Good value and cute project Review by Margaret

Ease of Use

Bought this yarn in 2 different "girlie" colours for my niece's twins. The blankets are adorable and I had enough left to knit 2 small matching sweaters. They made great looking, inexpensive shower gifts

Very disappointed Review by Karin

Ease of Use

I have now knit 3 blankets with this yarn. I was very disappointed with the last one. It is the Citrus Fruits colour. I really like the orange in it but I don't like that there are "splotches" of orange in almost every other colour throughout the whole ball of yarn. I'm not sure what I'll do with the finished product as it isn't worthy of giving as a gift as I had planned. I will not be ordering this yarn again.

Very nice Review by Susan

I purchased the peach colour. It seemed a little bright in the ball but as I knitted the blanket, the colour was fine. I only has one knot at the end of the ball when I was casting off.

I will purchase this yarn again

Not pretty Review by Sue

This blanket needs to be edged in a solid colour.

The knot and missing yarn made the stripes unevn.

I was a bit worried seeing some of the other reviews for this yarn so I bought it on sale. My yarn had no knots so it knit up beautifully and I am really happy with the result :)

Easy but disappointed Review by Karin

I ordered this in green and was pleasantly surprised that it was a nice green, not lime. The disappointment was in the quality of the colour of the dark green...it looks like it's variegated with yellow. Then there was a knot but that was close to the end so it didn't disrupt the pattern. I was still disappointed that there was a knot. It also isn't very soft since it is a baby blanket. I will still be giving it to our great grandchild.

MM: Thank you for your review. The darker green does have yellow in as is the case with each of the colours. Unfortunately, knots, do happen as these balls are wound from huge cones of yarn and can break when being would into the smaller balls. The yarn will soften up when it is washed following the directions on the ball band.

Easy pattern, interesting yarn until I had knots in it Review by Kathy

Ease of Use
Quality

The patterns is so easy I actually felt a bit ripped off paying for it. It's simply knit one row, purl one row, always knitting the first 7 stitches of the row.

I was excited to try the self-patterning yarn, and was happy enough until 3/4 of the way into the skein. That's when I had a knot, and now the patterning is all off. The colour change isn't what it's supposed to be and doesn't match the patterning of the rest of the blanket.

I'm making this for a gift and don't have time to start a different blanket. I hope the young mom won't notice the errors in the yarn as she isn't a knitter and I think will just appreciate the blanket.

I am tempted to request a refund because it really wasn't worth the cost of the kit, and shipping, and now this issue.

Knots Review by Karen

Very poor quality of yarn. 2 knots, and i'm not talented enough to match the yarn so finished blankie looks a tad strange.

Not happy with knots in self patterning yarn or the colours Review by Judy
Ease of Use

Price

In the self patterning yarn for this product there were two knots. On the other side of the knot, the yarn did not correspond with the pattern so a lot of yarn was wasted finding the correct place so the pattern was uniform.
I was also very disappointed with the colour of the yarn. In the catalogue it showed a pale pink and a raspberry shade. The yarn I received was a bright pink and a peach. Not nearly as attractive as the photo advertised. A very disappointing purchase.
