How to Make Perfect Pom Poms- a step by step tutorial

How to Make Perfect Pom Poms

A quick glance at my Knitting Patterns will tell you I’m a big lover of Pom Poms! I’ve always used the cardboard disc method to make them but it was kind of a pain. The cardboard bends and I sometimes ended up with crooked or flimsy pom poms. I purchased this Clover Pom Pom Maker a few weeks ago and it’s been a game changer! The instruction diagram on the package isn’t helpful at all, so I wanted to post a tutorial clearly illustrating the steps. Follow this and you’ll get perfect poms every time!

    I am buying this immediately! I hate winding my yarn through flimsy cardboard, and this seems much, must easier!

    I have the clover Pom Pom makers and I agree with you, the directions are not clear. Took me a bit to figure it out on my own. My mother in law bought me all three sizes, so now I’m well equipment for all sizes of Pom poms
