      Pros

      • Gorgeous Color
      • Nice Drape
      • Smooth Feeling

      Cons

      • Easy To Split
      • Occasional Knots

      Best Uses

      • Garments Like Sweaters

      Comments about Berroco Weekend DK:

      I love the color and feel of this yarn. It is a pleasure to knit with, and it has a nice drape and sheen, not stiff at all. I am using it on a mock wrap sweater, and so far it is perfect.

      One skein of the seven that I ordered had a few knots, and the strands were not evenly spun, but only for a small section. Also, it is a 4-ply, and very easy to split the plies if you are not careful; although it is easy to see the mistake and correct.

      I would definitely use this yarn again, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good deep color, sheen and drape.

      • Generous Yardage
      • Great For Crocheted Items

        • Openwork Fashion Items

        Comments about Berroco Weekend DK:

        I use this yarn quite a bit for crocheted beach cover-ups and openwork tunics. Also summer hats for kids. I live in Florida, most big chain stores carry too much wintry heavy yarn. So thanks Berrocco for making Weekend dk .

        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

          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.
