Baby Hooded Sweater Instructions (Pom pom)

I made my pom pom using this old wooden spatula. 

I just wrapped around until desired fluff was achieved. You may add to increase fluff to your satisfaction. Use a long piece of yarn to tie off and make sure to leave yarn allowance for attaching the pom pom to the hood. Trim edges to desired shape


Attach pom pom at the corner of your Baby crochet Hooded Sweater.


Use tapestry needle to weave all ends.
