Okay, after seeing this post by MsHeirloom http://www.knittingparadise.com/t-515616-1.html (AMAZING scarf by the way!!!) I just had to try this myself. I find this amazing!!! I have some Redheart red, white, blue yarn I bought at a yard sale for $1.00/skein and just had to try this out. This is what happened. I was enjoying the argyle pattern that was emerging but then the mess in the middle appeared. Then back to the argyle pattern. I don't know why as this is all new to me. I used size 7 needles and cast on 44 stitches and did a K1P1 ribbing. I'm going to keep knitting to the end of the skein to see what happens. Are there any pooling experts out there that can explain this to me? I've done some research and find mostly crocheting pooling tutorials, tips, charts, etc. and even those don't make sense to me. haha

I kind of like the "mess in the middle," think of it as an interesting part of the design.

Red Heart multicolor is great for pooling! Your argyle scarf is amazing.

I have made simple designs in scarves by doing single crochet and also double crochet. It is so much fun to see the colors as they appear.

I'm no help, I'm just commenting on how amazing it is that this works out at all. I never tried it. It looks like there's math involved somewhere and math is something that terrifies me, even though I know knitting requires a good amount of math.

The only time I have seen the pooling do weird things like that is if there was a break in the yarn in the skein and the factory tied a new end on it. However, like aljellie, I kind of like the weird pattern in the middle.

That was my first thought as well, a break in the yarn, but there was none, no knot or anything. I have 5 more skeins so when this is finished I will try again with different size needles, number of stitches, etc. to see what happens. :-)

I agree with aljellie. Interesting look!

I’m not an expert. Far from it. But, I did planned pooling crochet. I learned using you tube. I believe it was with Marley bird. At one point in the video ( crochet) she states you my have to change your hook size if the pattern isn’t lining up . Good luck.

Good luck. Can't wait to hear what happens on your next go.

I think that your scarf is great. All the colour pooling that I have seen is done in crochet, so to see one that is knitted works for me!

I don’t know, but I think it looks pretty neat. It’s an unexpected design feature.

I really do like your scarf, both the argyle and the "mess" parts! I think you did a lovely job, and I'm sure you'll get lots of compliments.

Looks good to me too. I think I'll get a similar yarn out of my stash and attempt this myself.

I haven't done this yet but I have been wanting to try it. I have played with this chart and it is fun. http://www.plannedpooling.com/#{"nColors":4,"colorChoices":["#61F14B","#5891F4","#B67FF4","#F458B6"],"numStitchesChoices":[5,9,5,5],"unitsWide":37}
This a good video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQglfEGw0Jk
I believe you have to watch your stitch count too. If that changes it changes pattern. I bought Christmas color yarn from red heart I want to try a scarf with but haven't had the time.
I think your scarf looks really cool.
