How to make a pompom with your hands

Winter crochet projects simply aren’t complete without a pompom. No pompom maker? Make a pompom with your hands instead.

Sometimes, a new winter hat just needs a pompom to finish it off. Me being the (sort of) disorganized crocheter that I am, I can rarely find a pompom maker in my mess of a crochet cabinet. Even so, I prefer huge pompoms, and those usually aren’t big enough. For this project, you need a ball of yarn, your hand, scissors, and a yarn needle. That’s it!

Note: make sure when wrapping the yarn around your fingers to keep the yarn fairly loose, so you don’t cut off circulation!

As you can see, it’s a pretty simple process. Wrap the yarn around your fingers until it’s about an inch thick. Cut the yarn and thread it onto a yarn needle, then feed the needle through your middle and ring fingers. Take the yarn up over the pompom and repeat threading through the fingers – make it tight!

Slip the yarn off your fingers: it should look like a little bow. Snip the edges open, and trim to perfection. Voila! One giant puffy pompom in no time flat.
