I have used this yarn to design two patterns - for a scarf and for a hat. It is delightful to work with, though is sticky if you need to rip. I was amazed at how incredibly soft the finished products were while still having the wonderful sparkle. Most sparkly yarns are a little scratchy due to the glitz - not this one. One of my favorite yarns.

I purchased yarn to knit the Flicker Ruffled Scarf. Bought 6 skeins @ 189 yds ea. Project called for 5 skeins & I bought 1 extra. There were 3 to 4 breaks in 5 out of the 6 skeins. Due to 600 plus stitches in every row of ruffle, I could only knit 2 or 3 rows before the yarn was completely separated - not even attached. That along w/ occasional knotted spots, made this difficult to complete project. Loved the feel & sparkle of the Flicker yarn itself, but Berroco needs to correct this spinning problem.

    Comments about Berroco Flicker:

    I used Flicker for a Cat Bordhi mobius cowl. This yarn is beautifully made, soft, easy to work with, gorgeous colors with just a flicker of glitter. I have issues with wool against my skin but I can have Flicker next to my skin with no problems. I can't think of one bad thing to say about it.

    Color swatches not true to actual color.

    Comments about Berroco Flicker:

    This is a beautiful lightweight yarn that I love to use for crocheted hats. It has a ton of stretch, so I use a size "L" hook for adult hats. If I make a baby hat I just use a smaller hook. It feels so soft and airy, yet is pretty warm for non-windy days. The color swatch is very misleading. I was given several skiens and was able to pick the colors. Taglioni is a very dark purple brown color, hard to describe. Myrtha is a forest blue- green. Hortensia is the color of Campbell's cream of tomato soup (prettier than that sounds). Giselle is a wine red.I liked the colors when I got them, but had to order more because I loved the feel of it so much. I ordered Benno, and it is pretty close to color swatch, a sea foam green with a touch of grey. Bolshoi is my favorite, a medium toned blue. Siegfried is pretty close too, a lavender that I think is beautiful. And Tan is definitely Tan! The 189 yards allows me to make a fairly slouchy hat with one skien. The stretchiness may be a pain at first, but the fabric is so nice it is worth the effort to get the sizing right. This is my favorite yarn and I am very sad it is discontinued.

        This yarn makes up so beautifully with that little sparkle. It gives your project that added "something special". I can't say enough about this product. Hopefully it will be available in additional colors in the future.

          I have used this yarn for hats, scarves and cowls. It makes up beautifully with that little bit of sparkle, is so soft, holds the shape, and is so warm. Hopefully this metallic aspect will be added to a 4-ply yarn.

              This yarn crocheted up quick to make a headband and matching scarf. I used the black w silver flicker which created just enough sparkle for the intended recipient. I liked the yarn so much I bought it up in some other colors. The plan is to make wraps and shawls for myself and some co workers.

                I have now knitted 3 cabled hats, a cabled cowl, and several pairs of fingerless mitts with this yarn. My hat knitted with Flicker is my warmest hat.

                It is one of the softest yarns that you will ever touch! It's like knitting with a warm, cozy cloud. The small sparkles of bling are tasteful & pretty. I highly recommend this yarn.

                  Used this to make three infinity scarves for Christmas gifts, and they all came out beautiful! The little bit of sparkle makes them stand out, and all the recipients kept saying how soft the yarn was. It does stretch a bit, so you'd have to watch your gauge if you were making a sweater, but I never worry about that with scarves :-)
