A Lovely Pom Pom

Happy FO Friday to all those who play along with Tami Amis and also the Fiber Arts Friday gang.  I have one finished object to show that I made in one day - a record for me, even for the easiest projects!
This is the Anthropologie Inspired Hat designed by Jessica Parsons-Taylor of the Is and Was blog.


I took this picture with my Snowflake scarf  and used the leftover Linie Iceland bulky  yarn  from my scarf project to make this hat.  Knit on size 11 needles in garter stitch it works up in no time, but the best part was making the pom pom which turned out big and fluffy and so cute!

Here is Jessica's version:


Got a chance to see the new Tudor Roses book this week.  This is the updated version of Alice Starmore's  book and there are some absolutely gorgeous patterns in there, but it is not for the faint of heart!  They have included some new patterns and made the original ones more contemporary with more pared down versions of the designs. I imagine someone will be selling kits to make these.

Have a great weekend and go 49ers!



  1. I need to check out the new Tudor Roses. Every time I want to knit something from the book I end up changing mind because I have to alter so many places to have a better fit.

  2. That hat is too cute! And a perfect match to the scarf. I am in a pom pom nightmare right now. Making them for some hats I am doing, but using the old fashioned cardboard method. How I wish I had bought a complete set of the Clover pom pom makers when I worked in a yarn shop!!! LOL! Can't imagine making one as big as on your hat.

  3. Your hat rocks! A real fashion statement in the yarn you chose.

  4. I love that hat with that adorable pom! I really like it in both your blue and the gray/cream.
