Dream in Color Smooshy for YarnYAY! July Box #63

Dream in Color| Smooshy (Special YarnYAY! 50 gr hank)

This month we’re combining luxury with trend! Smooshy is the most delightful merino/nylon yarn. Combine its lovely drape with a dye technique perfect for assigned pooling, and you’ve got yourself a drool-worthy fiber experience.  We love the luminescent palette of our shade selection, Violet Fields, too!

Assigned Pooling Knit Pattern by Vickie Howell for YarnYAY! July Box #63

Assigned Pooling Scarves/Shawlette Patterns | Designs by Vickie Howell & Gavriella Tremino

Assigned pooling, made popular by Dawn Barker, is the technique of “assigning” a particular stitch pattern to a designated color in a variegated yarn. Usually, that means a plainer stitch for the main shade in the yarn, and then a textural stitch for the secondary color. We’re playing with this method in both of this month’s projects! You’ll have enough yarn for the scarves. Shawlettes will require a wee bit more.

The knit scarf (by Vickie), Seeds & Flowers, is a heart-shaped piece worked in Stockinette Stitch, then texturally embellished with Reverse Stockinette and Floret stitches. The crochet scarf (by Gavriella), Sun & Grain is worked from tip-out, dabbling in eyelets and back loop stitches.

    Is there errata for the pattern? I’m just now getting to knitting this one up and my WS instructions say to knit. No mentions of purling for stockinette stitch on the body, only the mention of reverse stockinette on the pooling. I’m 63 stitches in and realizing the photo doesn’t match what I’m knitting, but I’m following the pattern! I’m an experienced knitter, I know I’m following the written instructions. Help!
