I had always believed it as really difficult to make so I really shied away from patterns that had a pom-pom border, but when I saw this great video tutorial by Allover Yarn on Youtube, it was really was like seeing a myth-busting hero in action, who blew away those old ideas and presented a really simple way to make crocheted fringe as an addition to any pattern you are making. The way Allover Yarn explains how to make this fringe in a very simple way, she uses an ordinary crochet chain 3 stitch to measure how long you make the long loops that will become the pom-pom tassel border. After you manage to learn this method, you can easily modify this pom-pom border to make it as long or as short as you would like. This is a really cool way to add something new to an existing garment or decorative item as well, you could stitch a chain of this crocheted fringe to anything.
