Planned Pooling


What this is:

Sometimes knitters knit with yarn that has a repeating sequence of colors. Depending on the sequence of colors (and how many stitches of each) and the shape of the object being created (on this site, I'm simulating a square that's a certain number of stitches across), the colors can come out in different patterns. Pooling is when colors clump together forming 'pools' of the same color, but many different types of patterns can arise. This site should help you explore the possibilities, and perhaps help you plan a desired look.


Many thanks to Karla Stuebing who had the original idea to create a similar thing.

Thanks to my spouse for giving me lots of advice and feedback along the way.
