Do you remember last year’s big trend? Yes, it was yarn pooling. Until then I had never heard about being able to make intentional pattern appear by simply using a variegated yarn and a crochet hook with a certain stitch. Super incredible. Today, I would like to do a book review of Marly Bird’s new book Yarn Pooling Made Easy.
Marly Bird is Red Heart National Spokesperson who has her own Youtube channel where she teaches how to crochet and knit. And of course she also has a huge amount of videos in her Yarn Pooling Playlist that will help you get started if you have never done Yarn Pooling before. Furthermore, she has a whole collection of yarn pooling patterns and tutorial on her blog which you can access HERE.
If you would like to purchase the book, just click the picture below:
Let me tell and show you some of the pattern you can find in Marly’s new Yarn Pooling Made Easy book.
The book comes with 10 incredible patterns that look so much harder than they really are. Once you know how to get yarn to pool, you are pretty much set.
The 10 patterns in the book are:
- Full Scarf
- Wristers, Cowl and Hat Set (3 patterns)
- Zig Zag Scarf
- Car Seat Cover
- Baby Cocoon
- Hooded Scarf
- Child’s Sweater
- Poncho with Raglan Yoke
Below you can see the Car Seat Cover that Marly designed using yarn pooling. It is so pretty and looks so much difficult than it really is.
This red Hooded Scarf is absolutely wonderful. It looks very pretty and will make any woman, or even teen or child looks special and phenomenal.
I would like to make all of these patterns some day, but for right now, I finally got to try yarn pooling myself using Marly’s Youtube videos. So easy and helpful. You need to try it. Below you can see my try on making a scarf using yarn pooling. I really like it.
