I have a question... did you find that this yarn pools in this pattern? Did you use 2 separate balls, alternating every 2 rows or so?

thanks,

Hi Sally,

As far as I can remember, I didn't need to alternate rows or anything special to avoid pooling. I didn't notice much pooling, although that may be because nearly/semi solids aren't as prone to pooling (or it's not as noticeable) as more multi-colored yarns.
