So my hats are done!
Yay! They came out nicely, except the poms poms are rather floppy and not nice and stiff. They look like they’re going to fall apart as they’re just sorta flaying about every which way rather than standing straight up. I’m mostly okay with this, but I’m wondering what may have happened and what I should do in the future to make a pom-pom that would stand up properly.
In other words, they look a bit more like [I]tassles[/I] than pom-poms. The cut strands equal to about 2 1/2 inches, give or take. The pom-pom for each hat appears to be well sewn in, but I am concerned some of the strands will pull out when washed or if tugged on too hard.
The yarn is Plymouth Dream Baby dk, which is relatively fine, so maybe it is just the yarn and not me.
