Super Chunk Hat [knitting pattern]

I made this hat in less than an hour thanks to the super bulky yarn and my size 35 needles! The larger needles are a bit trickier to work with but I really love giant stitches they make. I plan on making this hat in several other colors to get me through the cold winter ahead!
Yarn: Loops & Threads Chunky (1 skein)

DIY Veiled Cat Ear Headband

Halloween is fast approaching and I have a bunch of costume DIYs lined up! This veiled cat headband is a chic alternative to the tradition faux fur ears. Pair it with a black dress for a sexy yet low-maintenance(!) costume.

How To Make Stripe, Rainbow & Marbled Pom Poms

Does it get any more cheerful than a pom pom? I've been experimenting with my pom pom maker and I came up with some ways to move beyond the solid color poms. These would add a fun touch to a basic hat. Plus they're a great way to make use of yarn scraps!
