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.

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

Hook: H/5.0mm

ch 200

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.

Add Pom-Poms

DIY Scallop Pom-Pom Crochet Garland Tutorial - Beginner PatternI 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!
