I bought two contrasting Berroco skeins of Vintage DK yarn for "Looking for Spring", a cute free stranded hat pattern on Ravelry.

This yarn was perfect for the project. I'm an experienced knitter, but a novice at stranded knitting. The finished project produced very even stitches and the yarn was lovely to work with. A huge bonus I wasn't expecting was seeing the yarn bloom with a slight halo, after soaking and blocking the hat.

I love Berroco products; you can't go wrong with them.

I'm using this yarn to make a delicate, lace-patterned scarf for my mother's 60th birthday. It's lovely, the yarn itself is beautiful and the scarf is coming along nicely, and it looks good in the lace pattern, showing off the details of the pattern. My only concern about it is that I'm afraid it's going to be a little scratchy, and on the delicate skin of the neck I feel like that's a pretty big deal.

    Comments about Berroco Vintage DK:

    This is my favorite yarn for knitting cabled sweaters. The stitches really pop. I like that I can change the needle size and get a completely different effect, yet it never feels stiff or over worked. It has a nice drape.

        I purchased 2 colorways - Ruby and Chana Dal. Ruby is a pretty medium red and the Chana Dal is a deep curry-yellow. It's got a nice weight, is soft, and works up nicely. It comes in a nice variety of colors too. I would buy this again.

          Currently making the autumnal sweater and really love the one piece body. The DK is perfect for this project. Easy to work with, does not tangle and is soft on my hands. Keep away from Velcro :).

              Love all of the Vintage yarn weights. The yarn washes and drys nicely. The yarn actually softens up with washing.

                I am quickly finding that this is becoming one of my favorite sweater yarns. It has a nice softness and good texture for sweater knitting. It's easy to care for and comes in great colours.

                      I recommend using blunt needles to knit with to avoid splitting. Great to use otherwise and very soft.
