1.  Newborn to 3 Months: chain 36
     Slip stitch to join being careful not to twist the chain.

4.  Change colors if desired.  Chain 1 and turn, single crochet in each stitch around.
5.  Begin the bobble pattern:
     Chain 1, single crochet in the same stitch, *triple crochet in the next stitch, single
     crochet in the next stitch, repeat from * around, slip stitch to join in the first single
     crochet of the row.
6.  Chain 3, *single crochet in the next stitch, triple crochet in the next stitch, repeat from
    * around, slip stitch to join in the top stitch of the chain 3 at the beginning of the row.
    (You will be making a triple crochet in the space between
    the triple crochet stitches of the previous row, and a single crochet in the top of the
    triple crochet stitch of the previous row.  This is illustrated in the above video link.)
7.  Repeat steps 5 and 6 until the work, including the band, measures 4 inches.
      Newborn to 3 Months: 4 inches
     8.  Decrease for the top of the hat: 
     Chain 1, single crochet in each stitch around, slip stitch to join.
     Chain 1, begin working in a spiral, skipping every 3rd stitch until the top of the hat is
     closed up.  Fasten off.  Weave the yarn ends into the finished work, closing up any
     opening in the top of the hat if necessary.


HOW TO MAKE A POM POM:
 
1.  Wind yarn around your fingers.
     The more you wind the yarn, the fatter the
      pom-pom. (For a smaller pom pom, wind
      around 2 or 3 fingers. For a larger pompom,
      wind around a 4 or 5 inch piece of cardboard.)
2.  Slide the bundle off, and tie tightly in the

     center with a length of yarn.
3.  Cut open the loops on the ends.
4.  Fluff out, and trim the ends into a rounded
     shape.
