hey wow...it has been a long time since i did a friday DIY. if you have followed me for a while you know i love the free people brand, however, cannot afford the Free People brand.
therefore, i am left to make the things i like myself.
today i bring you the Free People inspired Double Pom Pom Beanie.
how cute is that!? it looks like little fluffy ears. Click here for the original
double pom poms across the sky...err sorry getting carried away.
Supplies: Pom Pom makers (I prefer Clover brand found here or at local hobby stores), yarn, scissors, and a premade beanie (not pictured)
You can use any beanie you have laying around or you can make one (patterns for crochet and knitted).
Step 1 - Make your pom poms with a yarn that matches your beanie...or not. I didnt photograph this step because depending on your pom pom maker it will be different....just follow the directions on the package. i used the XL for mine - size is up to you
Step 2 - When you tie off your pom poms be sure to leave your tails long (about 6-8inches)
Step 3 - poke your tails through the top of the beanie...you may need to use a crochet hook or yarn needle to get it through the knit. my beanie was pretty loosely knit so i could just pick the tails through with my fingers. your tails should now be on the inside of the beanie.
the spacing is up to you!
Step 4 - Tie your tails together or secure to the beanie in some way. if you knot them together they are only pulling on each other, not the knit of your beanie. In the picture below you can see i tied the tails into a bow.....that way i can take them off whenever i dont want them there.
