I love Garlands. There is something so whimsical and charming about a really good garland, don’t you agree? So even though I haven’t picked up my crochet hook since last winter, I decided it was time to delve back into it when Bev from Flamingo Toes asked me to join in on her Crochet Garland Blog Hop! I find crocheting relaxing and I love being able to turn simple yarn into something gorgeous. To help entice crochet novices, I put together a super simple Crochet Scallop Pom-Pom Garland Pattern for you! And make sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see the 6 other awesome garland patterns AND to enter a fabulous crochet giveaway pack.
I received the Red Heart Yarn for this garland from Simplicity and received a Hook set from Boye – both of which you can WIN by entering the giveaway below! Loving those yarn colors? This is what I used:

Let’s get crocheting, shall we? For this garland you will need to know how to slip knot, chain, single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc) and slip stitch (sl st). I taught myself how to crochet two years ago with a little help from YouTube and online tutorials. I went ahead and linked each of those stitches to a tutorial so if you aren’t 100% sure of one, you can go take a refresher!
Scallop Pom-Pom Garland Crochet Pattern
Row 1 : *skip 2 ch, 5 dc in the next ch, skip 2 ch, 1 sl st in next ch; rep from * across to create 32 scallops. Sl st into last ch, cut a length of tail and pull all the way through
That’s it! The base of the scallop garland is done.
I used the fork method to create the pom-poms, leaving long tails that I inserted through a chain on the scallop base between every fourth scallop. I simply knotted the pom-pom tails to secure them in place and kept the knot behind the scallops. My 6 and 8 year old helped me make the pom-poms. They wrapped the yarn around the fork and helped me tie the tail around them, and I was in charge of trimming. They may not have turned out as perfect as if I was doing it myself, but it was a fun activity for us to do on a rainy afternoon and they felt proud to have said they helped!
