Posh Pompom Scarf



















Scrumptious colors of yarn can transform your hand crochet or knitted scarf into a snazzy scarf that would be a gorgeous gift for someone on your Christmas list. I had a blast designing this one, and the most fun was making the funny tasseled ends. I tied them on with bows! And they are shaggy, cute and most important, easy. Here's how I did it:

Catherine, I'm not a knitter or crocheter, but maybe we can do a google search and find one!
