It knits up quickly and has generous yardage at a good sale price.

Was disappointed in the mustard kismet...color didn't match that shown on web. Was planning to knit a scarf with it to match oo2 Flirt...but the 2 yarns don't match at all.
Yarn was soft and hung well, but colors were not to my liking...too dark for me.

Comments about 6.49 Kismet:

I often use this yarn as weft for scarves on my rigid heddle loom. It is perfect as a complement to a fancy novelty yarn. It is soft and lightweight, but has some bulk to it so I can use a very open beat without the fabric being sleazy. The result is a very light and drapeable scarf.

Kismet yarn

By none

from Gettysburg, Pa. 17325

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Great wool but very thin for making sweaters

Cons

  • Pattern sent by daughter using Kismet. Very hard

Best Uses

    Comments about 6.49 Kismet:

    Perhaps it is just my age, but the dark blue Kismet is extremely hard to see to knit. I bought a lighter color and will try to gauge it, but so far the size 7 needle suggested gives me a 3 inch square. #8 gives a 3 1/2 inch and Now I am trying a #9. Which if it measures 4 inches will make a very very loose knit for the sweater pattern suggested. Just to thin for me.

      • Reasonably Priced

      • Scarves

      Comments about 6.49 Kismet:

      I used this yarn to make some lightweight scarves. It's a pleasure to knit with. I used size 7 needles for an airy fabric with great drape. The mottled colors are beautiful. The yarn fuzzes a bit but it wasn't a huge problem.
