TO MAKE UP
DO NOT PRESS. Using flat st, sew up the seam. Weave in loose ends. Make a loose looped pom pom by wrapping yarn around two fingers in a loose figure 8 formation about 8 times. Using a thinner piece of yarn tie the middle of this formation and pull tight and knot to form pom pom. Leave a long tail and use this to secure the pom pom to the top of the beanie.
