        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.

              I made a hat with this yarn and while I was knitting the yarn broke three times and I used maybe half of the skein. I do like the texture and feel of the yarn as well as the colors.

              disappointing

              Comments about Cascade Yarns Casablanca:

              I purchased this yarn hoping it would be an inexpensive substitute for a Noro project. Wow, was I wrong. The texture was rough and cheap feeling, and the skeins were full of knots and breaks. Despite the fiber content it lacked that touch of luxury you might expect from silk and mohair. The colors were surprisingly dull and lifeless and did not consort happily together. The overall effect was "blah." I've tried it with different needles and stitches, hoping against hope that I can find another use for this stuff. Casablanca has cured me of buying yarns online, sight unseen. Henceforth I will only buy yarns I have met personally. This was an expensive mistake, but I will put it down to a "learning experience." Be careful.

              This yarn is easy to work with - I'm making a jacket and trying to get the yarns to kind of match across the front and back. It's an interesting yarn. I've been to Casablanca a few times and thought I'd work with the yarn having the same name.

                                I loved using this yarn. I combined it with a silk mohair which gave the yarn a beautiful halo. I made leg warmers for my daughter. So pretty. And warm.
