Happy March! I have a fun pattern for ya'll today! We went camping recently and I found this yarn in our trailer and wanted to crochet something with it. As I was making it, I remembered starting a similar pattern years ago and scrapping it. It's the case of too many projects, not enough time.
I'm glad I finished this one. Mostly because I wanted to record a video with some new gear I bought. Similar to yarn making me happy, camera gear makes me happy too :) I'm upgrading my set-up and was excited to try some things. So bear with me while I test a few equipment out....

I found these affordable and pretty Faux Fur Pom Poms on Amazon that I used in my tutorial. It saves me so much time but if you want to make your own, I've provided links for 2 tutorials.
Pom Pom (optional)
Using an extra-large pom pom maker (or desired size), make pom pom by wrapping yarn around pom maker until full or as thick as you’d like and attach to beanie.
