I like the tassels on my new hat, but I want to try something else …
This is my hat without any pompom, tassel or anything …
In the large photo my hat is soaked in water and left to dry on a plate for a ‘beret’ look. The small photo on the right is ‘unblocked’.
And here with tassels (see previous post how to make them)
Maybe a pompom ? (see here)
With other materials ? and a different look ?
Crochet chain might work … in a pop color. Let’s try.
I used some cheap acrylic yarn but with a terrific orange color to try it out. Crochet a chain of about 3 m / 3.30 yards (or longer), break the yarn and tie off.
Wind the chain around the thumb and pinky as shown. Cut another piece of yarn or use the 2 ends of your crochet chain to tie it firmly in the middle. That’s it.
some curls ? knit ?
I used DK yarn and 4 mm / US 6 needles
