    Lovely light worsted yarn

    Posted by Nancy Taylor on Jul 05, 2017

    I love Cascade 220. The superwash version comes in nice balls that you don't have to wind. The weight is a light worsted or could be considered a heavy DK. Wonderful to work with. My only caveat is to make sure to do a test swatch that you wet block first. This yarn tends to "grow" on you after blocking, so that may influence the size of the garment you wish to make. Happy knitting (or crocheting)!
