Apart from being sick and having my head explode at the announcement of a Boba Fett movie in 2016 (OMG!!! I hope it’s not screwed up because if it is, I will cry blood) I didn’t get much done last week. I was supposed to finish a tutorial for a dress I made, but It takes such a freakishly long time to write that I will just have to postpone it to next week. It’s good though, so the wait will be worth it!
I used old scrap wool yarn. This pot holder will have to be heat resistant so I guess using either wool or cotton yarn works best. A larger but still pointy needle that you can stitch yarn with is also needed.
For each pom pom I cut a yarn string measuring around 120 cm in length.
Take the string and attach the needle at one end. Wrap the other end like you would wind a yarn ball.
Leave about 40 cm of the string unwrapped. Sew into the ball until you only have 5-10 cm left of the string.
Use the remaining string to attach the yarn balls to each other.
Attach them evenly and a few yarn pom poms later, a geometric shape should start to take form.
And there you have it, a new pot holder!
