I went down 2 sizes on the needles and knit loosely. That way I had no problems with yarn breaking. I have done 3 cowls with it and it worked well. Striking color patterns when knitted! Not a yarn with drape so I used patterns which I wanted with a bit more firm result.

i made a simple lace scarf with this and the finished product was pretty and the colors lovely, but knitting with it was a pain. The yarn is far too fragile -- especially if there is a chance you might have to frog even the least little bit to correct an error. I had to make 4 felt joins in one skein when the yarn unexpectedly broke on me because it got tugged on for several different reasons. And these tugs were nothing out of the ordinary and the same kind of tugs I would give any kind of yarn and expect it to hold up! I've never worked with a yarn this flimsy before and hope I don't have too again.

              So far I've made 2 cowls & have 3 more to go. Love the yarn & the results of the cowls. My only complaint was that the yarn split in one place and I have to knot it, and one skein didn't have enough yarn to complete the cowl as I did with the first one I made. Loved the yarn though & the cowl pattern. I'm sure it will be a greatly appreciated gift at Christmastime.

                    Right up there with Noro, in my book. And no knots found so far (unlike Noro).

                    I happen to love color and will not work with a color I don't like, therefore I chose the muted range of blues. It is a pleasure to work with this yarn.

                    Comments about Cascade Yarns Casablanca:

                    I bought some Casablanca to knit a vest for someone who prefers simple, colorful garments and who lives in a warm climate, thinking it might have a similar hand to, but less weight than, cotton. The yarn is not soft, contrary to the description, but quite crisp. The silk adds great color and slubs, and gives the fabric a dry hand, but since it has a lot of wool, it will be much warmer and more elastic than cotton, especially in the ribbed knitting of the pattern I've chosen. I don't see much evidence of the mohair, either in softness or halo.
                    I am not having any breakage problems (I generally knit loosely, and did also go down two needle sizes to make gauge), but the yarn has a LOT of twist, and I have to let my knitting hang to un-twist every few rows. This may have been the mfr's response to breakage problems, as it feels quite sturdy. I think it will work fine for the simple vest I'm knitting (although she may have to save the vest for winter), but I'm not enamored with the yarn enough to use it again.

                          This yarn is what I call "dirty", meaning that the wool wasn't combed well enough before spinning. Now there are "pricklies" in it, tiny bits of plant matter, that rub over the finger and are prickly. This distracts me from knitting because I always stop and try to get them out!
                          I like the colorway of this yarn a lot.

                          Comments about Cascade Yarns Casablanca:

                          I was attracted to the Casablanca because of its lovely color variations and could hardly wait to get my hands on it. Imagine how surprised and disappointed I was when it came apart on my third stitch! It happened so often that I finally realized that this yarn needs special care and loose knitting tension. I finally was able to adjust and it calmed down too. However, I didn't finish my project because I had to knit so slowly and carefully.
                          I'm surprised that a product so defective would come from Cascade, as I've never had problems with their yarns before. I really hope they can produce another lovely-colored yarn like this, only this time with a stronger weave.

                          I believe this is a yarn to be discontinued so I was lucky enough to purchase it at a great price. I got the colorway, Forest, and it's very beautiful. I purchased 15 skeins so I have enough for a sweater or vest and more.
