Follow Basic Wrapping and Knotting instructions in the tutorial section.
Front - Make one motif by wrapping 9 rows. Use the ladder knotting techniques.
Back - Make one motif by wrapping 6 rows. Use the cross stitch knotting technique.
Hold wrong sides together and using the Double Butterfly Twist technique join the front and back together, when 3 sides are joined insert the cushion pad and complete the joining. If the yarn is too thick it is ok to use single Butterfly Twist.
To make the pom-pom effect, leave the first row of each edge and using a sharp pair of scissors, cut ¾ of the way through the side of each knot so the underneath strands are still intact. Using the dog brush, brush each pom-pom to make it fluffy. To watch a video of how to make pom-poms click here.
