First, take a toilet paper roll and fold it a bit for easier measuring.

Take a triangle and measure off 1.8 cm/ 0.7 inch wide strips.

Prepare as many paper strips as the number of hats you want to make. You’ll get five strips from one paper roll :)

Now, take your yarn scraps and using a triangle, measure off 35 cm/14 inch long parts.

You can use every color you like, but remember that some yarns are easier to work with than the others. I advise you to choose the one that is not too thick and fluffy.

Fold piece of yarn in half and place it inside the strip. Keep the ends and a loop on the other sides of the strip.

Reeve the ends of yarn into the loop…

…and pull them tight to make a knot on a strip.

This is how your hat should look like after weaving some part of yarn.

Yay! You’ve just finished the most time-consuming part :) The layer of yarn on the paper strip should be thick enough to cover it completely.

Now, divide the ends in two parts and reeve them separately to the other side of the strip.

Pull the yarn and dispose it evenly inside the strip.

Take a piece of yarn and tie it around the rest of threads to form the pom-pom part.

Trim the yarn to get round and fluffy pom. Don’t trim the thread you used for tying if you want to hang your hat.

    I was going to snip off the fingertips of gloves–now I don’t have to. I can make my own little caps. Thanks!

    These hats are so cute and would look darling on a Christmas tree in the maternity ward of a hospital. Also great for a baby shower! Thank you for sharing!

    Greetings and merry xmas/happy new year from Melbourne, Australia. Thankyou for sharing a beautifully quick and easy craft. I’m just wondering how many strands of the 35cm yarn you actually use as the video looks like there’s more used compared to the photo above.
