Crochet Pom Pom Border: Fun Crochet Edges

This is a quick tutorial on how to add a crochet pom pom border to your crochet projects. It’s a great way to add some flair to your crochet edges.

It’s a really simple and fun crochet project idea for beginners, and even experienced crocheters are always looking for a new way to spice up their crochet edges.

If you’re looking for a fun use of your scrap yarn, you can use this for all sorts of little things. Blankets, coasters, mug rugs and home décor, they could all go from snore to a festive atmosphere with a crochet pom pom border.

The best part is, you can use whatever size hook and yarn you have on hand!

If you’re not sure what to do with these pom pom crochet edges, I’ll be posting a few projects soon that include this crochet pom pom border in them. It’s a good opportunity to get familiar with it before they’re posted.

  • For the Pom Pom border I like to crochet on the wrong side of the work because it creates a little bit of hole on the wrong side
