Scarf with Pom Poms for the Knifty Knitter Rectangle Loom

Knifty Knitter Scarf with Pom Poms

Skill level: Beginner

Provo Craft Tools

Other Supplies

    Knifty Knitter Pom Pom Maker
  • crochet hook
  • 2 skeins (A) Red Heart Light and Lofty Pheasant
  • 1 skein (B) Lion Brand Chunky USA Yukon Gold
  • 1 skein (C) Lion Brand Chunky USA Desert Sand
NOTE: The sample measures 64" x 8", not including the pom-poms.

Step 1: Using the main color of yarn, wrap 24 of the pegs on the purple loom. Wrap in the figure 8 pattern for the first row. Continue wrapping in the fashion stitch, or just go back and forth around the pegs.

Step 2: Knit 9 rows and then change the yarn to the B color. Knit 3 rows. When attaching the new
color of yarn, tie the two colors together in a square knot, leaving tails of about 4".

Step 3: Change the yarn to the C color and knit 3 rows.

Step 4: Change back to the B color yarn and knit 3 rows.

Step 5: Change back to the A color of yarn and knit the middle of the scarf (114 rows, or the length that you would like).

Step 6: Reverse the pattern from the beginning end with the B and C colors. Finish with the A color yarn.

Step 7: Finish by adding 3 ½" wide pom-poms, and single crochet yarn string to attach the pom-poms to the ends of the scarf.

The video below shows the fashion stitch being done. The loom here used is the blue long loom, not the rectangle loom, however the stitch is done in the same manner as the pattern above.
The video below shows how to make pom poms using the Knifty Knitter pom pom maker. If you do not have one, you can still use this method of wrapping on a round loom to get the same outcome.
