big pom-pom scarf

Few days ago I illustrated a girl and a scarf with big pom-poms. I just recently finished knitting a scarf like the image ~

I was happy the way it turned out and the selection of the yarn I used (LOOPS & THREADS; Charisma) was so soft on my skin! The pom-pom was the difficult part. I have never made a pom-pom this large so I had to be precise. Each pom-pom used 1 1/2 of yarn to make! 3 whole yarn to make 2 big pom-poms!! That's a lot!

After attaching the pieces together I was looking forward to wearing this this fall! ....I tried it on and it turned out to be the HEAVIEST scarf I ever wore.... It almost feels like wearing ball of chain on your neck!

So I have totally miscalculated how heavy 1 1/2 worth of yarn would be...I'll leave it for now and see how this goes. If it's too heavy then I'll consider trimming them to smaller size!
