    I have used this yarn to design two patterns - for a scarf and for a hat. It is delightful to work with, though is sticky if you need to rip. I was amazed at how incredibly soft the finished products were while still having the wonderful sparkle. Most sparkly yarns are a little scratchy due to the glitz - not this one. One of my favorite yarns.

    I purchased yarn to knit the Flicker Ruffled Scarf. Bought 6 skeins @ 189 yds ea. Project called for 5 skeins & I bought 1 extra. There were 3 to 4 breaks in 5 out of the 6 skeins. Due to 600 plus stitches in every row of ruffle, I could only knit 2 or 3 rows before the yarn was completely separated - not even attached. That along w/ occasional knotted spots, made this difficult to complete project. Loved the feel & sparkle of the Flicker yarn itself, but Berroco needs to correct this spinning problem.

      Comments about Berroco Flicker:

      I have used this yarn for hats, scarves and cowls. It makes up beautifully with that little bit of sparkle, is so soft, holds the shape, and is so warm. Hopefully this metallic aspect will be added to a 4-ply yarn.

          Comments about Berroco Flicker:

          This yarn crocheted up quick to make a headband and matching scarf. I used the black w silver flicker which created just enough sparkle for the intended recipient. I liked the yarn so much I bought it up in some other colors. The plan is to make wraps and shawls for myself and some co workers.

            I have now knitted 3 cabled hats, a cabled cowl, and several pairs of fingerless mitts with this yarn. My hat knitted with Flicker is my warmest hat.

            It is one of the softest yarns that you will ever touch! It's like knitting with a warm, cozy cloud. The small sparkles of bling are tasteful & pretty. I highly recommend this yarn.

              Used this to make three infinity scarves for Christmas gifts, and they all came out beautiful! The little bit of sparkle makes them stand out, and all the recipients kept saying how soft the yarn was. It does stretch a bit, so you'd have to watch your gauge if you were making a sweater, but I never worry about that with scarves :-)

                The only problem I had was that the color of the yarn shown in the site picture is not the true color of the yarn in person. I have ordered three different colors & all are darker than the picture. Pretty colors but not what is represented.

                    I knit a scarf with Flicker for my daughter. She is still thanking me saying she has received many compliments. She likes its softness. And the bits of glitter make it a little bit dressy.

                      I have used this yarn to design two patterns - for a scarf and for a hat. It is delightful to work with, though is sticky if you need to rip. I was amazed at how incredibly soft the finished products were while still having the wonderful sparkle. Most sparkly yarns are a little scratchy due to the glitz - not this one. One of my favorite yarns.
