    I made a baby sweater out of this yarn and knew I was in BIG trouble. It took a total of 14 baby sweaters in 8 flavors of the yarn before I was satiated. Be forewarned - this is a very addictive yarn.

    Fun sock yarn- 2 balls not quite enough

    2 balls too little for an average woman's socks but 3 balls would be way too much. Balls should have been packaged with this in mind - maybe 60 gram balls?

      I was thrilled to find a patterning weight that was supposed to be worsted. It does pattern which are great.
      The weight is light for worsted. I would use it as dk.

        Comments about Adriafil Knit Col:

        I bought the yarn on recommendation of a friend, and am making two hooded sweaters for newborn twins. The yarn knits up quickly, but does stretch a bit and unravels, so knitting with it is a little slower than usual. But the colors are fun and funky, can't wait to see the twins wearing them!

            Comments about Adriafil Knit Col:

            This was the yarn that got me hooked on striped socks. However, I realized after I made the first pair that they had to be knit much more tightly than I thought. Label says to knit on #7's; I knit them on #3's, but that really was too loose, felt grainy on the bottoms when I walked on them. I think it's because the yarn isn't very dense, probably more a sport yarn than DK. The bottoms are now very thin after only a dozen or so wearings.

            I will knit the next ones on #1's, and pray that there's enough yarn in two balls to make two socks.

            In spit of all this, I'm giving it 4 stars because most self-striping sock yarn is rough, and this is not. Wish Malabrigo or MadelineTosh would do some self-striping yarn, with a little more body.

            This product knits up in stripes but not as pictured on this site for socks. I am wondering if I knitted it into something large that might change. But it is more pink than I expected.
