Bring on the POM poms
Poms poms. I’ve been admiring their frivolity and making lots of them. With the purchase of a Clover pom pom maker and the inspiration of how others are using them I created pom pom seed pods of some imaginary plant in soft dull grey cotton. I used them in a woven table runner in jute. They seem quite impressed with themselves perched on the woven landscape. I also like the potential swing and sway of pom pom embellishment but in this weave I’ve locked them down into position.
The Clover tool is quite different to the more traditional way of making pom poms with two circle templates. It makes it easier to wind the yarn around as it doesn’t need a needle to do it. Here are some festive pom pom garland ideas using the Clover tool.
