Attach to the hat so that color C rests on the bottom and top.

For a neater pom pom, use a pom pom maker.

Weave in ends.

The FaveHat is so cute! I love the color combination, and the two-toned pom pom is such a fun way to top it off. I might make it in black, white, and pink for a more neutral winter hat.
