    This yarn is good for children's sweaters. It's a good weight, very soft, machine washable and drapes nicely. I wish it came in more colors. This is my own pattern, top down seamless. The best thing about this little cardigan is not its appearance, but how soft it is. My grandchildren were all pleased with softness, so even though they are now too old to knit for, I still love the very softest yarns. This is the first time that I've used a larger size of needles for the fair isle in a sweater, and it worked well.
