Fur Pompom Beanie Hat Knitting Pattern

How did this Fur Pompom Beanie Hat Knitting Pattern come about?  Fashion, really. From Anthropologie to Burberry, from Michael Kors to Like-Your-Lemons, all premium brands are showing you one go-to hat for the season: this (slightly slouchy) beanie hat with (faux) fur pompom, right?!

While nostalgically winking to the classic 70’s après-ski hats, today’s trendy beanies are fitted with a luxurious fur pompom.

Who doesn’t love pompoms? Particularly furry ones!  This super-cosy hat has a fluffy one to contrast with its ribbed knit fabric – perfect for keeping out those western winds.  The fold-over adds a layer over the ears, meaning they’ll stay extra snug.

So, I thought to make us all a pattern for this single most trendy beanie, so we can have one for ourselves, and for everyone on our Christmas knitting list.


Hat Size

The knitting pattern is suitable to make a hat size M-XL.  As well, in the pattern modifications are suggested to make the hat XS-M.


This hat is knit with Stylecraft Special Double Knit. It’s an inexpensive yarn that was actually remarkably good.  It’s an acrylics blend that makes the hat nice and stretchy, plus washable. Perfect for a hat, right?   If you want to choose another yarn, look for one with a DK yarn weight or 8 ply.

You will need less than 1 skein (yardage: < 322 yards  or < 294 m). I used 60g of yarn for my hat, which is only 60% of that skein.  Priced today as £1.85/skein ($2.37), making the cost of this hat a whopping $1.25!I suspect this to be a UK yarn.

US-based readers can substitute Stylecraft Special DK for Paton Astra yarn.   Get 2 skeins of Paton, as they are just 50 g each. I like the color medium-tan. Or this yarn: Cascade Sateen yarn You’ll need just 1 skein.
