How to make a pom poms scarf

We all need more pom poms is our life, right? They are soft and fluffy…Easy to make, pom poms are just the perfect craft! I few weeks ago I received a package from Love Crochet with colorful yarn skeins. Yarn is a fun material to work with, even if like me you have no idea how to knit or crochet. When I saw these three soft skeins in pink shades I thought about doing something for my daughter, and what better than a scarf for this winter? So during a few days I took advantage of  each free time I had, to make pom poms.

Material you will need to make a pom poms scarf: 3 yarn skeins, a pompom maker (diameter 7 cm), and a pair of scissors.

As you have to make a lot pom poms to complete the scarf I suggest you to use a pompom maker. It will be much easier and faster than with a cardboard shape. I made 18 pompoms, 6 in each shade of pink. The thicker you wrap the yarn around the pom pom maker the fluffier will be your pom pom.

Once you are done wrapping the yarn around, close the pom pom maker. Start cutting the yarn, by pushing your scissors between the two plastic discs. It can be a little hard to cut, so you may need a sharp pair of scissors. Make sure the small yarn piece don’t fall out the pom pom maker.

Wrap a long piece of yarn between the two plastic discs and around the pompom. Tie off as tightly as possible. You can make a few extra loops and knots to make it extra secure. If needed you can trim you pompom a little. Just be careful to not cut the long piece of yarn, you will use it to put the scarf together.

Pull your pom pom out and done! Repeat to make as many pompoms as you want for your scarf.

Once all the pom poms are made, arrange them to create a nice color scheme. Align the pompoms and attach one to each other at the time to create the scarf. Just make a double (or triple) knot with the long yarn you use to attach pom poms together.

Once the scarf is made, you can cut the extra yarn lenght.

And done, enjoy your fluffy pompoms scarf! The scarf is so warm and cozy, my daughter loves it! We took a few pictures in her bedroom, the polka dots wall was just perfect!

Pin it for later!
