I needed to make a bunch of Pompom Makers for my daughter's class that were easy for kids to use. The kids were going to make pompom "Love Bugs" for a Valentine's Day activity & the kids needed to make the "Love Bugs" all by themselves. So I created an easy, DIY Pompom Maker that anyone can use!
"These Zero Calorie donuts are EASY, FAST, & sooo yummy (with no guilt!). You can work up the regular size in less than an hour, so you will be "baking" dozens in no time!

Here are the rest of the colors Red Heart has to offer in the Boutique Treasure line.
I will describe working with this yarn in one word..............HEAVENLY!
The yarn is very loosely spun & has 2 plies of 2 different colors, changing colors throughout the entire skein. At first, I thought the looseness of the plies would lead to "splitting" as I worked crochet stitches, but I was very surprised that it didn't!
The softness of the yarn is truly like crocheting with a cloud! The yarn flowed through my fingers with such care & grace!
The colors....THE COLORS!!!!! I would love to scream to all of the world how STUNNING the colors are in this yarn. The gradation of the colors are so subtle, complimenting the softness of the yarn, yet the colors POP creating such a unique variant in each crochet piece you create! The yarn creates such a mosaic of color transformation, it is hard to NOT look at the crochet piece!
Here are some pictures of the Chevron Lace Shrug while I was creating the pattern.
So lets get on to the FREE pattern......
