Great low maintenance chunky tweed

This yarn has a vibrant color and knits up beautifully. The stitches are very even and there is only minimal variation in the thickness of the yarn.

i would not use again

I made a shrug and it turned out OK but I felt there was too much variation in thickness of yarn and would have preferred something a little softer.

    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky Tweed:

    I am still in the process of knitting a sweater with this yarn. It's nice and soft. It has just enough tweedy fibers to give some texture but not too much. So far (I'm on the third skein) no knots or flaws in the yarn. I hope it washes well without pilling. Then I'll rate it perfect!

          I have always loved Encore Tweed and I have never found anything that compares to it. It is another quality yarn in the Encore line and I love that WEBS has the chunky available since you can't always find it everywhere.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky Tweed:

          I ordered this blind on the internet when I ran out of yarn while knitting my daughter's Christmas present sweater. I figured it wouldn't matter if the dye lot was a little different because it would be used for the mock turtleneck and not be an actual part of a sleeve, for example. Without even trying, I received the same dye lot. Just delighted.

              Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky Tweed:

              I used to knit all of the time, but a major stroke came to me in 2007. I am now a beginner. I have never found anything wrong with any of the products that I have purchased from Plymouth Yarn. It knits better than any yarn that I have ever used, even Cashmere. Do not tangle, easy to get a mistake out if you need too and yarn does not lay flat where it will make a bigger hole in the product that you are making. It is just a great yarn. Cost is good too.

                  I've been knitting socks as gifts but this is 1st time I've used this weight. Its really fun to work with, the free pattern I got with it is challenging enough to keep me occupied but not so difficult its frustrating. I would recommend everyone try this yarn for socks.

                    This is my FAVORITE for making afghans; it is so soft and knits up quickly for cuddly afghans. Everyone who has recieved one of these afghans as a gift loves the softness and warmth. I have also used this yarn for Project Linus afghans and Tender Loving Care Ministries hats and scarves.
