Craft question: how to make a pompom kitty?

Asked by ccrow (8020 points ) May 6th, 2012

When I was oh, 10–11 or so, someone gave me the cutest little pompom cat; its tail was a long pompom, or so I thought. But how could you make a long, vs. round, pompom? Or would you have to attach round ones in a line, and trim them to the right shape? I want to make some kitties for grandkids, so I thought I would inquire of the Flutherverse and see if anyone knows pompom secrets…

Thanks, @marinelife :-) I know how to make the pompoms, and have various sizes of the little plastic gizmos for that. The one I had didn’t have a tail like in your link, made of strands of yarn, but a long, pompom tail. That’s the part I want to figure out.

The only way I can think of to make a long pompom is to cut the yarn very long, and use a lot more yarn than usual.
