I have used this yarn to design two patterns - for a scarf and for a hat. It is delightful to work with, though is sticky if you need to rip. I was amazed at how incredibly soft the finished products were while still having the wonderful sparkle. Most sparkly yarns are a little scratchy due to the glitz - not this one. One of my favorite yarns.

I purchased yarn to knit the Flicker Ruffled Scarf. Bought 6 skeins @ 189 yds ea. Project called for 5 skeins & I bought 1 extra. There were 3 to 4 breaks in 5 out of the 6 skeins. Due to 600 plus stitches in every row of ruffle, I could only knit 2 or 3 rows before the yarn was completely separated - not even attached. That along w/ occasional knotted spots, made this difficult to complete project. Loved the feel & sparkle of the Flicker yarn itself, but Berroco needs to correct this spinning problem.

    Comments about Berroco Flicker:

    Loftiness of this creates a good stretch. It is unbelievably light when finished, despite the appearance of it being thicker. So many compliments on it! The pattern I used this for is a capelet with a ribbing in the pattern. I made one in Black and put it on top of a leather biker jacket. Very cool and edgy! Made it in other colors for friends who LOVE this simple piece. It's warm, despite being light.

      I am using this product to knit a prayer shawl. I started a Prayer Shawl Ministry at our church several months ago, and lots of people are joining. I love making prayer shawls, and giving them to those going through a difficult time. I love Baby Alpaca because it is so soft.

        I made a Shawl with it. It made up beautifully and quickly. Very soft, but had lots of body. Am going to make another shawl in the same yarn. Colors are very pretty also.

            I used Flicker for a Cat Bordhi mobius cowl. This yarn is beautifully made, soft, easy to work with, gorgeous colors with just a flicker of glitter. I have issues with wool against my skin but I can have Flicker next to my skin with no problems. I can't think of one bad thing to say about it.

            • Hats

            Comments about Berroco Flicker:

            This is a beautiful lightweight yarn that I love to use for crocheted hats. It has a ton of stretch, so I use a size "L" hook for adult hats. If I make a baby hat I just use a smaller hook. It feels so soft and airy, yet is pretty warm for non-windy days. The color swatch is very misleading. I was given several skiens and was able to pick the colors. Taglioni is a very dark purple brown color, hard to describe. Myrtha is a forest blue- green. Hortensia is the color of Campbell's cream of tomato soup (prettier than that sounds). Giselle is a wine red.I liked the colors when I got them, but had to order more because I loved the feel of it so much. I ordered Benno, and it is pretty close to color swatch, a sea foam green with a touch of grey. Bolshoi is my favorite, a medium toned blue. Siegfried is pretty close too, a lavender that I think is beautiful. And Tan is definitely Tan! The 189 yards allows me to make a fairly slouchy hat with one skien. The stretchiness may be a pain at first, but the fabric is so nice it is worth the effort to get the sizing right. This is my favorite yarn and I am very sad it is discontinued.

              I use this to make accessories for women such as hats, cowls, mittens, and scarves. It works up beautifully and gives that sparkle to the finished product. Customers pick these items first.
