A great yarn for super fast knitting. I used it to make a blanket/throw for my son for Christmas. It's super soft, warm and cuddly. As another reviewer noted, it does shed a bit (I quickly learned not to wear black when knitting with gray yarn!) and has a tendency to pill. Hopefully in time that will settle down.

Comments about Cascade Yarns Magnum:

I knit a cowl with this yarn. The pattern called specifically for magnum. The color is rich and the scarf knit up beautifully. I did have some problems with it pulling apart several times. It was recommended that I wind the yarn from the end of the shank rather then the beginning to prevent this from occurring in the future with this particular yarn.

      Used this yarn for a buttoned cowl as a gift for a friend. I do not wear this bulky of a yarn but it was perfect for what she wanted. Perfect weight, perfect color and I did use a pattern that was designed with this yarn. She loved it!

      • Chunky Blanket

      Comments about Cascade Yarns Magnum:

      I use this yarn for making chunky blankets for newborn photographers. It's so thick, it works up quickly and makes for a very distinctive look. It's a little scratchy, but it's so bulky, I wouldn't use it for clothing anyway.

          I haven't knit in a number of years, but thought I'd try an easy infinity scarf that recommended this particular yarn. It was easy to knit and the yarn colors and weight are perfect! Now I'm knitting 3 more!
