The Pom Pon Bear consists of several wool balls (of various sizes) joined together
appropriately to make the bear. So first lets see how to make the balls. The
basic procedure to make the balls is the same.
First take four strands of the wool, each of approx 12" in length.
keep the 4 strands along the length of the rod.
Now using the wool ball
wind it over the 4 strands and rod
After completing a single
layer repeat the process over and over again
For a normal size Pom Pon:
Body will have 12-14 windings.
Legs will have 09- 10 windings.
Hands will have 08 windings.
Head will have 10 windings.
Ears will have 06 windings.
Snout will have 06 windings.
Tail will have 06 winding.
After completing the required windings, slide off the wool. Now using the
4 strands tie a knot which brings the two ends of the windings together.
6. Now cut off the folded edges neatly. After this, roll the piece
between your palms and make it into a small ball. Similarly make the rest
of the balls.
7. Join the head and
the body using the 2 strands, by tying a knot.
8. Next Join the
hands, legs, ears and snout accordingly using needle and wool.
9. Stick the eyes and
nose to complete the Bear. You can also tie a bow around its neck.
To make a bigger bear, you can increase the windings accordingly.
