pom pom

Making a good pom-pom is such a pain.

I use this method because I am lazy and do not want to cut out cardboard or buy a pom-pom maker.

I made six of varying size and quality before I finally came upon the best combination of amount of yarn and color and size. I just had to tighten the wrap to make it just right.

The hat is tall! Hopefully the cutest niece in the land will dig it.
