Liane finished our Tuzo cardigan last week, and it turned out beautifully! The pattern is from Berroco #293 Vintage Family, and we used the prescribed Berroco Vintage. I had some reservations about this kind of blended fiber, but we really needed to work with the yarn to get the feel for how it behaves, and this little cardie was a perfect experiment.
I am glad to report back that the Vintage behaves really beautifully. It is easy and nice to knit with, and knits up lovely. It has a soft sheen that a pure wool like Cascade 220 (comparable price) does not, which lends the final product a slightly more polished air. It is very soft and gives off a slight aura or halo when knit. The heathered colours also have a beautiful depth when knit (we used 5182 Black Currant).
As always, you can find us at Knitomatic.com!
