Crochet with Kate: PomPom Bunting & Bath PomPom
Ruffles galore await you in Crochet Club’s tutorial this week! Kate Eastwood from the Just Pootling blog brings you a step by step guide to making PomPom Bunting and a fabulous Bath PomPom!
Now I’m sure I’m not alone here in loving a bit of a frill and a ruffle and I can promise that this pattern certainly delivers on both of these counts. Not only are these little pompoms huge fun to make but the world is your oyster in terms of what you can do with them!
In this tutorial we’re going to make small ruffle pompoms to make bunting, and larger pompoms to make gorgeous cotton pompoms for the bath!
1. Small PomPom bunting
You will need:
- Drops Merino Extra Fine – 1 ball makes four pom poms
- We used Green (18), Cerise (17), Light Pink (16), Light Yellow (24) and Pink (25)
- A 3.5mm crochet hook
- Tapestry needle for sewing in ends.
Begin with a magic circle, ch 1 and work 20 dc into the magic circle. Gently close the ring by carefully pulling the end of the yarn, sl st together and ch 3. You are now ready to begin Round 1. You will be making a frill that is so full that it turns itself into a ruffle. Round 1: Work 3 tr into the same stitch as the ch 3.
Continue all the way around the circle working 4 tr into each stitch. You will soon find that because you are working so many stitches in to a relatively small circle your ruffle begins to form. At the end of Round 1 join the circle together with a sl st.
Round 2: Work 3 tr in to the same stitch as the ch 3, then continue all the way around the circle working 4 tr into each stitch. You will see that you now have a second ruffle forming on top of your first round. When you get to the end of the round join the circle together with a sl st. If you are making Bunting Pompoms finish off and sew in your ends neatly.
I used a piping cord to thread my bunting together , but you could use ribbon, string or a crocheted chain.
To finish your bunting carefully feel for the centre of the Magic Ring in each pompom and thread them on to the cord one at a time and space evenly.
2. Bath PomPom
You will need:
- 1 ball of Rowan Handknit Cotton (makes 1 pompom)
- We used Bee (364), Sunshine (354) and Bleached (263)
- A 4mm crochet hook.
- A tapestry needle for sewing in ends
- Ribbon for a tie handle.
Follow the instructions above for the small pompom, but after round two, instead of ending, work a third and final round.
Finish Round 2 and join the circle together with a sl st. Ch 3 ready to begin Round 3.
Round 3: Work 2 tr into the same stitch as the ch 3. We want this final round to be a slightly looser ruffle, so we are only going to be working 3 tr into each stitch rather than 4. Continue all the way around the circle working 3 tr in to each st.
At the end of Round 3 join the circle together with a sl st , finish off and sew your ends in neatly.
The final touch is to add a ribbon or a string: to do this carefully feel for the original magic ring and thread your tie through this and one of the stitch gaps in Round 1.
