  62. I made a really pretty cardigan with Cascade 220. Unfortunately I didn't check my gauge so it is a little small. It was the first sweater I ever made and an educational experience.

Love the softness and stretch!

  64. My favourite Cascade project is the first sweater I knit without a pattern. It's in purple 220, a bit itchy, so I use it as an outside sweater, always worn over something. I love it. Top-down raglan with 3/4 length sleeves. Classic! Special mention goes to my first project EVER, a catnip whale knit out of Cascade 220 green heather. It's ripped almost to shreds but my cat still pulls it out of hiding now and again. It's a keeper! ~ knittingwithwords on Ravelry

  69. My first and only attempt at knitting argyle in the round was a hat (complete with ear flaps and a pompom on top) that I knit for my then boyfriend, now husband. Since then, I've been slowly adding to my Cascade stash for a "someday blanket." I'm currently working on a cotton log cabin blanket for my baby boy, but I would love to make a wool blanket to keep by the couch for family snuggles!

    ReplyDelete

  72. Hmm.. this one is kinda hard... I have a fondness for so many cascade products... EcoDuo.. EcoAlpaca... However, I did Ruby Red out of a Cascade book out earlier this year .. out of Cascade 128 SW.. very yummy.. made it bigger for ME.... and then a huge squishy log cabin throw out of MAGNUM... Extremely warm... Live in Texas, but I don't care.. it is a fabulous throw.

  76. The throw is gorgeous - I knitted a big Irish flag as a joke present for some rugby friends using Cascade 220 - the orange is perfect!
    It had its world première at Twickenham a couple of years ago at a Six nations match but during the celebrations that followed, the idiots left it in a pub. I have always wondered what happened to it. Bit like a Mayfly - it only lived for a day but what a day!It even appeared on TV during the match, talk about .15 seconds of fame.....
    I would take much better care of this lovely throw.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Mara shawls in sport superwash for my preschoolers - very cute

  162. My favorite Cascade yarn project is a tote I made from a Knitter's magazine pattern. It looked like patchwork and is felted. I made it in fall colors and took first prize at our county fair. I always get compliments whenever I use it.
