How to make a Tiny Pom pom -
Wrap your yarn around your 2 middle finger 12 times.
With a 10 inch piece of matching yarn, slip it through the loops
 and tie securely. Trim the loops evenly.
 Use the tie to attach the pom pom onto the 3rd ch on Santa Hat.

Santa's Face is embroidered. His nose is 2 straight stitches or a French knot,
 and the Eyes, Brows and mustache are simple straight stitches.
