colored hat, especially its lovely pebbled texture! We’ll show you how easy it is to crochet using Caron® Kindness™ yarn (for a toddler, a big kid or even you!). Then you’ll make a sweet pom-pom to top it off!

Step 3
Pom-pom: Wind your yarn around four fingers 150 times. Slide the bundle of looped yarn off of your fingers, keeping it as undisturbed as possible. Knot tightly in the middle and leave long tails (you’ll use these to attach your pom-pom to the hat). Cut the loops open at both ends and fluff your pom-pom, then trim a bit to make it smooth and round. Use the long tails to sew or tie the pom-pom securely to top of your hat.
