Bulky Pom Pom Beanie Pattern

IMG_20151216_113525 I admit I wasn't loving pom poms going into this project, but they are growing on me. This beanie is super easy to knit and uses one full skein of my bulky yarn. If you want to make it slouchy you'll need 2 skeins.

These beanies work up quickly. I think they work well with hand dyed yarn. I made myself one in Fangs at Midnight, then had to make another because my daughter kept stealing it.
