MAK­ING UP 1 Weave in all ends. 2 Make two pom-poms, one for each end, by wrap­ping the left over grey yarns from the cowl around your hand (see fac­ing page). Tie the cen­tre knot with a finer match­ing strong yarn (such as cot­ton DK), leav­ing long tails for at­tach­ing later. 3 Cut the loopy your pom pom. 4 Fluff out the ends of the yarn and trim the pom pom to make it even. 5 At­tach by pulling the yarn ends into the top of the icord and then fas­ten­ing them in a knot. 6 Weave in re­main­ing ends. See step-by-step pho­tos above for a great way to tie a long nar­row scarf!
