Jump on the pooling band wagon! Assigned Pooling is the hot new knitting technique, judging by the recent and prolific influx of new yarns on the market specifically dyed to pool. Learn how to make these gorgeous yarns work for you with this collection of stitches, and how to adjust your stitches to work with your specific yarn.
