First make a wood frame larger than the finished size of the pillow top. Next mark the frame at carefully measured intervals but I don't remember if you want an even or odd number of marks. Drive long nails into this marks deep enough to stay, but leave sticking out.

The yarn is woven back and forth across these but I don't remember the pattern; I presume you do all one direction and then at the corner, go around the nail there and go in the other direction keeping the tension the SAME on the yarn and do this until there are at lease three yarns around each nail.


It can't be too tight or you will never be able to to slip the yarn off the nails.

When you have finished weaving the yarn, next make the pompoms by tying three or four (again not sure of the number) pieces of short yarn around the yarn on the frame where the yarns cross. Fluff out and trim, and then carefully remove from the frame. Sorry I can't be more exact.
