Pomp and Warmth:

If you're looking for a fun and easy way to warm up this winter, look no further than the Pomp Scarf, an easy Garter Stitch number worked in the wild Red Heart Pomp-a-Doodle yarn.

This yarn is basically a string with pom-poms attached; you simply knit with the strand portion and let the embellishments fall where they may, without pulling them through the needles as you work the stitches.

Materials:

  • one skein Red Heart Pomp-a-Doodle yarn (I used color 9955, Berries and Cream)
  • one pair size 9 US knitting needles
  • scissors and crochet hook

Gauge:

Gauge is difficult to measure with this yarn and is not critical. The ball band suggests 10 stitches and 12 rows per 4 inches on size 9 US needles.

Size:

Finished scarf is 4.5 inches wide and about 33 inches long.

Instructions:

  1. Cast on 3 stitches.
  2. Knit 1 row.
  3. Knit in the front and bac of the first stitch, then knit across.
  4. Repeat these 2 rows until you have 14 stitches.
  5. Knit straight until piece measures about 28 inches from cast on.
  6. Knit 2 together, knit across.
  7. Knit the next row.
  8. Repeat these 2 rows until 3 stitches remain, ending with a plain knitting row.
  9. Bind off, cut yarn, and use crochet hook to weave in ends.

Wearing the Scarf:

Because this scarf is so short, it's more of a neck warmer, wrapping snugly around the neck with very short tails hanging down. To keep the piece on, use a shawl pin to tack the sides together, or simply tuck the ends into the collar of your coat.
