    I find Kudo fun to work with. Have bought it several times. My only draw back is that it tends to twist quite a bit, so I have found it easier to crochet than knit. I love the unexpected color combinations and the fact that the stripes are often totally random. Keeps your interest alive throughout the project. You would be hard pressed to create the same object twice. This picture shows a slouch I crocheted using Kudo #54.

    I received 2 skeins in a 'mystery' bag and purchased a third to complete the shrug I was making. All three skeins had the same problems. Thickness is listed as Worsted but ran from lace to roving and I frequently had issues with it pulling apart forcing me to rip out stitches to weave in new ends. It twisted up frequently no matter what I tried to prevent it. I also found pieces of hay throughout all three skeins, some as long as a 1/4". As most of the pieces had clearly been dyed it wasn't a case of picking it up from a display setting. This was the worst yarn I've ever worked with.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Kudo:

      Yes, it tends to twist. The solution, pull out several feet at a time.

      Yes, it will break if you stress it too much. Solution, knit looser. I am doing cables and have had no problems.

        I was all excited to knit a scarf with Kudo but had to give up after my yarn kept breaking anytime I put the slightest tension on it. Very disappointed.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Kudo:

          I use this doubled -- pulling from both ends of the skein -- to make beanie-type hats for sale to people who are allergic to wool.

          I love the colorways, but find that it is "sticky" when pulling from both ends and tends to tangle up. It is a minor problem, relatively, but is why this yarn gets only four stars from me.

            Although the colorways of this yarn are lovely, this yarn breaks so easily I sent it back. It was breaking it when I had it on the swift and ball-winder! That was my first clue. It even broke when I was casting on. Not worth investing time into knitting a sweater with this yarn.

            I wanted a light weight self striping yarn and not noro. This yarn is great and wool free. It is knitting nicely for a top down sweater. I am doing sleeves two at a time and it was easy to match up and the striping is beautiful. It should be a great summer sweater.

            Using this yarn for a circular swirl shawl and also for a sweater. Both are coming out beautifully. The striping is working well within the garment
