This was lovely to knit, and the self-striping properties made it interesting and fun to work with. Gorgeous yarn. Already bought more!
This is a great yarn for a hat or cowl with a simple pattern. The yarn does all the work. It's great fun to watch the stripes appear. I'm on my 3rd Scraptastic cowl-this one is likely mine. The other two will make lovely gifts!
I purchased this yarn when Janet sent out a BOGO sale with a challenge to try something different. Wow am I glad I did! I love the bold colors and the self-striping. The yarn is soft, shiny and nice to work with. I made 1 cowl with the pattern recommended and the second one with a different patterns on needles now. I would love to see the store carry some of the solid colors of this yarn to pair with the self-striping yarn . . . Could make for some beautiful projects.
