Free Striped Pom Pom Beanie Knitting Pattern

Sometimes the most spontaneous knitting projects are the best! I’ve had these colors stiting in my stash for a while and thought- wouldn’t it be cool if I made a pom pom out of these 3 colors? Then I realize that I needed something to put the pom pom on top of- so the striped pom pom beanie came to be!
