The Hook Nook is one of my favorite maker accounts to follow on Instagram, so when I heard Jessica Carey would be partnering with Joann Fabrics on a new line of products I marked my calendar. I immediately picked up two skeins of The Hook Nook Yummy Yarn, a bulky weight wool blend.
Living up to its name, this yarn is deliciously soft and perfect for staying cozy on a cold day. I’ve had this scarf pattern in my head for a while now and knew this yarn would be the perfect pairing.

Repeat rows 1-2 until your piece measures approximately 74 inches (188 cm)
Cast off. Weave in any loose ends.
Prepare the scarf:
Thread a needle with yarn and weave it through the end of the scarf. Once you have done this, pull the two ends together and tie a knot to cinch it together. Do this for both ends of the scarf.
Create two yarn pompoms:
To create yarn pompoms, cut a piece of yarn that measures at least 10 inches (25.4 cm). Cut a piece of cardboard that measures approximately four inches. Wrap the yarn around the piece of cardboard 100 times. Carefully slip the wrapped yarn off of the cardboard. Using the long string of yarn that you cut, tie a knot around the middle of the pompom leaving two long, loose ends of yarn (these will later be used to sew the pompom to the scarf). Cut the looped ends of the pompom. Fluff out the pompom and trim any ends that are sticking out as needed.
Sew pompoms to the scarf:
Thread a needle through one of the long ends of the pompom. Sew the long end into the scarf. Do this for both long ends.
