I think this is my favorite hat I have made so far. The love the contrast between the red and white. And who can resist pom-poms? I made this based on a hat that I saw on Pinterest.
I used the basic hat pattern used on the Hello Kitty hats, but added pom-poms in place of the braids (can you tell I'm loving pom-poms right now?). For the applique I used the Star Snowflake pattern. I modified the pattern by using worsted weight yarn and a size G hook.
