      Not up to gauge

        I bought this yarn to make mittens. I was knitting them 2 at a time, magic loop, with 2 skeins . I had to take one mitten off the needles and do 5 extra rows on size 8 needles , just to even up 3 inch cuffs. This yarn goes from an Aran weight to a sport.

        The amount of trash I have pulled from this yarn is unbelievable .

        I would not recommend . If you do buy it , get extra , because the gauge listed for yarn is way off. I usually have to go down 2 needle sizes as I knit too loosely.

        • Breaks easily
        • Very Unevenly Spun

        Best Uses

        • Afghans
        • Scarves
        • Sweaters

        Comments about Rowan Colourscape Chunky by Kaffe Fassett:

        I used this yarn to make a large afghan. The color variegation is truly beautiful - long stretches of color that worked well for the large color blocks in the afghan. Not too itchy for 100% lambswool, so that's nice. My only big beef is that the consistency of yarn weight was not good. I know to expect some variance, but this yarn is listed as "5" bulky weight, but varies all the way from sport to super chunky.

            I used this for a multi texture scarfette. The colorway was beautiful. The only drawback to this yarn is the price, which keeps me from using it on bigger projects.

              I am making an Afghan with this yarn. This was the last colour I needed to finish my project. I would also make a bulky sweater with the yarn, as it is nice to work with. The colours are so vibrant and blend so beautifully with each other. I will be buying more for future projects. Thanks!

                Love the look and the effect you get with this yarn. I do have concerns, however, that it literally pulls apart. Do not tug on this yarn or you will have two skeins. Makes me nervous about its durability.
