Yarn Pooling has been all the rage for the past year or so. As a lover argyle patterns I found myself attempting the technique but with little success and lots of frustration, until NOW! Yarn Pooling Made Easy by Marly Bird and published by Leisure Arts guided me to success!
Marly Bird is the national spokesperson for Red Heart Yarns, hosts the Yarn Thing Podcast and has been published numerous times. This latest book is full of tips and an excellent companion to her video resources, to help you get started with this fun technique.
The book includes 10 patterns, covering a wide range of projects, with beautiful colorful photos, schematics for garments and a supply list for each project. Here are a few of my favorites:
The basic concept is the use of variegated yarn in conjunction with the moss stitch, following a simple technique, and magically an argyle design appears! After I read through the book I decided to use the technique and patterns in the book as a guide, to create my own design. I was like a kid on Christmas waiting to open a gift. I couldn’t crochet fast enough to see how the pattern would emerge.
This is what I made……..
I used one skein of Red Heart Super Saver in Icelandic and about 100 yards of leftover yarns for the sides of this pillow plus I needed 3 buttons. If you’d like to make one too, you can find the FREE instructions HERE!
Yarn Pooling Made Easy is a great addition to your crochet library!
