How to make a pompom

I think pompom making isn’t too tricky, but here are some step-by-step instructions in case you are confused. This is the Susan Bates set from Purl.

1. Fit two of the circle halves together, bump side touching the flat side of the other. Wrap the halves together until they’re full with yarn–more than you think is necessary.

2. Repeat with another two halves.

3. Slide the legs of the two parts together so they lock.

4. Cut through the groove between the rings.

5. Tie the pompom together by bringing a new piece of yarn through the grooves. Knot and pull tight.

6. Gently pull apart each frame piece.

7. Use the ties to sew pompom on!
