Back when I was just learning how to crochet, the moss stitch easily became my favourite stitch (both in crochet and knitting). There were many projects with the moss stitch … an easy and relaxing stitch to get in the rhythm of crocheting.
One of my earlier moss stitch projects was a scarf, and it started out beautiful with the argyle effect. After I attached the second skein, it didn’t continue the pattern. I think it’s still tucked away in a storage box of WIPs.
Recently, the crochet moss stitch and planned pooling of colours has risen to the top of the crochet trends. I had just gotten two hanks of the limited edition colours from Expression Fiber Arts, so I decided that I would try and get the argyle effect this time.
But it didn’t last long … not even when I attached the second hank …
I didn’t mind. I liked the colours, and the effect. And the colours were pooling, even if not the way that I wanted or expected it to.
And once it’s wrapped around your neck, it didn’t matter how the colour pooling patterns came out … It still looked good.
I’m hoping this colourway comes out again … I want to make it wider and longer. Making it longer is no problem, but making it wider will change the patterns a bit … or a lot .. and I don’t want to frog this any more. So it’s going to sit in my WIP bag until the colourway comes out again. I can wait …
