Nice cotton yarn

By Quilter Becky

from Ohio

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Even Stitch
  • Light Weight
  • Soft Hand

Cons

  • Splitting Strands

Best Uses

  • Children's Wear
  • Warm Weather Wear

Comments about Berroco Weekend DK:

I'm making a vest for my 7 year old granddaughter. This is great yarn for children, especially for summer warm, or warm climates. The color is nice and bright (royal blue). My stitches look very nice and even. I like DK weekend cotton better than the regular weekend which seems to heavy in the garment I made from it.

This yarn does have a tendency to split whiling knitting but not as bad as the regular weekend does.

Beautiful yarn!

By Kat

from Newton, KS

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Beautiful color
  • Machine washable
  • Very easy to work with

Cons

  • Had To Make My Own Balls

Best Uses

    Comments about Berroco Weekend DK:

    The color matched what I saw on my computer screen very well. The only con is having to spend the time converting hanks into balls before starting my project. The sweater I am making is turning out beautifully. I also appreciate that it is machine washable.

    The yarn was exactly what I ordered. The Merino wool mixed with cashmere made the yarn feel so soft and light

    Great cotton blend

    By Pam

    from NC

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Crisp Stitch Definition
    • gorgeous color choices
    • Softer than cotton

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • "softies"

      Comments about Berroco Weekend DK:

      I used the DK to create some crazy amigurumi cats with granny square tummies. Verfy please with the result! Yarn is softer than 100% cotton, so easier on the fingers. Nice stitch definition, with enough "body" to create successful "softies". I will be using this one again!

      My grandson wanted a "light' green sweater. He picked out the color and when it came in, it was just what he wanted (He's 5 and very fussy). I got started on it right away and it's coming along just great.

      Splits, but very comfortable!

      By Carrie

      from Maryland

      See all my reviews

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Berroco Weekend DK:

      I bought this yarn to knit a lace circle skirt. I love the finished product! The yarn is soft and comfortable, with a lovely drape. My only complaint is that it really does split easily, due to the relaxed twist of the plies.

      By Finn's Mom

      from Sterling, VA

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Easy to knit with
      • For Co
      • Looks great
      • Very Nice Hand

      Cons

        Best Uses

          Comments about Berroco Weekend DK:

          I made a sweater with a large lace design. I screwed up several times, ripped out and did it again with the same yarn. This fiber is very durable. You cannot tell the fresh yarn from the one that was knitted 3 times. And I ripped 72 rows each time.
          I would buy this yarn again. My sweater is finally finished, and it looks beautiful, whew!
