Pom Pom Cowl

by lowbeamstudios

the pattern:  pom pom cowl from the Purl Bee

the fabric:  Globalweave Sheer Linen in natural and off-white pompoms from the LQS

the sewing:  I knew I had to have a cowl (or two) with pompoms after seeing this pattern on the Purl Bee.  Who can resist a pompom scarf?  I sewed it according to the directions with the exception of closing the loop before adding the pompoms.  This made for a cleaner edge along the seam.  I purchased the pompoms locally because I couldn’t decide on color over the internet and after sewing the scarf realized the string that attaches them to the cording is longer.  This makes it look a little circus-y to me.  I will be looking for pompoms more like the purl ones for the second scarf.
