Last weekend a few of our editors from AllFreeCrochet and AllFreeKnitting enjoyed a respite from the polar vortex and jetted off to sunny California for the annual Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) Conference & Trade Show. Aside from a weekend of warm weather, our editors enjoyed roaming the trade show floor, visiting craft and yarn companies from all over the world. Can you imagine? Hundreds of creative and crafty people gathered together under one roof! Not to mention all the yarn! Skeins upon skeins of beautiful fibers and innovative, gorgeous patterns. Our editors came back with goodie bags full crafting supplies and a slight tan, but most importantly, they came back with the scoop on the latest yarn trend: pom poms. That’s right! DIY pom poms were all over the CHA trade show floor. Every yarn company booth was proudly displaying their newest, most stylish patterns with fluffs of cute and colorful pom poms.
It’s no surprise that knit and crochet designers are all over these balls of fluff. DIY pom poms add a playful, unique touch to your projects that ordinary appliques can’t be beat. And don’t think that these tiny balls of yarn are just for kids. There are plenty of easy crochet patterns as well as tons of easy knitting projects for adults that feature DIY pom poms in a grown up way. Check out some of AllFreeCrochet and AllFreeKnitting’s stylish patterns that feature the latest yarn trend: DIY pom poms.
