Knit Pom Pom Scarf for Yarn Bombing

By: Candace Jedrowicz

Yarn bombing has become a huge trend in cities big and small. Get in on the fun and learn how to make a Knit Pom Pom Scarf for Yarn Bombing from Candace Jedrowicz. Easy knitting patterns for projects like simple scarves will help you spread some love for yarn in your town.


 

Materials:

  • Yarn
  • Knitting needles
  • Needle with a large eye
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Scope out a good place for a yarn bomb.  Measure, if you’d like, so you’ll be sure to have enough to cover what you want to bomb.  Get permission if you think you need to.  I bombed a wrought iron fence around a tree on a public street.  It was in front of a neighborhood coffee shop and I told the owner she could cut it down if she wanted to. (The yarn bomb…not the tree)
     
  2. Knit a scarf.  How wide and how long depends on what you’re covering.  I just knitted until I ran out of time and THEN decided where to put it.  Either way works.
     
  3. Make pom poms to cover the holes.  You might not have to do that, but if you do, here’s an easy way to do it.  Cut a piece of yarn 10″ long.  Lay it in front of you.  Wrap yarn (from your yarn ball) around 2 fingers, 30 or more times.  Keeping it together, take it off your fingers and lay it on the yarn string.  Tie it tightly and cut all the loops open.  Use the ends of the 10″ piece to tie it in place.
     
  4. Pack your scarf, yarn, needle with the big eye and scissors and stake your claim.  Cut long pieces of yarn to thread onto the needle and sew the scarf together around your chosen bombing place.
     
  5. Take photos!  My friend, Mary, sews a card with her email on each bombing.  She gets some nice comments!
