Pompom Flower1. Print out two 3" [7.5 cm] templates (you need 2 discs). Glue to cardboard. Allow to dry, then cut out along solid and dashed lines.

3b. With A, wrap 80 times, starting on right side of B and wrapping over top of B evenly to the other side.
3c. With MC, wrap 150 times from one side of template opening to the other making sure to cover MC wraps.
4. Pull yarn between the 2 discs and tie very tightly in center.
5. Slip scissors between the 2 discs and cut the wrapped yarn all around the circle.
6. Pull the discs from the yarn. Lightly trim Contrast A, just to make even. Trim MC to be approx 1/4" [6 mm] shorter than Contrast A. Trim Contrast B very short to make it smooth, round and dense.
Chain: With MC, crochet chain, finger crochet or braid a length approx 10" [25.5 cm] long and attach to back of Pompom Flower.
Tassel: Wind MC and A around 3 fingers 10 times. Break yarn leaving a long end and thread end through a needle. Slip needle through all loops and tie tightly. Remove yarn from fingers and hold all strands together with tie at top. Wind yarn tightly around loops 1/2" [1 cm] below top. Fasten securely. Cut through rem loops and trim ends evenly.
