Taught by Michele Lee Bernstein / PDXKnitterati
Jump on the pooling band wagon with us! ‘Assigned Pooling’ is the hot new knitting technique, judging by the recent and prolific influx of new yarns on the market specifically dyed to pool. Learn how to make these gorgeous yarns work for you. We'll be starting the newest assigned pooling design from PDXKnitterati - Starfall. Starfall is a fingering weight bandana cowl with a cascade of stars on a stockinette background. Choose a yarn that is meant to pool; you’ll want an approximately 8 inch (20 cm) run of your pooling color. Choose from either our Dream in Color Smooshy Assigned Pooling colorways (available HERE) or the MadTosh x Barker Wools Collaboration colors (available HERE) for a perfectly gorgeous Starfall cowl.
Prerequisite Skills. Knit/purl, cast on/bind off, working in the round.
Homework. Cast on 120 stitches using the long tail cast on. Join to work in the round. Knit two rounds. (See handout for Michele's favorite method for joining to work in the round.)
Supplies you’ll need. One skein fingering weight yarn, dyed for assigned pooling. We recommend MadTosh x Barker Wools Collaboration (available for purchase HERE) and Dream In Color's Smooshy (available for purchase HERE). 20” US 4(3.5mm) or US 5 (3.75mm) circular needle; whichever size to get a fabric you like. Choose a needle with a smooth, tapering join between cable and needle so your yarn overs can move smoothly. One stitch marker to note beginning of round.
