How much do i LOVE Clover Pom Pom Makers?

...... Very much, they are awesome.

Here are some examples of bobbles i have made with them. The pink ones are 65mm and the multi coloured one is 85mm. These are the perfect hat size pom poms, and they both come together in the pack. I am tempted however to purchase the smaller size ones also, as i could add them as decoration to my hats.

They are super easy to use.

Simply wind the yarn around 2 of the legs

continue to wind the yarn around the other 2 legs

Wind the yarn until its approximately flush with the guide on the end of the feet.

Cut the yarn, close up the pom pom maker tighly and cut around the rim.

Cut a length of yarn and secure the pom pom by threading the yarn through the space between the blue disks.

Gently, pull the two sides apart.

Finally, trim any odd ends from the pom pom .
As you can see from this picture, the pom pom maker is ver neet and requires little trimming to make a perfectly round pom pom.

I bought the two pom pom makers from ebay for £6.25 including postage. I think they are well worth the cost.
