Pom-Pom Tutorial:

Leaving a long tail, wrap yarn around your hand.  Wrap a lot, probably a lot more than you think you need, to create a full pom-pom.  
Leaving another long tail, cut yarn and carefully slide off of your hand.
Use your 2 long tails to tie around the middle, tightly.
Use a small scissors to snip all of the loops.

Use 1 off the long tails to sew onto the hat.  Trim the other long tail to the same size as the rest of the pom-pom.
