I'm curious about the pompoms in this pattern, where or how are they to be put on? Also does this really fit a baby, because mine looks like it would only work for a doll.

I am having difficult time in understanding border 2. What is and where is pom poms?

I don't get where thehow to make such pom poms are,and

where are the pom pom,something I missed, or do you make them, and how is this done or are they bought and added to the 2nd round of border,

The yarn suggested for use is yarn with pom poms on it. I couldn't find it so I used Red Heart Buttercup. It is a very soft baby yarn and the cocoons turned out adorable.

I don't understand how to "double crochet in next space between double crochets" in step 3. Do you have a video to show how this would be done? Or can you explain how this is done? Thank you for your time.

Oh how precious.
