Here are more detailed instructions, from the German pattern and from working the scarf:

Knitting instructions for working with pompom yarns: Only the yarn between two pompoms is worked. This yarn has both long and short pompoms, but the connecting yarn is still the only yarn that is knit. Two stitches are knit between each pompom.
This scarf is cast on along the length of the scarf, and worked to desired width. The entire scarf is about 30 rows total. For this scarf, all stitches are knit (no purl stitches).
On each row, the final stitch is one stitch between two small pompoms. The first stitch of the next row is the second stitch between those two pompoms.
Casting on. To cast on, create the first stitch between two small pompoms, by making a loop around the needle. Skip over the small pompom, and then cast on two stitches before the large pompom. Skip the large pompom and cast on two stitches before the next small pompom. Cast on 65 stitches on the needle, always making two stitches between each pompom. The last stitch will be between two small pompoms.
First row and all other rows: Knit one stitch before the first small pompom. Skip the pompom, and knit two stitches. Rep from * until you are at the last pompom (which should be a small pompom). Knit one stitch after this last pompom.
Casting off: After the desired width, or when nearing the end of the skein (about 30 rows total), bind off the stitches as follows. Cut the yarn to make sure you have the right number of pompoms for the last row (plus an extra or two). You should have a length that includes at least eleven long pompoms.
In general, you will cast off conventionally (knit one, knit the next one, pass the first stitch over the second) in the small pompom sections. At the long pompom, you will have to pull the yarn through the loop.
Knit one, skip the pompom, knit one. Pass the first stitch over the second. You will have one stitch on the needle before the large pompom. Pull the entire yarn through that loop, to cast off that stitch. Now, the next stitch on the needle will be the two stitches before a small pompom. Knit one. Knit the next stitch. Pass the first stitch over the second stitch. Skip the small pompom. Knit one stitch. Pass the previous stitch over the just worked stitch (this will sort of squish the pompom). Continue to cast off in this fashion, pulling the yarn through when you get to the one stitch before a long pompom.
