In this quick how-to, we’ll show you how to make a pompom for a hat, or something else that needs an extra pouf – fx wreaths, blankets or a bookmark.
Pompoms can be used for different purposes – like hats (see fx our free knitting pattern for a winter hat right here), tassels on pillows, bookmarks and much more. Only your imagination sets the limit!
you can make pompoms from leftover yarn from the projects you’ve done – that’s why we’ve always got a little extra leftover yarn lying around everywhere 🙂 Even the smallest ball of yarn can become a pom pom.
How to make a pompom
A lot of tool can be used to make pompoms when you don’t have actual pompom makers. You can twist the yarn around two or more fingers, a wooden spoon, piece of cardboard and much more.
