Love Heart Pom Poms
A love heart pompom is the perfect gift for a loved one. When making the ‘heart inside’ pompom, keep picturing the shape of a heart as you wind the yarn and you will find it easier to build up the heart shape within the pompom.
You Will Need
- DK-weight acrylic yarn in the following colours: light blue, dark blue, red
- 7cm (2 ¾ in) diameter pompom maker
Make a pompom in the usual way. Complete and remove from maker, but do not trim it into a round.
Holding yarn tails in one hand, trim pompom into a conical shape to make bottom point of heart.
Cut a V-shaped groove in centre of upper half to make the top of heart.
Trim each side into a heart shape. Start at side then work round from front to back, trimming little bits.
Tip – When trimming, to make a neater heart shape, keep brushing the yarn in different directions and trim where necessary.
