The Pom Poms were what did me in...I'm gonna get me a pom pom maker! It ain't easy using Cardboard squares! The wheel one I made was worthless....so I really really need a honest to goodness pom pom maker! The reason Samuel's is different is because I was having trouble making it like the others and got frustrated so found this really neat pattern and just did it that way. I hope all four grandkids love their hats LOL!
