Snow Bunny Pom Baby Hat Knitting Pattern

The Snow Bunny Pom Hat is one of my all time favorites.  It’s a simple knit done with super bulky yarn making it soooo fast.  The warm and snuggly finished project is perfect for keeping tiny baby heads warm over the winter.  The double poms on top are just eye candy for Mom….because all moms love a super cutely dressed little one, hehe.

This pattern is also great for any beginner knitters looking to learn about working in the round.  The learn-to-knit classes I feature in my Fiber Friends Group recommend this pattern as a great way to get more comfortable with some basic techniques.

Also be sure to check out my tutorial on how to make a pom pom if you’d like to make some super big and cute poms like shown in the pic.

This free baby hat knitting pattern features Super Bulky (6) weight yarn and size 10.0mm (US15) knitting needles.
