How to make a pompom

Tags: pompom,

In this DROPS video we show how you can make a pompom.

Cut out 2 circular cardboard pieces with the desired diameter. Cut a big hole in the middle. Place the 2 pieces against each other and wind the yarn round. The more yarn, the denser the pompon. Cut the threads between the 2 pieces, be careful not to pull out the threads! Use a thread to tighten round the middle of the threads between the 2 pieces. Pull tight and tie hard. If the pompon is a little uneven, adjust the lengths of the yarn ends.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns where you can use this technique by clicking on the pictures below.

The video above can be used in the following patterns

I am worried about the pom pom coming apart when it is in the wash or if the item is being used a lot? Is there a suggested technique that can be used to make sure the pom pom doesn't come apart when the scarf or other clothing item is being worn? Thank you.

Dear Mrs Hunderbol, if the pompon is tight enough, it shouldn't come apart. Please feel free to contact your store they will have even more tips for you. Happy knitting!

Det heter pompong på norsk, det er lettere å finne hvis dere har korrekt ord ;) (Jf. Bokmålsordboka)

Da habt Ihr aber das Wichtigste komplett vergessen, denn so ist der Pompon nur halb fertig u d nur halb schön. Am Schluss, wenn der Pompon in Form,geschnitten ist, sollte man ihn ca. 15 Zentimeter in einen heißen Wasserdampf halten. Vielleicht so drei bis fünf Minuten. Dann wird der Pompon erst richtig fertig und gut.

Goeie dag, ik heb onlangs een heel eenvoudige methode ontdekt om pomponnen te maken : je hebt alleen de hand van een vrijwilliger nodig. Leg een draad van ongeveer 20 cm tussen zijn middelvinger en ringvinger. Wind dan een draad van 5 à 6 m rond de vingers van de hand (zonder duim). Dan neem je de kleine draad vast en knoop die zo strak mogelijk rond de omwikkelende draad. Haal de vingers er voorzichtig uit. Knip dan de draden langs weerszijden door en maak de pompon mooi rond.
