I had such fun creating all the teacher’s gifts this year using Lion Brand Scarfie yarn that I decided to make a baby scarfie hat out of my remaining yarn. This is a super quick project that you can whip up in less than an hour – and that includes the time it makes to create the pom-pom! My oldest son has recently learned how to use my pom-pom maker and comes running whenever I tell him it’s time to make one. He easily created the one for this beanie as well as for Beth’s Hat and a couple of others that I haven’t had time to get posted yet. If you don’t have a pom-pom maker, you need one! I used to use cardboard for mine and this is so much easier.
