Welcome to Day One of Christmas Gifts in July! I am starting off with the easiest of all this week’s patterns (although the others aren’t hard by any means), this Ribbed Crochet Pom-Pom Scarf. This crochet scarf is a cute, cozy pattern you can work on while watching TV or visiting with friends because you won’t need to do any counting. The texture of this crochet scarf is simple but heavenly!
I absolute love how this scarf worked out. Normally I like to have a tighter gauge with medium weight yarn, but I decided to go up a few hook sizes to see how I liked it. I went with a 7mm hook. The result is a crochet pom-pom scarf with an incredibly squishy fabric and a beautiful drape. Pair the hook size with a squishy soft yarn (I used Red Heart Soft) and you will have your new favorite scarf!

Crochet Ribbed Scarf:
1. Work a hdc foundation that is 65″ long. Turn.
2. – 18. Ch 1. Hdc in same st. Working in BLO, Hdc in each remaining st across, leaving last st unworked. Hdc in last st, going through both loops. Turn.
Crochet Pom-Pom Scarf Construction:
First, make two large yarn pom-poms using your corresponding yarn. You can use a pom-pom maker or use this tutorial (be sure to read the tutorial for extra help in sewing the pom-poms to the scarf. The same principle applies here).
Keep the tails long on the pom-poms. Thread one tail onto your darning needle and sew a running stitch along one end of the crochet scarf.
Cinch it very tight. Then, making sure it stays cinched, sew up and down through the pom-pom (similar to attaching the pom-pom to a hat), catching the cinched end of the scarf. Continuing going up and down until the pom-pom is sewn to the scarf securely .
Tie off all ends.
So, what do you think of this squishy texture? I bet this crochet pom-pom scarf will be your new favorite scarf (so you better make two).
