This is what I made yesterday, a blue hat with crochet and knitting combined. It started out as a crocheted scarf, but I realized I would need more yarn, plus I have so many scarves. A scarf is such a great quick project but I think I can finally admit I may actually have enough scarves. So the rectangle got joined into a tube, gathered at the top, and with stitches picked up at the bottom with circular needles. I find the easiest way to make a pom pom is just to wrap the yarn around a tape cassette and then cut the loops and tie it in the middle. Then you can just trim bits off until it's nice and round.
