Pom-Pom Scarf Knitting Pattern

December 6, 2011 /

I made another pom-pom scarf again, this time it is a little different from the green pom-pom scarf I have made 2 years ago. Time flies so fast and it was like yesterday that I have got the first pom-pom scarf done. You may find that both tutorials slightly different since I have to create a pattern that suits the yarn I used and the person who is going to wear the scarf.

This pink pom-pom scarf is quick to knit by using the Sirdar’s baby snowball yarn I bought recently. It can be done in an hour or within 2 hours. The straight yarn between the pom-pom is shorter than the previous yarn, so this time I am going to make only 1 stitch in between pom-pom (instead of 2 for the previous pattern). This scarf is intended for my daughter, so I made it 2 bigger pom-poms dangling at both of its V-shaped ends.

In this knitting pattern, I added 2 types of knitting stitches (as shown below). If they are new to you, don’t worry, the video tutorial shown in detail how to make these 2 stitches too.

  1. Kbf – Knit in front and back of a stitch. This is an increment stitch where after you knit the 1st stitch, make another stitch at the back loop before taking out from the left needle.
  2. Ktbl – Knit through the back loop. This is to make a normal knit stitch “twisted”.

The video has a caption on it with a piece of relaxing background music. You can leave the speaker off if you prefer to watch the video quietly. Sit back and enjoy this 12 minutes knitting tutorial video to make a pom-pom scarf, including how to join the yarn in between. Try one for this cold winter.

There is a written pattern below, just in case you want to print it out to keep.

Row 4 and onwards: Ktbl for next 6 sts, turn.
Knit until almost finish the 1st ball of yarn. Join yarn by tying a dead knot at the yarn end, cut excessive yarn and burn them lightly to prevent it from unraveling.
