SECURE THE END Take the end of the yarn and tuck it between your two fingers to keep it from unraveling. Remember not to let go as you start wrapping.
START WRAPPING Then wrap the yarn around 3 or 4 fingers leaving the thumb free. The number of fingers you wrap around will determine the size of the finished pom pom.
REMOVE THE YARN When you are happy with the volume, take the yarn carefully off your hand.
TIE THE CENTER Take a 6 inch (15cm) piece of wool and wrap it around the center of the DIY pom poms a couple of times.Pull very tight and tie a knot. Cut the ends of the center string.
SHAPE AND CUT Fluff up your DIY pom poms and trim the ends to shape.
