pom pom crazy

1.22.2013


If you are tired of the pom pom craze...this post is not for you.  But everyone else, especially those of you who have been wanting a large pom pom beanie, keep reading.  They are everywhere and some of which are crazy expensive.  But, don't despair.  I'm about to show you how to make one on the cheap.





Here we go...
If you do not knit or crochet, take the easy way out and purchase yourself an inexpensive beanie.  Target has them for as little as $5. You will also need a needle + thread, scissors, yarn, and a piece of cardboard.
Next up...make your pom pom.  The width of your cardboard will dictate how large/small your pom pom becomes.  I'm using a piece that is 4.5" wide.  You will need to cut a slit into your cardboard and run a piece of yarn thru it.  Take the yarn from your skein and start wrapping around your cardboard.  I wrapped it around about 75 times.
Use the yarn you placed in the cardboard slit to make a knot around your wrapped yarn.  Once tied, carefully slide your pom pom off the cardboard and make sure it is tightly secured.
Start cutting thru the loops and you will soon begin to see your pom pom take shape. Give the edges a trim to make it even and round. 
Sew your pom pom onto your beanie.  Now wear it!
