Hats ~ Questions


Not that I need another project right now, but I returned the coat for a smaller size and ended up with a green colored coat.  The above yarn matches it the best, so I stopped at JoAnn Fabrics and picked up some faux fur pom poms.  The smallest I could get was medium, but they were on sale 40% off.  

The pom pom is a tad too big for my liking, but it will work.  Regular price for one medium was $2.99.  I paid $1.79.  I feel it would less expensive to buy 12 or 24 for selling hats less expensive.  I am looking at some on Amazon that would make a 24 lot about $.70/each.

Question:  If you crochet/knit and use these faux fur pom's, where is the best place to purchase a set of them online?  

I looked up the one I purchased at JoAnn's , and it says Medium, 4 x 4 inch.  I think I would like smaller ones.

I won't start a new hat right now, but put it all in a bag, for working on when we have longer car trips, like to the cemetery etc.

Question:  What is your favorite (if you crochet) hat pattern that is free and online?

I have made a few different hats, and with different yarns, but since I had that thyme colored yarn, I think I will use it.  I read that some yarn that is part cotton and part acrylic works better, but I just don't want to buy more yarn right now.  Thoughts?

While I wait for the delivery of the floor transition piece, I am tidying up our room.  I had more yarn in there than my husband would like (he he!), but I wanted to make sure I had it accessible during the floor tear out.

I crochet hats every year to donate to the shelters and for women I like the snowy ridges pattern. I don't put pom poms on them though.
