Pom Pom Tutorial


I made yesterday pom poms my  main reason was for adding them to the  knitted hats i make,but make them other crafts have in mind. I quickly realized after making them how  incredibly easy it was.

This one is a small, two-finger pom-pom
(about 1″ in diameter) but you can make bigger ones
by using more fingers.

Here’s pom pom hat i made

Okay, Let’s get started!
 
 With your index and middle
fingers together and holding the end of your yarn down
with your thumb, begin wrapping the yarn around your
fingers. Be careful not to wrap too tightly!

Cut your yarn when you’ve finished wrapping;
for this pom-pom I’ve wrapped the yarn 75 times.

*Tip: For any size pom-pom, you’ll probably wrap the
yarn twice as much as you think you will need.*

Cut another piece of yarn, about 12″, and squeeze one end
through your fingers between the pom-pom and your palm.
Bring the other end of the yarn string through
your fingers at the tips.
Begin a knot, pulling as tight as you can, then slip
the pom-pom off of your fingers.
Still pulling tightly, finish off the knot.
Holding the pom-pom yarn strings, use your scissors
and cut through all the loops of the pom-pom.
 

You can also make pom poms using cardboard
I haven’t tried this does seem great craft w/ the kiddies
