Some of you may have seen the wool that I dyed last week. It was a super fun project, but just dying the wool was only half of it! I had to turn that wool into something, didn’t I? So I introduce you to the Pink Lemonade Baby Hat design that I came up with. Below you will find the pattern, but you may also download the PDF if you would like a printable version.

Using the large clover pompom maker create a full pompom and attach it to the top of the hat.
If you used natural fibers, be sure to block your hat for a more professional look.
