Crochet Colour Pooling
Crochet Colour Pooling you say?
My friend just had to remind me the other day that I said I wasn’t going to try this colour pooling but then I saw Red Heart Super Saver had some French Country coloured yarn that would work perfect with some of these Nova Scotia Patches I had picked up.
I set out on a mission to learn what all the fuss was about. I found a listing on Ravelry by Marly Bird for a Planned Pooling Argyle Poncho which linked to the video below.
I made my first chain and worked through 1 colour change, I started to work the moss stitch, row after row and was really excited my work was pooling, but as time went on I realized I was still missing something as my pooling was not working up uniform as you can see below.
Crochet Colour Pooling Unplanned Vs. Planned..
It was at this point that I knew I was missing something, I was SO confused, they said it was easy and really it is, just something needed to click.. I had also watched this video by Naztazia.
She talks about how she uses only single crochet to work her colour pooling. I really did NOT want to work just straight single crochet, I don’t have the patience for just single crochet. After working on my unplanned pooling scarf something clicked and I was on a mission to use the moss stitch. I decided to count how many single crochet of each colour in the moss stitch like Naztazia did. Using these numbers I was able to work up a planned pooled scarf using the moss stitch. It really is super easy once it clicks!

A lot of people have told me they’ve watched everything, but something just isn’t clicking. I put together a photo tutorial of what I did in hopes that it may help some people to figure out how really easy Planned Crochet Colour Pooling can be.
