Pom Pom Edge


I was looking 
for a cute border
to put on 
a granny square blanket
I just finished 
and came across this

I needed to modify it 
for my blanket
and wanted 
to remember how I did it
so I thought I would post 
how I did it here


I just love this cute pom pom stitch 


To start join with 
a single crochet
then chain 6


3 double crochet
in 3rd chain from hook 
holding back last stitch
of each double crochet
on your hook


You will have 4 stitches
on your hook
Yarn over and pull thru all loops
(cluster stitch made)


Chain 3


Make a second cluster stitch 
in the loop that closed
 your first cluster stitch


Join with a slip stitch
where your first cluster begins

To do this 
go thru the stitch
leaving 1 part of the stitch 
in the back
 and 2 parts in the front


Chain 3
Single crochet in your next space


There you have it....

Cute little pompoms
along the edge
of your blanket

They do take 
a little while
to make 
but
are well worth
the
cute factor
that they give
to my blanket!!

  36. I don't get the part when you say "go thru the stitch
    leaving 1 part of the stitch in the back and 2 parts in the front." Can you elaborate?

    1. When you do a chain crochet stitch there are 3 parts that make the chain. Two loops in the front and one in the back. If you look at picture 7 you will see the two loops on the front (that the hook is going thru) and there is one behind the hook. If you dont go thru this space the stitch will not hold. If you look at the picture here http://www.countryfarm-lifestyles.com/how-to-crochet.html in figure 1 you can see the 3 loops tha tmake up a chain. I dont think it much matters which two you pick up because sometimes I cant tell which is which just as long as you are anchoring your stitch there. Hope this helps.

    2. Oh I see! Like when they say to go into the 'back bump' of the stitch, right? Thank you for your reply, that does help!

  37. I love it!!! Your work is just BEAUTIFUL!!! I too, would like to like to know more about this, just like Summerset above ask...I don't get the part when you say "go thru the stitch
    leaving 1 part of the stitch in the back and 2 parts in the front." Can you elaborate?
