Learn this simple technique for making a wool pom-pom with spot pattern in the centre, with Christie Leech
You might think pom-poms are only good for the ends of wooly hats. However, with a little bit of ingenuity, they can be used as an exciting and vibrant medium in textile art.
Christie Leech (@sewyeah) is an author, maker, and stylist who specialises in the creation of art with pom-poms. In this tutorial, she shares a simple method for creating a pom-pom with a spot pattern in the centre from scratch.
You will need two yarns of wool in two separate colors, one for the body of the pom-pom and one for the pattern. Then, you will need a pom-pom maker, which is basically a donut-shaped ring for you to wrap your wool round. You can easily make your own with cardboard.
