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