    POM-POM DECORATION
    Make 10 pom-poms.
    1. Hold one strand of each of the colors between the thumb and forefinger of one hand. Spread your fingers apart and wind the yarn around your hand 10 times. Keeping your fingers apart will keep the yarn from falling off. Cut the yarn and hold the cut ends between your thumb and forefinger as well.
    If you are making the pom-pom with a small child, consider having them hold the yarn and winding it around both their hands so they can be part of the process!

    2. Cut a 24-inch [60 cm] piece of the yarn that you want to use to tie the pom-pom to the scarf. Double it over. Pass it between your middle and ring finger underneath the bundle of the yarn. Tie it off, pulling the yarn as tight as you cal. If you are making the pom-pom with a child, pass the end of the yarn between their two hands, pull it together tightly and tie off.

    3. You will have a bundle of yarn with a long tail that consists of the yarn you used to tie off. Insert scissors into the loops of the bundle and cut the loops.

    As soon as you do, the yarn will fluff up and you'll have a pom-pom. If the ends are not even or if you don't like the shape, trim the pom-pom with the scissors until you are happy.

    5. Lay the scarf flat on the table, right side up with the edge facing you. Insert the crochet hook from the bottom to the top approximately ¼ inch [.5 cm] from the end and side of the scarf and pull half of the long yarn that secures the pom-pom through the scarf. Tie it to the other piece of long yarn so that the pom-pom is attached to the scarf. Tie it securely -- use at least one more knot than you really think you need just to be sure it won't come loose! Trim ends. Repeat the procedure for the other side of the scarf so that there are two pom-poms on the outside edges of the same end of the scarf.

    Fold the scarf in half lengthwise with the pom-poms together so you can tell where the middle is. Put another pom-pom there.
    Place the last two pom-poms evenly spaced between the ones that are on the scarf.

    Note: You may want to tie the pom-poms so they are close to the scarf, or you may want to leave an inch so that the pom-poms hang down and move more. Or, as in our example, you may want to mix lengths -- we tied three close to the scarf and put the two between them

    Repeat at other end of scarf.
