Knitting at my usual gauge made a dense, unappealing fabric that felt like chain mail. This yarn feels more like cord. I kept experimenting, using much larger needles, because the color and sheen were so nice. The gauzy sweater that resulted has a different look than what I had envisioned, but I'm satisfied with how it turned out. Consistant, firm tension is essential with a slippery yarn that doesn't stretch like this one--I wouldn't recommend it for inexperienced knitters.

One of my favorite yarns

Comments about BERROCO Mykonos:

I returned to knitting after 30 years and started with Mykonos yarn. It can be challenging to work with. I found hand winding and storing in yarn ball holder (Micheals carries a nice zipper top one) to be a good solution as the ball tends to unwind. Stitches can slippery but I've found success with wood or carbon needles. Mykonos is lively and bright, even in the subdued colors, and never splits.

Comments about BERROCO Mykonos:

This yarn comes in lovely colors. It's very easy on the hands as long as you keep your hands well lotioned. The fine gauge looks wonderful in stockinette and garter stitch and the fabric is lovely and drapes well. I love this yarn for my beloved self fringing shawls!

So far I have used this yarn in two projects, and I may use it again. It can be a bit challenging, but the end product is worth it.

      Very nice yarn for light garments

      Comments about BERROCO Mykonos:

      Somewhat slippery to knit with, be careful with dropped stitches, which ladder quickly! Finished product is gorgeous, light, airy with a lovely sheen. I would recommend it for light summer garments!

      The results are spectacular but the silky yarn was slippery and I had trouble not dropping stitches.
