      Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Tempo:

      I love this yarn! I bought it a couple of years ago and made a simple tee pattern provided by the brand.
      I have gotten so many compliments on it I decided to make another one in another colorway. It was hard to choose, there were so many. It's a sturdy yarn and has kept its shape. I plan to make pillow covers with it. I also like it worked in stockinette and reverse stockinette.

          I made the Lido Drop Stitch Scarf and the only problem I had was the cast on side rolled terribly. Hopfully I blocked it well enough that the yarn will stay flat.

            I used this to make a scarf as a gift. It was soft, and enjoyable to work with. I really like the graduated color changes. WEBS is still the best retailer that I can't praise enough. For an internet site, they gave me personal quick serve. What a delight!

              I used this yarn for a cropped 3/4 length sleeved sweater. It worked up quickly and the self stripping was impressive. It is soft and fast to knit. I couldn't find any negatives.

              Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Tempo:

              I chose a pattern written for this yarn "Taormina Circle Vest". I did fine with the stockinet center of the vest, but the lace part was pure agony as the nubs and slubs in the yarn caused me to drop a lot of stitches sometimes not discovered until several rows later. Very frustrating!!!!!!

              I've made several scarves with this yarn. Each color offers a different variation. I finish them off with novelty yarn fringe. It makes a great take along project & terrific gift. Fun to work with.

              I have knitted several of the sweaters in the book of instructions for this yarn. They come out beautifully with interesting stripes. The yarn has a tendency to catch on the needle so progress is slow but worth it.
