Tutorial: How To Make A Yarn Pom Pom

Tutorial:  How to Make a Yarn Pom Pom

 


Adding a yarn pom pom is a great way to add a little fun to just about any crochet project.  I especially love to add them to winter hats.  Yarn pom poms are quick and simple to make!

All you need is some yarn in your desired colors, your hand and a pair of scissors!

The pom pom I made in the example below only uses one color but you can make a multicolored pom pom by switching colors after every few wraps. 



Step 1:  Start by taking your yarn and wrapping it around a hard surface.  You can use your hand, a small piece of cardboard or any other small surface. 





Step 2:  Continue wrapping the yarn.  The more times you wrap the yarn, the thicker your pom pom will be.  As a point of reference, I wrapped the yarn around my hand 30 times for this particular pom pom.




Step 3:  Slip the wrapped yarn off of your hand or surface and using a separate piece of yarn, tie a knot around the center. 






 Step 4:  Slip scissors through the loops on each end of the pom pom and cut across to create the fringe.




Step 5:  Fluff the yarn to form the pom pom.
