soft and comfortable

By Betsy

Comments about Berroco Abode:

I'm working on a jacket. Given the texture of the yarn, I'm keeping it simpler and only adding the cables as a border along the front of the open edges and maybe/probably to continue around the neck. The simple cable pattern actually works better than I thought it might. There is a heather effect, almost variegated, but in addition there is a deliberate unevenness in the width of the yarn. I wanted to try it for this reason. The look is becoming more casual than I had originally envisioned with the pattern I had chosen, which was more for a knitted jacket for the office. The ribbed bottom edge has softer lines and cannot be perfectly even. The cable pattern border adds some thickness, which is probably a good idea with this yarn if you keep it simple and aren't hoping for clean, sharp lines in your pattern.

        Comments about Berroco Abode:

        I love the texture and the softness of this yarn. The only con is that the skeins are so small so you end up having to join so many skeins to make a sweater.

          Comments about Berroco Abode:

          Pretty color and love the dye technique. That said, it's pretty light weight and a small skein for worsted weight yarn. I probably won't buy again.

          Comments about Berroco Abode:

          I made several hats as gifts at Christmas using the free Berroco pattern. It knitted up quickly. The variation in thickness added texture to the hat. The yarn is buttery soft. I'm allergic to wool and usually find it to be itchy. Not this yarn!
