    ... plain stitch such as garter, seed, moss. I like this yarn for hats (body; use another yarn for the band) knitted toy animal body parts, and trim such as cuffs and collars. The label says 'for best results, do NOT knit in Stockinette' but it worked fine for me for trim. I would not make a garment with it.

    Knit a swatch before you commit to a project. For the right application, it's lovely.

      Comments about S.Charles Collezione Panne:

      I am an experienced knitter and I purchased this yarn with plans to make chenille scarf for my husband, thinking that I could whip it up in an afternoon. Unfortunately, I just cannot get this yarn to perform acceptably no matter what I do. It is extremely slippery and will not stay in place on its own. I tried changing stitch patterns a few times... I tried alternating and pairing it with three different wool yarns, including Giselle (because the mohair fibers tended to hold together very well in other projects that I have used it for)... Nothing has worked. I would love to just toss this yarn, but can't bring myself to do it because it was so expensive!

      Comments about S.Charles Collezione Panne:

      Nice "semi-" yarn - is synthetic so the fuzzys to come out during knitting. I would expect it would be much more stable once washed and worn routinely.

      Would not reccommend for something that needs lots of streach - this is fairly tight. Hats, cowls, bags - all mibht work well.

      The black color is soooooooooo dark - need really bright light to see the patterns in the yarn well - or maybe I am just getting old!!!

      It is a nightmare to work with. It is beautiful in a skein but I could not find a pattern to enhance the look of the yarn. Very disappointed as it was quite expensive.

        Comments about S.Charles Collezione Panne:

        This was a nightmare for me to work with. I tried to do the "Sandra Cabled Cowl and Beret"--which is a patter by "TSC Yarns," specifically meant for this yarn. Well, the yarn slips and slides--loops hide under other loops, and so I actually had to cast on three different times because the count kept coming out wrong. If you pull (frog) this yarn out, forget about getting it back on your needles the right way because the whole thing keeps twisting, loosing that flat look totally. It is so pretty and so soft, and perhaps it will work better for me in a very simple pattern. The thing is, whenever I wanted to check back on my pattern to see where I purled or knitted, I just couldn't discern the stitches. It really blends together and blinds you with the lovely brilliance. So, it would probably hide mistakes, but when working in a pattern repeat of 17 with knits, purls, and two types of cables, I wanted to hit myself over the head with a salami! Perhaps if you are very experienced or use this for a simpler pattern you will not experience my pain. I am a pretty good knitter too--I can whip through things quickly, but this was a big "no" for me. But yes, it is wayyy soft, shiny, and beautiful.
