You see, I made this awesome hat:
My little Westie is such a helper!
It looks pretty rad, like something a cool skater boy would wear. (Umm, did I just say rad? I think I'm too old for that word.)
But, being a crafty girl, I felt it needed something. So, how about this pompom? I mean, I can't very well embellish a little boy's cap with a flower, can I? A pompom seemed like just the right add-on, but I'm not convinced it's necessary.
I made the mistake of asking my husband his opinion, and his answer was pretty classic.
"Guys don't have opinions on stuff like that."
Well, some help he was. I may or may not have rolled my eyes and let out a big ol' sigh. Sheesh. But I know you gals can help me out! Pompom, or plain?
I made the beanie for Junebug's cousin (who is 17 months old) using a wonderful tutorial from Girl in Air--it's her Happy Halloween Hat. It's definitely Halloween-y, but obviously with a color change, the possibilities are endless.
To make the hat a bit more manly, I opted out of the scalloped edge at the bottom of the hat and used a plain double crochet border.
So, would you add the pompom or leave it plain?
Please leave your opinion--it's most appreciated. I'll let you know which way I go based on your help!
