I am using this to make an afghan with a feather and fan pattern. The striping is not so colorful that the pattern gets lost. It has good stitch definition and is not too drapey or stretchy for a large heavy project. I am a little disappointed that it is not as soft as I expected, but it may soften a bit when washed. It is easy to knit with and would be a good choice for a beginner. It is the thinnest chunky weight yarn I have ever met. However, that is no big deal with this project. I just used a smaller needle and bought some extra yarn. At this sale price you could afford to whip up a couple of afghans for the price of one. But I don't think I would ever trust it to substitute for another yarn on an item where guage actually mattered like clothing. Stick to blankets and shawls with this one.

I was very dismayed to receive this yarn, both from the same source and dye lot, only to notice a considerable difference in color intensity. I cannot use these 2 skeins for the same garment without alternating rows from one skein and the other..Other than the color issue I loved the softness and will find a project for a single skein

      I used this yarn for my first big project. I was looking for a good value for the number of skeins I needed. With the beautiful color, price, and ease to work with it was a good choice.

        I wasn't sure if I would like this yarn but you know it made up into a beautiful winter hat that I promptly sent to my elderly mom. She loved the pink colors and the nice stretch. I would recommend this highly!

            Comments about JAMES C. BRETT Lakeland Chunky:

            It is my second sweater made from Brett yarn. Both worked up really nicely. Since I am new to swater knitting I love that this is so affordable. Also I felt the pattern was very clear they supplied with this yarn. I knitted it for my granddaughter for her birthday this month who is pregnant and am thrilled with it. The self striping was interesting and made it more fun.
