Pom-Pom Scarf


Window shopping the other day we stopped at the Accessorize to get some inspiration (I love their tweed bags) for the upcoming winter. Eva saw a pom-pom scarf and knowing that I wouldn't pay for something I can make myself she got herself a promise that she'll have one.
And here it is.


She chose the colors (right then I realized how insufficient my knitting wool pallet is) to match her winter jacket, and leapt out of joy when it was finished. The most beautiful gratification for a mother.

oh my! It turned out beautiful! You know I've been wanted to do one with and for my daughter but didn't get the courageous yet. My pom poms never seem to be as I want them to be!!!

Thank you Papgena. Mine aren't perfect - some are fluffier than others because some are mohair some ordinary wool.

Maya & Eva - this is gorgeous. We are so into pompoms right now and when I was in Europe, I picked up a superduper pompom maker I have to put to work

Will you share how you connected the pompoms, stiches or some sort of running piece?

Little Treasures said...

Dear KJ,
That was my only concern. How do I end it and what to do to secure it!
First of all I strung them on a doubled woolen thread (the one of the purple pom-pom)and when I came to the end with the pom-poms I switched back and ran it through the last two ones, then made a knot there and continued in that fashion until I reached the other end. I sincerely hope that would make them stay and not loose/fall off.

I hope all of this makes any sense.

Little Treasures said...

Just an afterthought for KJ:
Don't worry, none of the knots can be seen.

So beautiful the scarf & your daughter! When I made one for my daughter it had only 2 pom poms and they both fell off! The double woolen thread is a great idea.

Oh wow, this is lovely and can be a perfect gift of winter holidays. I am sure making one or two;)

Lucky daughter!!

Eva looks lovely in her new scarf. It looks warm and cozy.

KJ@letsgoflyakite said...

Completely makes sense. Double wool sounds reasonable and should be stable. I haven't been able to get this scarf out of my mind all weekend. I must get some wool and my pompom maker out from storage.

Yes! I agree, I refuse to pay for something that I can make. Homemade means better quality and tailor made. Lovely job.

i tried to leave a comment before, but i don't think it went through, so pardon if i'm being repetitive... but i just LOVE this! and thank you for the note in the comments about how to string them together (i was going to ask you about that). i would love to try this, except i really already have waaaayyyyy too many scarves hanging around. but maybe for a christmas gift...! thanks for your great ideas! :) lisa

I am glad you like it Lisa!

Chessa said...

I don't knit or crocet. Is this something you can make without doing knitting?

Little Treasures said...

Chessa: This does not involve knitting at all. You just make pom-poms and string them on a thread. It's that simple.
