  • When you reach the desired amount, cut a piece of the same thread you are using to wrap the mold and tie the wool bundle right in the middle giving a strong knot;

  • For this you will need a frame frame the size you want. The bigger the frame, the more pompoms you'll be able to make at once;
  • Wrap the wool around the frame following the same steps as the other techniques;
  • With pieces of wool yarn you should divide the rolled wool into equal pieces;
