Joy of Pompoms

If a knitted or crocheted project were an ice cream sundae, a pompom would be the cherry on top. Just like maraschino cherries are meant for topping desserts, pompoms belong on projects with a definite sense of whimsy and fun. For examples of great patterns using pompoms, take a look at Liddell and Ion from the fall pattern booklets, and Gretchen from our KnitBits archive.
