Argyle just never entirely goes out of style! This year I am determined to take on this project and what better time to do it than on National Argyle Day!? Yes, there is such a thing and it’s today!
You may be wondering how in the world….if you haven’t heard of color pooling, you’ll know all about it soon. Variegated yarns are actually designed for this! Well, certain yarns. It’s a mystery of the yarn world that I’ve always wanted to decode.
To the right is a scarf made with Bernat Softee Chunky yarn. Click on the photo to get the free pattern and instructions on stich to use and how to color pool!
You see why I’m so curious about this now, right!? This next one is made with Caron Jumbo yarn and is just as gorgeous!
Yes, this pattern and how to align the colors is free as well!
So on this day in tribute to argyle, join me in searching for yarns that will allow color pooling and let’s make some seriously gorgeous argyle!!!!
Here are some yarns that I have found that will work:
Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice (the PRINT colors)
Sugar & Cream Ombre in ‘Fruit Punch’ , ‘Pink Camo’ , ‘Christmas’ and ‘Moondance’
Apparently after a while, you are trained to spot the correct variegation needed for color pooling. In the mean time, these yarns should get you started on this project!
I confess….I don’t have any of these at home. I will be making a trip to the craft store to get a few skeins so I can figure this project out once and for all!
For more tutorials and information, Interweave has a great page for those of us trying to get started on this here: Color Pooling 101
Good luck, wish me luck and ….
Happy Hooking, Hookers!
