I used the Terra Cotta color to knit the While Sangria sleeveless top by Baby Cocktails and I loved both the knitting process and the final product. The yarn knits evenly and the resulting fabric is heavy enough to provide good coverage in a top like this. I found one knot in the three skeins I used and noticed that it does sometimes knot itself if one doesn't monitor it. I would definitely use this yarn again.

I bought this yarn for a sweater but ended up using it on a shawl. It was very slippery and I had trouble winding it as the yarn kept falling off the ball in my hand. I tried using KnitPicks Acrylic needles for a little resistance but the yarn split terribly. I then tried KP's Harmony (wood) but still no luck. I then went with KP's nickel needles as these are the sharpest needles I have, and it was better but the yarn was so slippery that it was quite a challenge keeping the stitches on the needles. I finally gave up. I love the sheen the yarn has, and the weight is great, but I found it very difficult and frustrating to work with. Because the yarn definition was so good, it hid nothing and each split stich was so obvious. I was constantly going back and fixing split stitches I probably will not use this yarn, or maybe I'll use it in conjunction with another yarn for a bulky coverlet.

    Comments about Berroco Weekend:

    I knit a sweater with this yarn. It worked up quickly and I like the finished product a lot It has a very nice drape. I expected that I would be likely to splice the yarn as I knit, but that didn't prove to be a problem. I would use this yarn again.

      Comments about Berroco Weekend:

      I used this yarn to knit a child's sweater Alrhough the finished product came out as I expected, I will not use this yarn again It was recommended by the designer, so I thought it would be fine. It unravels easily and I needed to research a better way to knit the shoulder seams. The seams are a little thick and do not lay flat. I am disappointed because Berroco usually has great yarn.

          Berroco Weekend is my go-to worsted-weight yarn for gifts for people that might not pay strict attention to their laundry. It washes like a dream, and wears just as well. Great range of colors, and so affordable!

            as you can see I don't have anything good to tell about this yarn. My daughter wanted cotton and not acrylic or wool
            that's why I purchased it. I'm sorry I spent money and time on this. by the way I'm not a novice and knit constantly different projects and never had this experience.

              Comments about Berroco Weekend:

              My only wish would be that the hanks be wound before they are sent to me. I had a difficult time winding into a ball and knotted the first hank. Other than that, I don't have any complaints. Love this yarn....

              Service and delivery comments:

              Just wish the hanks could be wound before it's mailed to me.

                I knit a sweater for my grandson (2yr).

                The sweater is not finished yet.

                I have adapted a pattern by Louisa Harding.

                The original pattern asked for Rowan wool cotton. This is a finer yarn.

                It will turn OK

                    At last a cotton I can knit with. I love cotton but have had a lot of problems with it in the past. This yarn is perfect. shows great stitches and is easy to work with. I am making a sweater and have breezed right through it. the price is right as well. I have compared it to the other new cottons with nylon and this still is the best. Don't be afraid to buy it. I can also see it being used for baby items.
