Crochet Color Pooling CHEATS!

After spending countless hours working on intentional crochet color pooling last week, I figured out a couple little tension tricks to make things simpler.  Because I know my tension isn’t always perfect….and I want my planned color pooling perfect regardless!  This color pooling cheats/tips video features the crochet moss stitch and the argyle color pooling craze currently making it’s way around the land of the hookers.  Hope you find it useful and that it helps aid in your color pooling success!

I’ll be releasing a free pattern featuring this technique (you can see part of my project in the video) soon.  Be sure to sign up for my newsletter if you’d like to be the first to know when it’s ready!

  1. Have you completed the argyle blanket pattern?

    • It’s not a blanket, but I’ve been working on it and hope to have it ready next week. I’ve had a few other loose ends keeping me from finishing. Sorry for the wait!

  2. It looks beautiful so far. I can’t wair to see the finished product

  3. Thank you SO much for this video Melody!!! I’m about to start my first scarf with color pooling and I was worried about the what if parts lol

  4. What yarn did you use for this project?

  5. It is just beautiful. I wish they sold it in the US, I am a tactile person and would like to see if it is soft enough. Have you tired any other yarns? I have made the mistake thinking all yarns in a line are the same. I love a good challenge and that is a amazing result. Thank you for sharing.

  6. I want to recreate my family ‘Clan’ Tartan…. No pre-dyed yarn has the colors I need. Would this work with custom colors instead of gradient yarn?

    • You’d have to make the color switches at the exact right time (and entirely evenly throughout) in order to make the color pooling work with different colors of yarn. It would probably be quite hard with many ends.

  7. I thought so & I’m not sure it would be worth the aggravation of changing colors after every 3 – 4 stitches. Mayb e one day when I run out of my pattern stash I’ll attempt it! I’ll let you know if I do.
