Hey, everyone! I’m Jessica, the founder behind The Hook Nook, and I REALLY like to make pretty things. For the last several years I’ve gone from teaching myself to crochet, to selling my makes to friends and family, to opening an Etsy shop, to pattern designing and now I am so fortunate to have worked with some of the biggest brands and companies in the fiber industry from all around the world. You can now find my own The Hook Nook brand designer crochet hooks, yarn and craft accessories at in my online shop and at various retailers!

How to use pom pom makers


Who wants to learn how to make perfect pom poms each and every time without having to use forks or cardboard??

Yuhhhhhhh. Let me show you!!!

You can find FOUR sizes of pom pom makers in my shop (THNLife Shop) in two different products that will work with ANY kind of yarn:

The Hook Nook 5" Giant Pom Pom Maker - click here

The Hook Nook 3-Pack Pom Pom Maker Set in sizes 1 1/2-inch, 2 3/16-inch, and 3 1/16-inch - click here

Let's get started!!!

Step one: Pull up one end of your pom pom maker and begin wrapping your yarn around the extended arm.

Step two: Once arm is full, place that arm closed and extend the opposite arm.

Step three: Wrap yarn around second arm until full, close arm. Trim working strand.

Step four: Cut along the indented center of the pom pom maker to create the pom’s fringe.

Step five: Using another piece of yarn, wrap around pom maker, into the indented center. Tie tightly to secure center of pom pom, leaving 6” tails (to tie onto hemp cord).

Step six: Create as many pom poms as you desire - I made eight.
