Pom Pom Scarves
Pom pom scarves are so much fun to make, you can add any size pom to the ends of the scarf.
I used a large Clover pom pom maker to make mine and stitched it to each end when the scarf was finished.
You can knit in one color or in any color combination you like.
Scarf Knitting Pattern
The scarf is knit in garter stitch, worked flat (back and forth) on straight needles.
This makes it a great pattern for beginners who are learning how to knit.
The scarf size can also be adapted if you want to make it smaller or larger, just adjust the number of stitches you cast on.
