Make 4 pom poms by winding daffodil yarn around 2 fingers approximately 120 times. Slide yarn off fingers and tightly double knot another piece of yarn around the center. Leaving the long ends free, cut the ends of the yarn and fluff until the desired shape is achieved. Trim any uneven pieces, and use the long tails to attach to the cuff of the slipper by pulling the daffodil tails through to the backside of the cuff, tying in 2 double knots, and pulling back through to be blended into the pom pom.
