Creating beautiful argyle-print color-pooled scarves has been all the rage recently, but did you know that you can create different colorpooling effects with variegated yarn?

Color pooling occurs when the colors in a variegated yarn intentionally or unintentionally congregate, or pool, in an area of a project. WHY DOES COLOR POOLING HAPPEN? Simply stated—because of math. Math helps you determine the lengths of the color sections in your yarn and how to adjust your crochet tension based on those lengths. For variegated yarns that repeat colors in order, the colors will appear at regular intervals, and each color’s appearance can be calculated mathematically.
