When we want to add a pom-pom to a hat, scarf, pillow or any other project, we can either make that pom-pom in a solid colour, or we can make it using several colours for more fun. A colourful pom-pom will add a frill to a project knitted in one colour, and it will match perfectly a project knitted in a colour pattern.
In this tutorial, we’ll see how we can make a multicoloured pom-pom without a pom-pom maker or other sophisticated tools. All you need is your hands, yarn in different colours and a pair of scissors.
With this limited number of supplies, we’ll easily make colourful pom-poms of two kinds – one with all colours blended together and one with patches of different colours.
This type of pom-pom is called a “lazy pom-pom” because we make it quickly without any special tools or additional preparation.
Let’s see how we can make two kinds of multicoloiured pom-poms step-by-step.
Use the long tails to attach the pom-pom to a hat or any other garment. You can do it either with a crochet hook or with a wool needle. The second part of this tutorial explains both ways.
Feel free to use yarn scraps to make lots of colourful lazy pom-poms and arrange them in garlands, wreaths or wall hangings.
