Yarn Pooling Throw

yarn-pool-blanketI posted about my previous experiment in yarn pooling and mentioned I was working on another.  Well, it is finished and I really like the look of it.  I used Caron Simply Soft Stripes in “Churchill Downs” color. (I have been there many times and none of these colors make me think of the place!)  I think it turned out pretty cool though.  It uses granny stitch (6 cluster for each color) and I did the border in cream Caron Simply Soft with one row of double crochet and two rows of single crochet.  I based it off the pattern in this blog post from Repeat Crafter Me.  The hardest part is making each color turn out into exactly 6 clusters, so a lot of ripping out and redoing with either tighter or looser tension to get there.
