I bought two skeins - one almond, one pink - to make fun scarves for my nieces for Christmas using "Oh, Helen!" pattern. Each scarf finished to 4 1/2" x 54" after blocking. Quick easy knit on US7's. The only difficulty was weaving in the ends (I should have removed the sequins). I was concerned about the metallic being scratchy, but after wet blocking, it was soft.

Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Cristallo:

I purchased a scarf made with this yarn but the scarf is not as wide as I wanted. So I looked online until I found it. It is exactly what I wanted and I was pleased to find it as a reasonable price. It is very lightweight and a thin yarn. Occasionally I will get a snag and have to pull out a few stitches and redo. But all in all, it is perfect for my project. I love the bits of sparkle the tiny sequins add.

Best Uses

Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Cristallo:

This yarn has its own memory. Although it is slender weight, I had hard time picking up drop stitches and trying to correct my own mistakes. I recommend using big needles to force the yarn not to return to its original shape. The glitter yarn is the one that frays, no matter how careful you treat it.

Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Cristallo:

Has a beautiful sparkle when crocheted into a scarf. I found a scarf made from this yarn in a thrift shop. I looked all over for this yarn in town because the scarf I purchased made from this yarn was not wide enough. I was pleased to find this online and at a reasonable price. Because of the weight of the yarn, I used an "E" crochet needle and it is a little bit tricky to manage the yarn. But it is also easy to go back and correct a mistake.
