Chocolate Orange Pompom Hats

So, despite it being November, I am having to prepare for Christmas. As part of little stocking gifts, I have accumulated some delicious Terry’s Chocolate Oranges. Inspired by various blog posts and Ravelry, I designed my own covers for the little oranges: cute little pompom hats!

These little beauties are great for using up scrap yarn and can be made within about 20-30mins.
