You will crochet with both yarns together making one.
Rnd1: (start with blue and green yarn together) Make a magick circle. DC 12 in the magic circle join in the round with a SLST to top of CH2.
Rnd2: CH 2. DC 2 in CH2 ST(making an increase). DC 2 together in next 11 ST until end of row (making an increase on every ST, total of 24 DC). Join with SLST to the top of CH2.
Rnd3: CH 2. DC 2 in CH2 ST (making an increase). DC 1 in next ST. DC 2 together in same ST (making an increase). Repeat (DC 1, DC 2 together in same ST) until end of row (total of 36 DC). Join round with SLST to top of CH2.
Rnd4: CH 2. DC 1 in CH2 ST. DC1 in every ST until end of row. Join round with SLST to top of CH2. Repeat for 3 more rows. (Total of 4 rows).
Rnd5: CH 2. DC 1 in CH2 ST. DC 1 front post next ST, DC 1 Back post, repeat front and back post DC in every ST until end of row. Join round with SLST to top of CH2. Repeat for 1 more row. (Total of 2 rows).
Now all you need to do is add your favorite size pom pom. I cut a piece of cardboard about 3 ½” x 6”. I wrapped blue and green yarn together on the 3 ½” side for about 40 times. Slide it off the cardboard and tide it nice and tight in the middle about 2 times. Cut yarn loops all around, after you cut them open, you can trim the edges to make it nice and round.
