Step By Step

Step 1

Gather Materials

  • Darn Good Yarn Aran Twisted Wool Yarn (or any yarn of your choice! We recommend using a weight between 4-6)
  • Scissors

Step 2

Create a loop with the yarn, so it comfortably wraps around 4 fingers

Step 3

Continue to (loosely!) wrap the yarn around your fingers, until you have created between 90 and 100 loops

Step 4

After you have finished the 90-100 loops, carefully slide them (all in one grouping) off your fingers, and cut the yarn at the end

Step 5

You will now have wrapped yarn, cut on both ends!

Step 6

Tie a knot around the center of the group of yarn

Step 7

Tie a 14 inch piece of yarn around the center of the yarn (the purple you’ll see here is some hemp we added for extra stability - this is completely optional!)

Step 8

While holding the yarn ball on its side, carefully slide the scissors around where the yarn curves

Step 9

Begin to cut!

Step 10

Follow steps 8 & 9 on the other side, to create a puffy ball!

Step 11

Trim away at longer strands to give your pom pom a fuller look

Step 12

All done! Now it’s time to read :)
