A free project from the new craftastic Pompomania!
As promised in our last post, the lovely folks at Quadrille and craft author Christine Leech have kindly provided a wonderful sneak-peak at one of my favourite projects from the book: the beautiful blush-kissed pear!
This pompom pear is unbelievably tactile. It looks best when trimmed hard, so do not be afraid to go at it with the scissors.
YOU WILL NEED
- DK-weight acrylic yarn in the following colours: pomegranate, shrimp, meadow, lime, walnut;
– 7cm (2 ¾ in) and 9cm (3 ½ in) diameter pompom makers;
– Glue gun;
STEP ONE: For lower part, using a 9cm (3 ½ in) maker, wind 100 wraps of pomegranate in a wedge, leaving one quarter of maker empty at both RHE and LHE.
STEP 7: For top, using a 7cm (2 ¾ in) maker, wind 40 wraps of shrimp, meadow and lime across three quarters.
This is so easy and such a knockout addition to any fruit bowl!
