I made two beautiful, soft, airy scarves, a baby sweater, and a lap afghan with this marble chunky. The yardage is long and the price is a great value for the quality and beauty of the yarn.

I should have known as soon as I opened the box that this yarn would never do for making an afghan. It was marked: "Will knit up as chunky for most patterns." It is thin, stringy, stretchy, and not all that soft. I was going to make an afghan with US13 needles, but I don't want to interact with this huge disapointment of a yarn for that long (and, since it really isn't chunky, I won't have enough for a decent size afghan). I even knit a swatch in US10 needles to see if it would work for something else. Even at US10, this yarn was a disappointment.

      Comments about James C. Brett Marble Chunky:

      This is an old standby yarn I use to knit baby "cocoons", or sleep sacks, and car seat blankets. It's soft, comfortable, and machine washes nicely. Also works up very quickly on Size 11 needles. I've never tried it, but due to the texture I don't think it would lend itself to crochet as well as it does to knitting.

        I have made this into two afghans and have now made several scarves with it. I am so very attracted to its color. My friend says the name of it should be "Northern Lights."

            I love this Marble Chunky yarn. I am a member of the Prayer Shawl Ministry on Block Island, RI and you only need 2 balls of this yarn for a complete shawl, including fringe. I use patterns written by Louis Chickette found on Ravelry and James Brett Marble Chunky is the suggested yarn. Great colors, too!

                  I crocheted a giant granny square baby blanket with this yarn. I love it so much I am making a big one for myself. There are a lot of yards in this yarn by weight, so it goes a long way. The color changes are lots of fun, and turn out looking good. It machine washes and drys. I'm knitting a scarf from it now, it is very soft.

                      I used the green marbled and the varigation made a lovely blanket. Enough of a varigation to be interesting but not so much it hid the lovely pattern.

                        I've used this yarn on multiple projects and am constantly asked to "make one for me" when others see something I've made for someone else. It's colors are bright and deep and it gets softer with each wash. This is my favorite yarn.
