        I used this yarn for a sprng scarf with SpiceBerry yarn. SpiceBerry yarn is fun yarn with little balls that adds to the ribbon yarn..

            Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Katydid:

            Saw a model of sweater I knit in a shop and had to have it! Yarn is great and I did not try to keep it flat since it is a bit like a thick cotton ribbon. Cannot tell at all. It is a bit denser than I thought but I am trilled with the look. Soft, drapes well and hope to use it again.

            Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Katydid:

            I used this to make the Spumoni top from the Classic Elite "Double Scoop" leaflet for Spring 2012. I found it quick to use and pretty easy other than being obsessive about keeping it flat on my needles since it resembles a ribbon more than a round yarn. Whether I needed to do so I couldn't say because I couldn't stand to have some stitches flat and others not..

              This is a very nice tape yarn. It knits up smoothly and is not as hard on the hands as regular cotton yarn. Made 1 sweater and will be making more.
