Crochet Lulu Pom Pom Scarf

Let's face it. Kids things are cute. They're miniature and the kiddos look good modeling anything! Anyone who knows me knows that I wanted a lot of kids and at least one of each. I love my 3 boys but I still crave for a baby girl! Anyway, I never get tired of designing for little girls.... A part of my little inner-girly self jumps out to play ;)

Today was Crazy Hair Day at preschool so I tied the boys hair. My youngest doesn't have much hair so he just got "batman ears" (aka pigtails). My other son had what looked like palm trees as a Mohawk ha-ha!

Anyway back to the scarf... I wanted a simple textured scarf and to add a little fun, I've added pom poms to the ends of the scarf.

This scarf is made using half double crochets into the back loops (which creates the ribbing texture). It's a fairly quick project since it's made for a child. Of course, it's easily adjustable for the girly girl in us adults too!

Oops! I forgot to check my white balance settings & the "Jade" color looks more blue!


Worsted Wegith Yarn | I used Red Heart Super Saver in Jade & Orchid

6mm Crochet Hook
Yarn Needle
Pom Pom Maker (Large) | You can use a cardboard or your hands but I would recomend a pom maker

ch - Chain

st(s) - Stitch(es)
hdc - Half Double Crochet

PATTERN: 4" x 46" not including Poms (but so easy to adjust!)

Row 1: Leaving a 6" tail, Ch17, 1 hdc into the 3rd ch from the hook & into each ch st across. 

Adjustments: You can chain as many chains as you want the width of the scarf. Chaining 17 is approx 4" for my tension.

Row 2: Ch2 & turn. 1hdc into same st and into each st across into the back loops only

Repeat Row 2 until scarf measures approx 40 inches 

Adjustments: Measure as you go, make it any length you want!

Fasten off leaving a 6" tail.

Using a yarn needle, weave ends through every other stitch and back into the beginning and cinch up. Do this on the other end as well.

Pom Pom

Using a large pom pom maker, make pom by wrapping yarn around pom pom maker until it's nice and full. You can wrap less rounds if you want a looser pom. 

Cut the middle using a sharp pair of scissors (or you'll be fighting with the thickness of the pom).

Once pom is cut, run a long piece of yarn through the middle and tie, wrap it around the other end and tie 2 more knots.

 Attach it to the ends of the scarf. Tie a few knots and then run the ends back into the pom and trim it on the other side. Trim as necessary to get nice round Poms. 

I love how it turned out. Easy Stitches & cute poms!
