The full guest blog post can be found at Underground Crafter. Do your pompoms fall flat, or fall apart? Learn from Emily, crochet enthusiast and Tech Editor at FiatFiberArts.com, who has finally mastered the full and firm pompom. Emily will share all her best tips and tricks with you so that you can make awesome pompoms, too. Tassels are much less cumbersome, but directions for those are included, too.
The best tip I can give you now is to keep wrapping the yarn. My previous poms fell flat because they didn’t have enough yarn in them. Secondly, use super freaking sharp scissors. This is vitally important so you don’t wear out your hands. Third, tie them tight. Super tight. This might mean using a thread different from what makes your pompom.
