How To Make Stripe, Rainbow & Marbled Pom Poms

September 29, 2015

Does it get any more cheerful than a pom pom? I’ve been experimenting with my pom pom maker and I came up with some ways to move beyond the solid color poms. These would add a fun touch to a basic hat. Plus they’re a great way to make use of yarn scraps!

[PS- Here is my tutorial for making the perfect pom pom every time]

[To make a rainbow pom pom- wrap each color around a section of the arm. Do not overlap colors. Alternate colors on the other arm so that when the pom pom maker is closed the colors line up
[To make the marbled pom pom you’ll need 2 different weights of yarn- super bulky and sport. Wrap the super bulky around first. Then layer the sport super bulky and sport on top of each other on each arm] 
[To make a pom pom with a stripe in the middle wrap one color on each side of the arm. Add a contrasting color in the middle]
[To make a layered pom pom wrap one color around the whole arm. Wrap another color over it and finish by wrapping a 3rd color over it]

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); = id; p = ‘//’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

    Thanks so much for this. I found your tutorial on how to use the Pom Pom maker awhile ago which was a big help because I am ashamed to say I couldn't figure out how to use my pom pom maker and was doing it ALL WRONG. And now these multicolor pom pom are GREAT! Thanks
