how to make chunky pompoms
Making chunky pompoms is so much fun! This is how to make them:
- – start by unclipping both arms on one (blue/aqua) side of your Clover Extra Large Pompom Maker. Wrap the yarn around both arms, placing the yarn side by side on the inside of the curve. Do 6 layers of this, cut the yarn and then clip the arms back into position.
- – unclip the arms on the other side of your Pompom Maker and do another 6 layers of yarn. Cut the yarn and the clip the arms back into position.
- – cut a length of yarn about 50cm long. Separate it into 3 stands – we’re going to use one of these as a tie to hold the pompom together. If your pompoms are a different colour to your scarf, then make the tie the same colours as your scarf.
- – using your scissors, cut along the V groove between the arms, and continue doing this around the pompom maker.
- – tie the pompom together by wrapping the tie around the V groove, pull it tight to secure the pompom and tie into a knot.
- – gently unclip one side of the pompom maker, and then do the other side. Pull the 2 white sections of the Pompom Maker apart.
- – once you’ve removed your pompom, wrap the tie yarn around again and secure with another knot.
- – put your pompom maker back together.
- – trim your pompom gradually to make it look evener.
It’s been an absolute pleasure to help you make your chunky pompoms – I hope you’ve enjoyed it.
