Make 6 pompom and tassel units as follows:
Pompoms (make 6):
Using largest ring on Boye PomPom Maker, make pompom according to instructions. If you don't have a pompom maker, wrap yarn around 1.25" (3 cm) high piece of cardboard approximately 30 times. Thread yarn needle with 8" (20.5 cm) piece of yarn. Insert needle between cardboard and yarn wraps at top edge. Tie yarn tightly around all wraps. Cut wraps at opposite edge to form pompom. Shake pompom to distribute yarn evenly. Trim ends as needed.
Tassels (make 6):
Wrap yarn around cardboard 15 times. Slide a 15" (40 cm) piece of yarn under the wrapped yarn and tie a knot at the top leaving long tails to attach tassel to pompom and scarf. Cut lower edge of wrapped yarn to free ends. Wind a second piece of yarn around the tassel two or three times about 1" (2.5 cm) below the top. Knot tightly. Thread tails onto yarn needle and push to inside of tassel. Trim ends to make even.
Thread tassel tails onto yarn needle and then insert into the center of the pompom to form unit.
Attach three pompom and tassel units evenly spaced onto each end of scarf. Weave in remaining tails.
