Step 1: Hold the end of the yarn on your palm using your thumb. With your other hand, start wrapping the yarn around your fingers (you can use 2, 3 or 4 fingers depending on the size of pom-pom you want).
Step 2: Wrap the yarn around your fingers for a minimum of 40 times (the more wraps, the more dense your pom-pom will be). Don’t wrap too tightly. You will need to slip the bundle of yarn off your hand eventually.
Step 3: Cut another piece of yarn about afoot long.Turn your hand with the yarn bundle palm down and thread the foot long piece of yarn through your index and middle finger.
Step 4: Turn your palm up and tie a tight knot around the bundle. Make sure it’s in the middle of the bundle.Slip the tied bundle off your hand
Step 5: Tighten the knot even more and turn bundle over and tie a knot on the other side
Step 6: Cut all the loops in the middle, all the way aroud the bundle. But DON’T cut the two ends of the foot long piece of yarn (you will use those to fasten the pom-pom onto whatever you want.
Step 7: Cut around the pom-pom to make all the yarn pieces uniform in length, rub the pom-pom between your hands to fluff it up
Sew the short ends of the hat and top up, add a pompom and you’re done!
