Making pom-poms for your knitting projects is quick and easy. The first thing you need to do is decide how long you want the ends of your pom-poms to be.

For this example I made a pom-pom with threads that are two inches long from the middle of the pom-pom.

A pom-pom is formed by wrapping yarn around a folded piece of cardboard. Since I knew I wanted two-inch yarn pieces, I cut a piece of cardboard four inches long (width is not important) and folded it in half lengthwise.
