Crochet Your Own Pompom Trim
DescriptionKatherina from stitchydoo couldn't find the right color pompom trim for her sewing projects, so she decided to take matters into her own hands and crochet her own. This guide shows you how you do it, too.
Crocheting the BorderFirst, crochet a chain of the length that you want your edging to be, then complete a row of single crochet. Now your border is finished, you simply need to add the pompoms.
Crochet a chain of 6 stitches.
Crocheting the First Half of the PompomCrochet 1 treble into the 3rd chain from the bottom, keeping the last stitch of the treble on the hook.
Finishing the First Half of the PompomNow crochet two more trebles into the same stitch, again keeping the last stitch of each treble on the hook. You will now have 4 loops on your hook. Pull the yarn through all 4 loops and you have now crocheted the first half of your pompom.
Beginning the Second HalfAgain, make 3 chain stitches.
Finishing the Second HalfCrochet 3 trebles into the loop, again leaving the last stitch of each treble on the hook. Again you will have 4 loops on your hook, and you need to pull the yarn through all 4 loops. Your pompom is now almost complete.
Finishing the Pompom
Place both halves on top of each other and finish the pompom with a slip stitch.
Finishing the BorderChain 3 stitches and connect your pompom with a chain stitch into the 4th loop from the stitch on the border in which you began your initial chain.
Your first pompom is now complete. Simply repeat the steps above to crochet the rest of the pompoms and finish your border.
