Knitting, i-cord, pom-poms
10 yards of green and 10 yards of flower color for each flower/stem
US 6 (4mm) DPNs
Drinking straws (one per flower)
Pom-pom maker (There are lots of makers on the market or you can look on YouTube for videos on how to make one from cardboard.)
First make your desired number of pom-poms. I used the 2-inch size on my pom-pom tree and wrapped it about 50 times. The more you wrap, the fuller the pom and the prettier the flower. Next, with the stem yarn and the DPNs, cast on 6 stitches using the long-tail cast on. Working in i-cord, knit until the stem will just fit over both ends of the straw. (For me, that was about 7 inches with the i-cord slightly stretched.) Insert the straw into the middle of the cord. Using your cast on and bind off tails, sew the ends shut. Finally, use the tail (or a cut piece of matching yarn to your pom flower) to sew the flower to the stem. Ta-Da!
