    I agree with the reviewer who said the coloring of this yarn is happy and bright. It's soft and easy to crochet, although it did have an occasional tendency to split.

    Nice texture and color but unravels a lot

      Comments about SMC Multicolor:

      I bought this yarn in light blue/gray to make a baby boy sweater. The cotton is soft and the colors look great but this yarn unravels a lot! It takes longer to knit because you have to watch every stitch to make sure your needle doesn't go in between threads.

      Great cotton yarn, but ball band classifies this as worsted

      By Diane

      About Me Knitter

      Pros

      • Even Color Distribution
      • Machine Washable

      Cons

      • Slightly splitty

      Best Uses

        Comments about SMC Multicolor:

        Ball band classifies this as a "4", medium weight, not a DK. I was modifying an existing pattern, so for me it wasn't a big deal, but this may be for some who buys it with a specific pattern in mind.

        It is a bit splitty, but much better than many other cotton yarns. Using a pointier needle helps cut down on this. I did find several knots in one ball, but the rest seem to be fine.

        Aside from these things, I do love this yarn. It is soft, easy to work with, and the color distribution is great - no odd pooling/blobs. I would definitely use this yarn again in the future.

          Comments about SMC Multicolor:

          The color mixes of this yarn are bright and happy. They don't knit into stripes.It is soft next to the skin. My only concern was that on occasion there is a fine thread that separates from the rest.
