Step 11: Pom-Pom
Cut 50 6" pieces of yarn (you can use all three colors or just one).
Tie piece of yarn in the middle of the bunch.
Fold the 50 pieces of yarn in half, making 100 strings, and tie a piece of yarn at the top where it is folded. Trim and ends and tie to the top of your hat.
Your winter hat is now finished! Enjoy!
