Design Story and Inspiration
When Mary Maxim sent me their gorgeous Starlette Variegated yarn I fell in love but I had one problem…I am not a fan of color pooling. Believe I know it’s gorgeous and it’s a fun technique but I don’t have the patience for it. Because of that I really didn’t know what to do. I love the softness off this yarn and I wanted to make a quick project so I decided to triple up this yarn to make a cozy chunky crochet infinity scarf!
Now, I like sublet color pooling, I don’t like big pocket of color. So what I did for this crochet cowl pattern was make sure I started each skein from a different color!
