Each year I make hats and scarves for two charities:
Beth’s Hats for Hope
Red Scarf Project
This week, I started my hats.
I had been searching for new patterns and came across Pom by Caroline Hegwer.
This pattern can be found for free here.
What drew me to the pattern were the pattern photos.
This was a very quick, easy pattern and I love the finished results!
I made both an adult and child size hat using left over yarn from my Nordic Shawl.
Because this is done spiral and not with a chain 2 at the beginning of each round, my color change was quite obvious on the blue hat (picture above).
I found if I changed colors when pulling through the second loop of my FPDC rather than on the DC prior to the FPDC it made the color changes more seamless (as in the adult brown hat).
I also changed to FPSC /BPSC for the last 4-5 stitches of the rib (on the adult hat) to make a more even edge.
Hopefully, these will help keep some people warm this winter.
I’m sure I’ll be making another one for Miss ME!
