Color Pooling

The Christmas request was for a warm infinity scarf. I bought a nice variegated yarn. I chose a crochet stitch pattern, and I began.

By the second round, I realized that it wasn't going to work...


The stitch pattern is nice. It'll be really warm. But the colors in the yarn just aren't lining up right.


When one uses a variegated yarn and the colors stack, it's called pooling. These colors aren't pooling in a way I like.

I suppose I could alter the length of it until the colors pool well, but that's going to take more effort than I care to put in at this point in time.

Time to frog this and start over.

    1. The current iteration is a round and a half from done. I think I'll keep it.

    1. And I got to practice the star stitch, which I had been itching to do since I first saw it.

    1. This is a simple pattern. I'm not the best crocheter.

  8. I think it looks good..to me anyway. We are always so critical of one's own work.

    1. It's too bad I didn't have time to do another round or two. It wasn't looking right.

  9. I'm not sure how it's supposed to look, but to me it looks beautiful! I love those colors. I know how it is to be frustrated that something isn't doing what you want it to do, though. It's why I gave up doing my own fake nails.
