PomPoms and Puffs

pp

We are coming into winter here in Australia so I created these thick puff stitch hats to keep my kiddy’s heads warm during the cooler months ahead. As with all of my patterns, feel free to sell the finished product if you wish.

Hook: 5mm (US 8/H)

Yarn: 2 strands of 8 ply (I used Moda Vera Pure Wool)

Weight: Toddler – 150g | 3-6 months – 100g

Dimensions (approx.): Toddler – H 21cm x W 19cm | 3-6 months – H 17cm x W 15cm

ABBREVIATIONS:

DC – Double Crochet

HDC – Half Double Crochet

SC – Single Crochet

St(s) – Stitch(es)

Ch – chain

PUFF STITCH:

Yarn over, insert hook in designated stitch. Yarn over and pull through (three loops on hook). Pull loops upward, the same height as a double crochet stitch. Repeat three more times. Yarn over and pull through all loops on hook. Chain one to finish.

  1. So darn cute! No kiddies in this house so I will just have to make one for myself. I´m all in for some pompoms and puffs.
    Thanks a million for the pattern.

    1. Thank you! I can take credit for the photography but (unfortunately) not for the models – they are all my husbands side of the family. I was hoping the second one would have a teensy bit of me in him. But no.

  2. I am LOVING this! I have no idea how to crochet but I saw this on pintrest and now I am determined to teach myself so I can make this for my cuties! Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!

  3. I love this hat! Thank you for sharing the pattern. I would like to are this for my grand daughter, but need a size 9-12 months. Can you give me an. Idea of how to modify the pattern? Also, please don’t worry about the children looking like your husband’s side of the family- they are adorable- we found that the older mine got, the more they resembled me!!
    Thank you for the help,
    Debi

  4. I love this pattern so much! Thank you for posting it 🙂 I need to make this in a child size for my daughter. I see that you added 8 chains from infant to toddler. Maybe I should add 8 to the toddler size? I am having trouble visualizing where the starting row ends up after you put it all together. Is it going to be all around the face? is that where I should measure? Any tips would be so helpful! Thank you!

  5. I have a question about this cute hat. The puff stitch has a chain after it to finish it off. In the pattern, it says to puff stitch then ch 1. Is this an extra chain in addition to the one under instructions for the puff stitch? I’m on row 3, and when I’m skipping a stitch, there is an extra stich in there. I put the extra ch, so really I have two ch after the puff. It’s not looking right! Help! Thanks.

  6. Love this hat but I have a question… I know that row 2 should have 11 puff stitches. Should all the rows after that also have 11? For some reason mine have 12. :-/ Thanks!!

  7. Thanks for the tutorial ! Its beautiful …. May i check with you how old is your toddler? I am intending to make one for my girl who is almost 18months. She is average size. Can i use the toddler pattern without making adjustments? Thanks
