Feb. 26 2020 New Sample! (The second and third picture). This time I knit with a DK weight. For the details and more pictures please visit the project page:

Colour pooling is used to achieve the vertical blocks of colour.

I call this the DaVinci Cowl because once you “crack the code” for the number of stitches you need to produce the colour pooling you are set to go.

The pattern will explain how to find your personal code number, uniquely yours and this technique can be applied to any yarn that has the ability to pool.You will know how to unlock the code with any needle size as well. I used a 4mm for this project but please note if your yarn is thinner sock yarn you may want to go down to a 3.5mm or even a 3mm depending on your tension. SweetGeorgia is on the thicker side.

This is a fun project and a great way to dive into the fun of colour pooling with one skein of a beautiful hand dyed yarn. Each cowl will be uniquely yours!

** If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at colour pooling try this pattern! It is clear and easy to understand assuming you’ve had your daily intake of caffeine and a proper nights sleep lol. MissBehavin

Justquiltin This pattern is well written and easy to understand to get the yarn to pool. Already planning the next one!

(The cowl will be approx. 7 to 8 inches wide and 54” long)

There have been many great questions covered in the group about the technique and suitable yarns. I am always around to help and many successful poolers can share their tips with you as well. We’ll get you pooling, together. Take a look at the DaVinci Cowl thread there for lots of help and advice and thanks to the wonderful knitters who have allowed me to share their projects!
