How to make a Pom Pom scarf

This is my favourite scarf at the moment! It doesn’t keep your neck particularly warm but it looks amazing and every time I wear it people comment and say how lovely it is.

I knitted the scarf first, using a ball of double knit wool and size 5mm (US 8) needles

Here is the pattern:

M1: Make 1 stitch by picking up the strand between the stitch on the right-hand needle and the stitch on the left-hand and placing it on the left hand needle, then knit into the back of it.

Cast on 8 stitches

Row 1: knit to end of row.

Row 2: Knit to end of row.

Row 3: Knit 1, M1, knit to end of row.

Row 4: Knit to end of row.

Row 5: Knit 1, M1, knit to end of row.

Rows 6,7 and 8: Knit to end of row.

Row 9: Knit 2 together through the back of the stitches, knit to end of row.

Row 10: Knit to end of row.

Row 11: Knit 2 together through the back of the stitches, knit to end of row.

Row 12: Knit to end of row.

Row 13: Cast off 4 stitches, knit to end of row.

Row 14: Knit 4.

Row 15: Cast on 4 stitches, knit these 4 stitches, knit to end.

Repeat rows 2 -15 until the end of the ball or until it reaches the length you like.

When you have finished the scarf, make lots of pom poms to attach to it. I used my Clover pom pom maker and made 2 different sizes of pom pom.
