The directions are asking for a 12" pom pon and two 14" pom pons. They do not come that large. Do you mean 1/4" and 1/2"? It should be written in the directions in the correct manner. It is a cute project and will make some up as samples in the craft supply store I work in to give people ideas and promote sales of the items listed that we carry in our store. Thank You.

I don't believe anyone sells 12" or 14" pompoms or pompons. You would have to make your own. I'm quite certain this should say 12" and 14" pompoms. I say this because the finished size of the basket says 3-12" x 5" and that you cut two 4-12" lengths of chenille stem for the ears. This only makes sense if you realize that it should read 3-12" x 5" and two 4-12" lengths of chenille stem. Perhaps a software glitch dropped the backslash from the fractions. By the way, pompoms, pompons and pom-pons are all the same thing. The difference in the spelling is regional. In my dictionary if you look up pompons it says "see pompoms".

I think there is a mistake in the pattern. I don't believe that 14 inch and 12 inch pompoms are needed for the muzzle and tail. Should this read 14mm and 12 mm?

Surely the pompons should be inch and " size ?

Don't you mean 12" and 14" pompoms? I cannot imagine 12" and 14" ones on a 9" bunny.
