Yeah, ridiculous I know. This is the thing I bought (instead of just using cardboard) What I don't understand is if I cannot do it with my big ball of yarn and I'm meant to cut the yarn the size I guess I'll need so I can pass it thru the hole. Because I wouldn't like to do that, but I cannot see other way. Please enlighten me!
I don't have one so not sure quite what you mean - but does it actually say to cut the yarn? If so, surely it just means cut the amount of yarn you'll need so you can pass that whole ball through (rather than, say, a 500g one)? I don't see the problem? (that sounds a lot arsier than it's meant to btw)
Thanks. No it does not say anything, just some pics at the back of the pack. It's just that since it's the first pompom I cannot calculate the lenght of yarn and don't want to waste my pretty yarn. I'm just embarrasing myself now
I have one of these. I cut lengths of yarn and thread through a wool needle so I'm using the yarn doubled over. When it gets too short to pass through the middle I cut the yarn close to the eye of the needle and start again.
Ahhh I see! Thank you all. I'm happier now, look Flubba, I think I'll do as NotADragonOfSoup and TheWoollybacksWife said, cut some lenghts and do it double with a needdle. PolterGoose, i think i watched a video of the clover one, It looked easier indeed, but I had already bought the pony one.
I have those clever pom pom makers, my mother laughed at me when I bought them and she might have muttered something about more money than sense. I love them as does DD. She is nearly 4 and we have made lots of animals from them and made snowmen. Much, much quicker than the cardboard version.
