Yep, square pom poms : )

Start with a brightly coloured ball of yarn (I used neon red and pink), and begin to wrap it around all four fingers.
When you have a nice thick layer of yarn, cut the end off. Take another length of yarn and thread it around the middle, inbetween your second finger and ring finger.
Slide the whole thing off your hand, and tie the threaded yarn tightly. Cut through the loops all the way around.
Now you have a scruffy pom pom. It needs a trim, start to cut a rough square shape.
Gradually cut your pom pom into a neat square.
To make a garland, use a large needle to thread your pom poms together. Hang everywhere!
