Hello there! Our friends at Yarnspirations sent us yarn to try from a new line called O’Go! It’s a new way to pull yarn from a skein that is tangle-free and quick starting.
I used a solid color along with a multi-colored O’Go to make a warm scarf. I have a video tutorial at the end of the post to show you how I pulled the colors apart easily. I chose to cut and separate them into sections, but you also could use them continuously without cutting.
Here’s a sample graphic that also shows the concept:
This was a new experience working with yarn like this and I didn’t know quite what to expect but overall, I was pleasantly surprised at how very easily the yarn pulled from around the outside.
I also did a test from pulling from the inside, which it did pull very easily, but it made the O’go fall apart. It’s recommended to pull from the outside and I think that is the smartest way to do so.
The solid color O’go is continuous without any breaks in the yarn. I pulled from the outside of the skein and it just got smaller and smaller as I went. I never had one tangle or yarn barf and the O’go stayed put as I pulled.
I did store it in a gallon size plastic ziploc when I wasn’t using it.
Let’s get to the pattern for the scarf! (It’s totally easy.)
Caron Colorama O’Go (100% acrylic, 180g/6.4oz, 208m/228yds)
1 skein First Blush, 1 skein Sticky Rice
Size K/6.5mm hook, scissors, tapestry needle
Single Crochet (SC): Insert your hook, yarn over (YO) and pull up a loop, YO and pull through two loops.
With Sticky Rice, make a slip knot with a 12 inch tail.
Make a chain that measures the height of the person you are making the scarf for. I made mine 5 foot 5 inches.
Tie off and cut and leave a 12 inch tail.
Mark the first chain made.
Make a slip knot with a 12 inch tail. Begin in the first chain made, in the back loop with 1 SC. Work 1 SC into the back loop of each chain. Chain 1 at the end of the row, pull through and tie off and cut leaving a 12 inch tail. Do not turn.
*Make a slip knot with a 12 inch tail. Begin in the first SC in the back loop with 1 SC. Work 1 SC into the back loop of each SC. Chain 1 at the end of the row, pull through and tie off and cut leaving a 12 inch tail. Do not turn.
Repeat from * for remaining rows making the color changes after 3 rows of Sticky Rice. Work only 1 row of color and then 3 rows of Sticky Rice.
When finished, trim each end of tails evenly.

Feel free to add more fringe if you’d like! Here’s a blanket we added fringe to and show how we did it:
Thanks for stopping by! I hope to be showing more projects using this yarn!
