|Do you see the pattern?? I did mess up at the top, again...|
|You need to do several rows before the pattern can show up...I got lucky and hit it right away!|
(Beware - Crochet jargon!) I started at the beginning of a color change, chained 32, then in the 4th chain from the hook started my pattern of single crochet, chain 1, skip a chain, single crochet, chain 1 until the end of the beginning chain so that I ended with a single crochet (I think I cheated a little and did it in the same space as the beginning because my count ended up off). Then I chained 2, turned my work and went into the first ch1 space to make a sc. The pattern is sc, ch1 and you do the sc in the ch1 space of the previous row. I believe this is called a 'moss stitch' so you can youtube how to do it and see someone explain it MUCH better than I do!
The hardest part of color pooling, once you find your magic number, is keeping your tension the same. If you don't, the pattern changes...
|Lost it! @#@#%!|
|Frogged back and found it aagain, yay!!|
It is very fun when it works, but you have to be patient! If you get it to work, I'd love to see your pictures and magic numbers!
Adding in a link to the Glamour 4 you blog showing the 'math' behind the pooling, I need to try this!
