It’s everything you love about the original Mega Pom Beanie, just in smaller sizes. And they’re so darn cute for babies!
Maker after maker asks how to modify the Mega Pom Beanie for little ones. I’ve even made a few sets (like this one and this one) and gifted them to friends over the years. I just can’t get enough of the texture, wide brim, and slouch of this classic crochet beanie.
I finally took the time to write out my notes and convert this fun and versatile pattern into 6 sizes: Newborn, 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 1-3 years, 3-10 years, and Teen/Adult.
The Teen/Adult size Mega Pom Beanie was originally designed with Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice and took about 165 yards. The updated pattern includes multiple colors of Rowan Pure Wool Worsted and takes just about the same amount of yarn, minus the amount in the original pom pom.
Just about any worsted weight yarn will do for your Mega Pom Beanie. A few fun ones I suggest are Lion Brand Mandala Tweed, Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Tweed, and Red Heart With Love.
The Mega Pom Beanie is a basic hat pattern that takes well to fun customization. Play around with stripes to make a santa hat, one with candy corn colors for Halloween, or even a pretty pink and red one for Valentine’s Day. The possibilities are endless – you’ll get addicted to this pattern just like I am.
Where do you get the leather tags?
