The BEST way to attach a pom pom to a knitted hat
Pom poms can be small or large, neutral or colorful, made of yarn, faux fur, or real fur, and they always add a little something extra to the hat. There are a variety of ways to attach a pom pom, but I have found one that beats the rest.

What to do if your pom pom doesn’t have strings
If you’re making a pom pom out of leftover yarn, you can leave two long strings attached and use a floss threader to pull the yarn through the buttonholes. Floss threaders are a cheap and practical solution that can be found at your local drug store.
Tying the strings of the pom pom to the button
Pull the pom pom threads through the center of the hat with a crochet hook. Pull the yarn strings through two of the buttonholes with a crochet hook. Tie a regular knot and pull it tight, then tie a bow to secure the pomeranian style hat.
