I am using this yarn for a variation on the sweater pattern originally written for super bulky wool (pictured below). The yarn is really nice, the color is quite consistent, and it drapes beautifully. I have found a few breaks in the third skein - and it's only 66 yds, whereas there were none in the first two that I wound up. We'll see how the rest of the lot goes. I do find it a little sticky on my bamboo needles (which are still relatively new) - it does catch a little from time to time, but it is still an easy yarn to work with. I'm excited to finish the sweater. One star off for the breaks in the yarn, but a pleasure to work with!

Although the yarn has pretty gradations of color and produces a light weight product even though the yarn is bulky, the fine net construction of the tape type yarn makes it easy to damage. I am concerned about damage during wear for the same reason.

        I LOVE this yarn!

        By CMJ500

        from Oakland, CA

        Pros

        • Beautiful drape
        • Holds its shape

        Cons

        • Ends Keep Popping Out

        Best Uses

          Comments about Berroco Karma:

          I love this yarn and have knit top-down sweaters in every color available. This is the first cotton yarn I've found in a long time that is lightweight and holds its shape well, which is something I've found is not the case for most cottons. My only complaint is the ends pop out no matter how well I bury them. I went online and found a glue made especially for yarn and fabric. A little dab does the trick and the glue doesn't bleed through. Genius!

                  This is being used for an open weave sweater in process. Makes an attractive garment, but does split while knitting.

                          Comments about Berroco Karma:

                          This is lightweight yarn that knits up quickly. It makes a very comfortable material to wear in the humid VA summers. I have 3 tops I have knitted from Karma, all different, that I wear constantly. I wish it came in white or cream. (Berrocco, are you paying attention!?) I might try the canvas next. The only thing I don't like is that it splits easily when knitting.

                            Knit the Long Sands Cardigan by Amy Christoffers with this yarn. Originally orderd the yarn in July. Ran short by a skein so ordered one in October with a long shot request to match the dye lot. Webs came through!! Amazing. Sweater is finished and looks beautiful. Just enough stretch in the yarn for a fitted look. Wearing this cardigan feels like a hug.
