Pom Pom Beanie

by Ashley Weeks Cart

As some of you may know, Kimmy and I are phasing out Green Eyed Monster. Thus, I’ll be migrating all of my tutorials and DIYs to this space. I’ll now be sharing all of my scattered interests here. Fun for you! If you aren’t interested in my crafty side, forgo these posts. And if you’re not interested in maternity musings and the onslaught of photos of my family and daily life, forgo those. Easy peasy!

First up, DIY Pom Pom Beanie. This was one of a number of projects I tackled over the holiday break. Definitely the quickest, providing instant gratification. Totes my kind of craft.

I saw a cashmere beanie with a authentic fur pom pom at a cute boutique in Lenox, MA for $98. Rather than splurge on that item, I opted to scoop up this cashmere Target beanie (on sale for $13 – score!) and use my XL Pom Pom maker and a ball of black fur roving to make up a pom for the hat. With a large tapestry needle and some black embroidery thread, I stitched the pom on the cap, and POM POM! I now have a very similar look, for a fraction of the price.
