      Comments about 10.00 Pinwheel:

      I get that this is at the budget end of Cascade's line, but even then it's disappointing. The yarn is stiff and cheap feeling, and really no better than something like Red Heart. I bought this specifically to make hats to donate to the NICU, and I won't be buying it again. I often use Cascade yarns for NICU hats, but after making a couple with Pinwheel, I'm worried that they will be too scratchy for the preemies to wear.

        Comments about 10.00 Pinwheel:

        This yarn has long color variations that are just lovely. It is very soft for acrylic and the beautiful, long color variations not only hold your interest while knitting, but transform the simplest pattern into a work of art. The easy care is great for children's garments, too! That is what I used it for. Made cardigans for my great-nieces with matching doll cardigans. They loved them!

        This is a fabulous yarn for scarves. I used the purple & blues to make a broomstick scarf for a friend & it turned out beautiful. I will have a skein in every color before long.

        Knotty

        By Baby Knitter

        from Keene, NH

        Pros

        • Colorful
        • Soft

        Cons

        • Knotty

        Best Uses

        • Baby Knits
        • Small items

        Comments about 10.00 Pinwheel:

        I purchased one skein, so I don't really know if all skeins would be like this, but it is extremely knotty. The color runs are long, which is the only thing that is making it useful now, because I will end up separating the yarn by color run and using the segments to knit small items such as baby hats.

        Comments about 10.00 Pinwheel:

        This is a really fun yarn to use for baby items, both large and small. The yardage and the long colorways make it great for blankets, but the colors also make it a lot of fun to use for smaller things like hats, since it stripes up in really fun ways. I've found a few knots, but all in all it's a great yarn.
