I made this and got really excited when it came time to add the pompom. I get a lot of comments when I wear it. Lol, "Oh, did someone make that for you?" No, I made it for myself!"



I use 2 yarns, which made my stitches pull kind of funny, giving it that corded look, but I like the overall effect. And I didn't do a crochet finished edge, so it rolls a little at the edges

I got the pattern from Knitty Gritty on DIY
