I love this little crochet baby hat because it has a stretchy finish to the border,
meaning it can fit for a few weeks after birth too

Crochet small Pom Poms for the hat I love finishing off the hat with Double pom poms and add them on to the booties if you crochet a pair to match the hat. 

I'm old school when making my pom-poms and use the traditional method of winding the yarn around cardboard circles

However apparently the CLOVER POM POM makers* are excellent and come in 3 sizes of pom makers SMALL- MEDIUM - LARGE - I usually buy my crochet supplies from 
VISIT The Knitting Network* - they have great deals all the time and fast delivery even though I'm in a remote part of the Country
