DIY Pumpkin Pom-Pom

DIY Pumpkin Pom-Pom

Grow­ing up with a mother who is a self-proclaimed “knitaholic”(she even named her knit­ting group Knit­ters Anony­mous), I was in charge of mak­ing the pom-poms for the hats and sweaters she made all win­ter long. Pom-poms, the unof­fi­cial mas­cots of knit­ting, are still one of my favorite things to make.

This sweet lit­tle pump­kin can be made in no time at all using our 60-second pom-pom tech­nique. Turn your kitchen table into a full-fledged pump­kin patch in sec­onds flat!
