To make the pom-pom, follow these simple steps using the Clover 1 3/8 inch pom-pom maker or any item about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in width, such as a fork, a piece of cardboard, or your two fingers:
1. Wrap Yarn:
– Wind yarn around the chosen item (fork, cardboard, or fingers) until it reaches about 1 inch in thickness.
2. Secure Middle:
– Slide the wound yarn off the item and tie a piece of yarn tightly around the middle. Leave the ends long; these will be used to attach the pom-pom to the hat.
3. Cut Loops:
– Cut all the loops on both sides of the tied yarn, effectively creating a bundle of loose yarn strands.
– Trim the pom-pom to the desired size and shape. The more yarn you wrap initially, the denser the pom-pom will be.
5. Attach to Hat:
– Attach the pom-pom to the top of the hat, securing it in place using the long ends of yarn tied around the middle.
6. Hanger (Optional):
– Lastly, if desired, attach a piece of yarn as a hanger. Pull a piece about 6-8 inches long, tie a knot, and trim the end. You can pull the knot to the inside of the hat for a neat finish.
Finish off and neatly weave in any loose ends.
