Guide step 1
Step 1.
Cut a piece of yarn to your chosen length and double it over. This is to be used for hanging the pom-pom animal and for tying the pom-pom at the end. Place this doubled-over piece of yarn on the tool as illustrated. Now wind the yarn from the ball approx. 100 times around the widest of the two forks of the tool. (NB: this tool enables you to make pom-poms in two different sizes, dictated by the narrow or wide fork).
