  1. My favorite crochet project in Cascade Yarns would be the toys I make for my cat using 220 Superwash. Sometimes they are crochet, sometimes they are knit, and sometimes they use both. (The main things I crochet are actually done using embroidery floss, as even lace yarn is too large.) I have a crocheted belt in 220 Superwash that's still in the concept stage. Hope to get to it some day!

  10. My favorite projects in Cascade yarn(s) are the sweaters, hats and leg warmers I make for my 2-year-old granddaughter. I'm looking forward to the day that I can teach her to knit, so we can create things together!

    1. And, I meant to add that my future favorite project is going to be this neck warmer. My grandmother died in 1973. Until a month ago, I had no mementos. Then, out of the blue, a cousin sent me two of my grandmother's headscarves. They're beautiful and could be warn on their own, but would be even lovelier showcased in this beautifully designed pattern. Thank you, Kristen, for writing it!

  20. I've never used the Cascade Yarns, but would certainly like to. I make a lot of baby afghans, and have been making afghans for Christmas gifts this year. I want to make some scarfs, and shawls. Maybe this is the year to use. Thanks for the chance to win some.

  21. My favorite project to make with Cascade yarns is Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Surprise Jacket in Cascade Superwash 220. So yummy soft for baby, and washable for mom!

    I don't crochet often, but if I were to crochet something with Cascade yarns, it would be the Moderne Jacket (Lion Brand pattern).
