There have been many lovely posts of CROCHET items with colorpooling, and I thought some of you might enjoy seeing this simple KNIT keyhole scarf with colorpooling, which gives it an argyle effect.

I'm including the details for any who may wish to knit something similar.
Yarn brand ................... Red Heart, With Love (1 skein)
Yarn color name ............ Cerulean (this is a variegated yarn, with three colors)
Yarn variegated colors ... dark blue, medium blue, muted teal. The medium blue and muted teal photographed similarly.
Yarn color change ......... about every 24 inches
Needle ........................ size 8 Knitter's Pride cubic
Stitches per row ........... 28 (first stitch is slipped)
Scarf stitch .................. 2x2 ribbing
Scarf size ..................... 45" long x 4" wide (stretches to 8" wide easily due to ribbing)
Keyhole scarf patterns ... see this old post.
Pattern variations for this project:
1) This scarf is made with one keyhole, to be adjustable in length. The scarf's tails will be symmetrical lengths or asymmetrical lengths, depending upon how the scarf is adjusted to allow more room - or less room - around the neck.
2) The ends are knit straight across (not pointed like a leaf). I cast on 28 stitches in 2x2 ribbing.
3) The keyhole is created on the full 28 stitches, to maintain the colorpooling effect.

Happy knitting!

Thank you all for your encouraging replies.

Here is another simple KNIT keyhole scarf with color pooling, which gives it an argyle effect.

For this scarf, I began with colorpooling.com and entered the variegated yarn's color progression and number of stitches in each color, worked with my chosen needle. Then I changed the entry for "Stitches in a row" until I determined that 26 stitches looked best. Voila!

The second photo shows both the plans displayed on colorpooling.com and the actual scarf... for comparison. The argyle effect on the scarf is subtle, due to knitting with 2 strands of yarn held together... one strand of variegated yarn and one strand of oh-so-soft, solid-color, fuzzy yarn. I like the results, and the yarn was a joy to knit with.

Note to self: Because the yarn was a joy to knit with, incorporate this into more upcoming projects. For example: make a puppy keyhole scarf with two strands of yarn held together, one of the strands being this Yarn Bee Baby Lou Lou in white or cream.

I'm including the details on this color pooling scarf, for any who may wish to knit something similar.
Yarn 1 brand ................... Yarn Bee - Baby Lou Lou (luxuriously soft acrylic yarn with a light, airy, silky, fuzzy effect)
Yarn 1 color name ............ Minty (solid color)
Yarn 2 brand ................... unknown - no label - leftover from another project
Yarn 2 variegated colors ... color progression: *Yellow, green, turquoise, purple, turquoise, green, yellow, red (repeat from *)
Yarn color change ........... varies: Yellow, green, purple (6-7"), turquoise (8"), red (11")
Needle .......................... size 10 addi turbo
Stitches per row ............. 26 (first stitch is slipped)
Scarf stitch .................... 1x1 ribbing
Scarf size ....................... 45" long x 5" wide
Keyhole scarf patterns ..... see original post in this thread.
Pattern variations for this project:
1) This scarf is made with one keyhole, to be adjustable in length. The scarf's tails will be symmetrical lengths or asymmetrical lengths, depending upon how the scarf is adjusted to allow more room - or less room - around the neck.
2) The ends are knit straight across (not pointed like a leaf). I cast on 26 stitches in 1x1 ribbing.
3) The keyhole is created on the full 26 stitches, to maintain the colorpooling effect.

With this yarn, I noticed that tighter knitting made the argyle effect more vertical, stretched lengthwise over more rows... while looser knitting made the argyle effect more horizontal, using fewer rows for the red color to cross diagonally from one side of the scarf to the other.

Happy knitting!

The keyhole scarf pattern is basically in my head after knitting hundreds of them over the years. There are a variety of keyhole scarf patterns available free on the internet, which can be used as a starting point. This old post lists several.

In the posts for the 3-color-variegated-yarn color-pooled scarf, and the 8-color-variegated-yarn color pooled scarf, I noted the changes from the basic keyhole scarf pattern... to create the scarves pictured.

There is now also a new post sharing a sample of 10-color-segment color-pooling on a simple ribbed scarf.

Happy knitting!
