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.

    I made a scarf out of this and it came out great! The base color is lovely, and the different colors in the sequins allows you to mix and match it with a variety of outfits.

          Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Cristallo:

          Knitted very dressy shawlette. Lovely drape on size 9 needle. Good yardage. Splitty if you use pointy 'lace' needles. Be gentle -- sequins are on a very fine thread and can come off. Don't bother knitting nupps if you use black -- you can't see them!

          Service and delivery comments:

          Paid extra for 2 day delivery and got it in almost exactly 48 hours! Thanks.
