      This is a great yarn for making a chunky scarf or cowl however, not all patterns do it justice. It is best used for a simple garter stitch or plain stitch pattern vs something lacy or complicated. The colour repeats are fairly short.

              I made a pattern called Raspberry Layers, a cap-sleeved one button cardigan and I absolutely love it. I uses colorway 2410, and the colors are genius! Because of the bulky weight, it knit up fast, and on the large needles still was soft and had a nice drape when steam-blocked.

                This is the yarn that started me knitting again. I walked into a yarn shop, saw a skein made up into a scarf, and fell in love with the color and texture. It is lovely to work with and the colors are beautiful.

                  I bought this to make a baby cocoon and hat for a newborn. Cocoon made with sz 13 needles, hat with sz 9. Thought it worked out either way. The set is so cute! Buying more to make a girl's sweater.

                        I have used this yarn for a scarf and intend to make a hat with it also. I'm sure it would work well for other projects.
                        A bit stingy on the yardage.

                          Once I figured out the best needle size to use, the fabric was beautiful. Don't try to use needles that are too small, as the fabric will become dense and uncomfortable. I used 10.5 for a cowl and it is perfect!
