|How to make a pom pom|
Finish in 2 ways:
1. B & T tightly to finish with a plait and pom pom (click on the image to the left and see what this looks like). Make the plait with the seven colours and sew into a pom pom made with the seven colours.
2. To finish as illustrated to the left with an I-Cord.
K1, K2 tog to end.
Work a 6 row I-Cord on these 5 stitches.
K2, K1, K2 - repeat until 2 stitches remain. B & T tightly.
Sew up the row ends for both hats. To save sewing in lots of ends for each colour - you may
want to cheat and tie the colours together - no one can see the inside of your hat on a bottle!!
