Cut two cardboard circles, 12cm (4.75in) in diameter.

Cut a 4.5cm (1.75in) hole in the centre of each to create two rings.

Hold the two rings together and wind yarn evenly through the centre hole and around the edge until the centre hole is full with the wraps. Using scissors, slip the blade between the two pieces of cardboard and carefully snip through all the loops of the wound yarn.

Thread a long length of yarn between the two card rings and around the centre of the pompom, then tie tightly in a firm knot to secure. Remove the cardboard and fluff up the pompom. Trim the pompom with scissors, if necessary, to tidy up the shape.


Pull up the tail of yarn at the top, to close up the stitches.

Fasten off securely.

Fold the hat in half, inside out, and match the two edges.

Using the tail, sew the seam on the main part of the hat and the top half of the ribbing using backstitch.

Turn right side out and stitch the lower part of the ribbing with wrong sides together, so that the seam will be on the inside when the ribbed band is turned back. Stitch the pompom firmly to the crown.
