CatReading’s beautiful Maizey Fidra

Hats have been the most popular project category finished so far this year, with beanies/toques being the most popular style. While looking through the recently completed beanies and toques, a theme became very clear: Ravelers are making so many cute pom pom hats right now! Here are just a few of my favorites.

I love the look of a pom pom hat with a chunky cowl or scarf:

GGMadeIt’s The Kendall – Slouchy Pom Hat, handepande’s Siksak, and SmashingPuffin’s Ananas.

mkneumann’s Mütze Vorfreude, nmaris’ Boston garnitúra, and HookedHaystack’s 5 Star Beanie show how great a pom pom looks on top of a hat with a bit of texture.

Finally, the fluffy poms on these hats just made me smile! From left to right above: I-hook’s Bailey Textured Beanie, swiftyarns’ Swift Northdale, and katinkaknits’ Katie’s SnowCap.

I’m eager to make a pom pom hat for myself now – seems like just the thing to cheer me up on a cold, grey day!
