I need to put something on the top of the hat I finished for my niece. When I pulled the yarn to draw the top together, the yarn knotted just enough that I couldn't get it tight enough to close the hole completely. I went ahead and finished it off and want to add something like a pompom to hide it...I've never made one before either.

OK, Don't laugh, but it took me, like, 4 tries before the preschool teacher at my son's school showed me how to make them. I felt like an IDIOT that I didn't think of this myself. I was wrapping the yarn around my 2 fingers, pulling a thread through, tying it and cutting it once. DUUUHHH!!! You're supposed to wrap the yarn around whatever you want, tie it around the middle and cut BOTH ends, so you cut twice. Does that make sense? It worked great. You do have to give it a haircut to shape it up but, what a difference!!

Good luck! PM me if I wasn't clear and I can send some pictures!!

How many times do you wrap it and how wide a "thing" did you use to wrap it around?

I wrapped it around my index and middle finger and I think I went around 50 times. Then I tied it around the middle and cut both loopy ends.

I'm so flattered that you like it so much! She is keeping it on for longer times now. She still rips it off in the car but we haven't lost it yet. I think I'm going to make her a k2 p2 ribbed cowl with the left over yarn. She can't rip that off!!

Thanks for telling how you made your hat. I made a similar hat with two squares sewn together years ago (pom poms and all) for one of my teenage daughters. I've been thinking I ought to make one for her baby girl now. I was thinking I could do the same thing you are saying, and now I know it will work. :-)

You hat is not done in garter stitch though, it is stockinette stitch. When you knit every row in the round it makes st st automatically and magically. The name of the stitch is given for the way it looks when completed, not the way it is worked.

Very nice hat. I like the colors you used, looks just right with your daughter's pullover hoodie. Too bad she is being a pill. I hope she decides to like it real soon.

Hi,
I tried to look on Ravelry, but couldn't find where you described the yarn!
Can you tell me what kind, weight or gauge it is?
Thanks,
Jen

Looks adorable on her! They are so funny about things. My DD hates hats, too, but we live in Savannah so I guess it's no big thing.

Thanks! I'm Hartleystudio on Ravelry too. but here's the link:

http://www.ravelry.com/projects/hart...ellent-new-hat

But I used Moda Dea Bamboo Wool and about a half skein of each. I'm making felted mittens from the LO's, only because it says "great for felting" on the label and I'm just curious.

I'd love to see the hat when it's done!! you can pm me if you have any questions!

Ann
