Gorgeous

Comments about Cascade Yarns Magnum Paints:

I love Cascade Magnum for hats and scarves. This was the first time I had tried Magnum Paints. The colors are vibrant and lovely. HOWEVER... I didn't like how it looked when knitted — the "V" shape of the bright-colored stitches looked almost like a graphic design. So instead I tried crocheting it, using a Q hook. Fabulous! I made a gorgeous capelet in just two evenings.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns Magnum Paints:

    I made two pompom beanies and a headband out of one skein of Dark Berries. It's got neon pink, grape, gray, and black all blended together into what I call a little obnoxious but completely awesome color scheme. So soft and easy to work with, I used size US 15 bamboo needles.

    Not as soft as I hoped

    By CalifMom

    from DC

    Pros

    • Fast
    • Nice colorway

    Cons

    • Fuzzy
    • Not Soft

    Best Uses

    • Felting
    • Thick Stiff Projects

    Comments about Cascade Yarns Magnum Paints:

    I was disappointed (as a beginning knitter) at how stiff and not soft accessories turned out. I picked it because I knew I could finish a project quickly and get that rush of completion, but the giftee only wore the item a couple times (out of kindness, I fear). Love the color gradations, but it's just not soft enough for my folks.

    Great!

    Comments about Cascade Yarns Magnum Paints:

    I bought this to crochet a super bulky beanie. I love the yardage; I may be able to make 3 hats from one skein! I chose this yarn because the colors are beautiful and there are some great options in the variegated yarns that are more masculine. It is soft and a joy to work with!

    Great color combinations!

    Comments about Cascade Yarns Magnum Paints:

    I love working with the bulky yarn as I only need to use one strand to get a heavily felted item. The price was right compared to retail store cost. I didn't look at the yardage when purchasing and was hoping to get more than one project per hank.....that was my oversight and so wish I had ordered 2 of each because of that. I will definitely purchase this again.

    Knits up quick and easy. Nice colors. The red is very vibrant. Made some hats for Ohio State fans, they were a hit.
