Am knitting a striped sweater; combining it with a thin ribbon yarn. Pattern is showing up well. Knits smoothly. Only complaint; thought it was an orange/red, but turned out to be blue/red. Still love it!

Found these yarn twisted as I knitted and caused the stocknette stiches to twist. Not sure it will be wearable after it is blocked as the direction has changed. Very disappointed as this was the yarn suggested for the project I was working on.
I can't attach a photo, as I have not received the sweater back from being blocked

Loved this yarn

By California Bubbie

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport:

I'm not sure if I'm using the same yarn as the one mentioned in all the negative reviews. I loved everything about it. It was a pleasure to work with, allowed me to frog without any problems and produced exactly the look I wanted in my sweater. I will definitely be buying more.

Nice to look at, but splits

By Molly

from chicago, il

Pros

    Cons

    • Felted In Cold Hand Wash
    • Finished Product Balls Up
    • Fuzzy
    • Splits

    Best Uses

      Comments about Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport:

      Used for a sweater with a design using W&T, and lots of YO and K2T (everry other stitch along the border of 360 stitches - size Medium) I was very excited when I saw the yarn, but it constantly split while knitting and left fuzzies floating in the air. Will not use again.

      Luxurious staple

      By Karen

      from Central Florida

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Beautiful sheen
      • Blocks well
      • Stitch definition
      • Warm and cozy

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Garments
        • Shawls

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport:

        This yarn is soft and wonderful to work with. The silk gives it a beautiful sheen and warmth. The stitch definition is great. It blocks beautifully. I have used this yarn for three simply gorgeous shawls and two hats. These are go-to items; I love the look and feel of them. The colors are excellent, and I'll be buying (much) more if this yarn in many shades.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport:

        I've made sweaters and scarves with both the sport and worsted weight Venezia and love it, love it, love it. It does tend to split so you have to be careful to knit through all strands but this is a minor issue against the softness, drape, and beauty of the completed garment.

          Comments about Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport:

          I originally bought this yarn for a particular sweater pattern I had in mind. Unfortunately, it didn't "work" for that pattern, because that pattern had short row shaping in stockinette, and even after hiding the wraps, I could still see the stitches. Too much stitch definition. But I loved the feel of the yarn so much that I had to find the perfect pattern for it, and I did! Cables and lace patterns. Absolutely fabulous.

          • The Worst Thing In A Yarn

          Best Uses

            Comments about Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport:

            Isn't this the worst thing about a yarn while knitting. It separates into little strands when you knit. You need excellent light and to closely inspect each stitch.

            I love the yarn, but not sure if my inexperience in winding the hank into a ball causes the yarn to twist.
