How did this Fur Pompom Beanie Hat Knitting Pattern come about? Fashion, really. From Anthropologie to Burberry, from Michael Kors to Like-Your-Lemons, all premium brands are showing you one go-to hat for the season: this (slightly slouchy) beanie hat with (faux) fur pompom, right?!
While nostalgically winking to the classic 70’s après-ski hats, today’s trendy beanies are fitted with a luxurious fur pompom.
Who doesn’t love pompoms? Particularly furry ones! This super-cosy hat has a fluffy one to contrast with its ribbed knit fabric – perfect for keeping out those western winds. The fold-over adds a layer over the ears, meaning they’ll stay extra snug.
So, I thought to make us all a pattern for this single most trendy beanie, so we can have one for ourselves, and for everyone on our Christmas knitting list.
You will need less than 1 skein (yardage: < 322 yards or < 294 m). I used 60g of yarn for my hat, which is only 60% of that skein. Priced today as £1.85/skein ($2.37), making the cost of this hat a whopping $1.25!
I suspect this to be a UK yarn.
US-based readers can substitute Stylecraft Special DK for Paton Astra yarn. Get 2 skeins of Paton, as they are just 50 g each. I like the color medium-tan. Or this yarn: Cascade Sateen yarn. You’ll need just 1 skein of Sateen.
