Materials Needed:

  • extra thick yarn (about 5 skeins for 10 pom-poms)
  • 5-inch embroidery hoop
  • upholstery thread
  • sharp scissors

Step 1

Wrap extra-thick yarn vertically around a 5-inch embroidery hoop about 15 times. Tie a knot of upholstery thread around the center of the yarn.

Step 2

Keeping wrapping yarn around the embroidery hoop—another 25 times—and tie a second knot of upholstery thread around it. Repeat another 25 times and tie a third knot of upholstery thread around the yarn.

Step 3

Cut a 12-inch piece of yarn, wrap it around the upholstery thread and tie a knot on one end so most of the yarn is free on one side. You need this to attach the pom-pom to the blanket.

Step 4

With sharp scissors, cut the yarn along the hoop. When the pom-pom is free, it will look acorn-shaped. Trim the top and bottom to make it round.

Step 5

Attach the pom-pom to the blanket by threading the long piece of yarn through an opening in the weave. Loop the yarn under the center knot of the pom-pom, through the blanket once more, then tie securely at center knot to finish.
