Radiant Orchid Pom Hat

Pom poms are one of the hottest trends in crochet. This playful little accent is a wonderful way to add some spunk to any of your crochet patterns, such as this crocheted hat. The Radiant Orchid Pom Hat is both trendy and functional. It's an intermediate crochet pattern that is created by following an unexpected crochet stitch pattern. The faux fur pom pom is sewn on at the end, so you can always leave it off if you prefer a more basic beanie.

I am surprised to see that this hat requires a medium (4) weight worsted weight yarn. The picture does not look like that. It looks like the yarn she used is much more exotic and fancy. Can I make this using Lion Brand Landscapes? WOW, I would love it with that yarn. I might not get the same effect. The pretty raised up stitches on the top of the hat might be lost in the changes colors of the Landscapes yarn.

This is so cute. It has my grand daughters name all over it. Not only is it her favorite colors but it has a Pom Pom, which she loves. And after reading thru the directions, I can see that it just may turn out to be my favorite too. It's very easy.

First of all, Im going to assume that dcfp and dcbp mean Front Post Double Crochet and Back Post Double Crochet respectively. Im not sure why the author didnt choose to use the standardized terms. Secondly, there is no photo at the top of the article. The only photo that shows up is the tiny thumbnail in the Recently Viewed Projects area. Is there any way to fix this? I cant see any details of the hat.

I love the look of this Radiant Orchid Pom Hat! After reading the directions that are right here on this page, I am sure it will work out great! I'll be making a few of these before Christmas for last minute gifts. I'll also be making my own Pom pom, I can't see paying for one if you can make your own. They are so easy to do.. Not sure the colors yet, but the out come should be as nice as the one pictured. Thank you for sharing this beautiful free crochet pattern.

I made this hat with Caron's Simply Soft in off-white and it came out beautifully. I made my own pom pom with light sage green mohair. My very discerning daughter asked me for it!

I just finished one of these today in Peruvian Highland Bare Wool without a pom pom and I love it. People think it is knitted. It was easy to do but required some focus to keep the numbers straight. I love the way it turned out. I am starting another one tomorrow for a friend and will probably make three of four more. It is thick and soft and really quite striking. Thank you to Yarnspirations for this pattern.
