    I used this to make a short sleeve raglan sweater in pumpkin. Since this has some red strands as well as orange, it is a good color for spring/summer as well as fall. It was an easy pattern and since I'm just starting my foray into garments, I have to say it turned out beautifully. I like the texture of this yarn--soft and just slightly nubby. It was easy to work with and best of all it creates a very cool (temperature wise) comfortable fabric.

    I bought this to use for a newborn hat because it was described as soft. It definitely did not work well for a hat-it is scratchy and has no stretch. I should have realized cotton/linen would not have any stretch and I did not wash the hat, so maybe that would have made it softer(?).

        I'm making a top down raglan sweater with this yarn and I love. I wish there was more available. The yarn is beautiful and has great drape.

          I haven't finished the sweater yet, so don't know how it will be once washed. So far, I love it.

            I am knitting a twisted front shrug for summer and the drape of this linen/cotton blend is better than expected. I recieved it within 3 days and was surprised. Almost done with the finished product and very happy with the results!

              I made my granddaughter a knitted cardigan sweater and crocheted headband for St. Patrick's Day with the grass green Cricket. The gauge was perfect and it worked up very quickly. The color was as shown on the website, exactly what I wanted. She and I are very pleased. I ordered way too much, but can definitely use it for another sweater. (And I will).

                      Cricket is a great buy! I first bought Teal to make The Favorite Tank. When I received my order, I promptly went to the computer and ordered four more colors. How exciting! I ordered the "Birds Nest" booklet also. When the tank is done, I will be making the Blue Vest.
