I have had a bad case of pom-pom hat jealousy!  Everywhere I go I seem to see chunky knitted hats with pom-poms, so was desperate to make my own.  I used Tofino Surfer pattern by tincanknits.



I used two strands of double knit yarn held together (and managed to use up all my scrap yarn left from my granny square blanket). My gauge was a bit off so I followed the child / slouch pattern (my head isn't really that small!).





I am really happy with how it turned out (hence the toothy grin!).  I shall be wearing it all winter!
