Planned Pooling 2.0 Crochet
An in-person class with Victoria Light
Nov 12, 2:00pm-5:00pm PST
Ever wonder how to use those “planned pooling” yarn skeins? It isn’t just about making an argyle pattern. You can do a lot to control color placement! If you can work single crochet, this is the class for you!
Remember the crocheted argyle craze? Those “planned pooling” afghans and scarves were amazing! There are many other ways to plan color placement with variegated yarn. In this class, you will learn several techniques. We will practice techniques in sequential order — building on each previous skill.
In conjunction, you will chart stitches onto graph paper with colored pencils, which will provide a much deeper understanding of color placement. We will touch upon argyle as time allows, but there is so much more to learn! You will create vertical stripes, diagonal stripes, checkerboard, puff stitches, flowers, borders, and more, both circular and flat.
Did you know you can even use Tunisian crochet for planned pooling? You absolutely can — and you will see how. Fall in love with planned pooling all over again!
A yarn kit with a variety of multicolored yarns will be provided.
