Yep, square pom poms ย : )

Start with a brightly coloured ball of yarn (I used neon red and pink), and begin to wrap it around all four fingers.

Slide the whole thing off your hand, and tie the threaded yarn tightly. Cut through the loops all the way around.

Now you have a scruffy pom pom. It needs a trim, start to cut a rough square shape.

Gradually cut your pom pom into a neat square.

    So cute I’ve tried these and they don’t puff for some reason. Any tips?

    • Hi Emma – you could try using more yarn. The more you use the thicker and puffier they will be. I also gently patted the pom poms into shape as I was going to make sure I didn’t lose the square-ness. Hope that helps!!!

    how much yarn does it take to make one pom like this? Did you use that whole skein of red yarn your holding in the first picture for one pom, or more than one?

    • Hey April! This was quite a while ago so I can’t quite remember, but I don’t think it was a whole skein for each pom pom. Maybe half? They are pretty small.
