Classic Bubblegum Pompom Hat Crochet Pattern

What kid doesn't love bubblegum? It comes in a variety of colours not to mention it's super stretchiness that can be blown into a bubble multiple times, without ever becoming dull or boring.

So the other day while watching my little sister chew away, I thought to myself  "Why not create a hat inspired by our childhood memories of bubblegum and the fun that comes with it?".

  
What You'll Need
10.00mm Crochet Hook
150g Bulky Yarn {12ply} - I used Lincraft Veronica
Tapestry Needle

Finished Size 
Teen - Adult


Taking your 10.00mm crochet hook and bulky yarn, start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 28 Chains.
Row 1~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the fourth chain from your hook. Then crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the next 19 chains. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the next 7 chains. You should have 28 stitches now.
Row 2~ Crochet 1 Slip Stitch into every stitch across.
Row 3~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the back loop of the next 20 stitches. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the back loop of the next 7 stitches.


Row 4~ Crochet 1 Slip Stitch into every stitch across.
Row 5~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the back loop of the next 20 stitches. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the back loop of the next 7 stitches. 
Row 6 - 45~ Repeat rows 4 - 5. {Note: You can either add or take away a couple sets of rows 4 - 5, depending on your head's circumference.}
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.

Now taking the yarn and tapestry needle, thread the yarn through the ends of the rows along the edge. {Note: Be sure to thread the yarn through the ends consisting of single crochets, not the ends with half double crochets.}


Once you've threaded your needle along one side, pull the yarn tightly to gather all the edges together until the hole at the top is closed.
Now, sew the two short sides of the hat together to complete your beanie.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.
Now flip up the brim of the hat 2 inches.

Then make a Pom Pom using your bulky yarn. I used a Pompom Maker, but if you don't have one you can easily make one using THIS video tutorial. {Note: My pompom measured 4 inches x 4 inches.}
Taking your tapestry/wool needle, attach the pom pom to the very top of your hat.

 

Hope you all enjoyed this basic yet fun pattern!
If you did crochet this, please post a photo of your creation onto my Facebook Page.
I'd love to see it!
Have a lovely day crocheting,

  1. Olivia, are your patterns written in U.S. or U.K. Terms? I made one of your hats last night and it was so big, don't know what I did wrong. You have so many cute hat patterns I hope to use in the future.

  2. Quick question: should my slip stitch rows use only the front loops of the previous rows stitches since I am going to crochet into the back loops on the next row?
