These cute Christmas ornaments can be made with just a few yarn scraps in assorted colours. Traditional red, green and white is always a classic choice. But for a modern twist why not use a range of bright colours like we have here. This free crochet ornament pattern is easy to make, even for beginners.

You will need:

• 3.5mm hook
• 8 ply cotton – in colours of your choice
• Wool needle
• sharp scissors

How to make a Mini Pom Pom

How to make a mini pom pom mypoppet.com.au

1. Cut a 20 cm length of yarn and lay it across your open hand and over your first two fingers.

2. From your ball of yarn start wrapping over the yarn laying over your fingers aprox 6 wraps wide, keep wrapping yarn around
about 40 times.

3. Holding end in place, cut yarn. Grab the yarn that’s laying over your fingers and holding everything together, carefully slide off your fingers. Tie a double knot as tight as you can.

4. Now it’s about to get messy! Holding the long thread out of the way and using sharp scissors cut about 1 cm down from the top.

Keep trimming and fluffing until you have a cute little tiny pom pom.
