I knit the free Crystal Palace pattern Rainbow Trout (with the yarn color of the same name) for my grandson. The colors are very nice. The yarn was easy to knit with. The pattern is super fast and easy to knit. I may get another color or two and knit him a small school of fish - and for a small one - the yarn is machine washable too! Am very happy with this super cute pattern. My first time knitting with the Mochi Plus and like it a lot (the only change I made while knitting this pattern is I used my sz. 6 Inox needles - went down a size - so the stuffing would be less likely to peek through.
I made the diagonal scarf that is on Crystal Palaces web site. I like to use Mochi plus and Mini Mochi for scarfs. The have great color placement and a nice feel in the hand. I do not like the way it goes from thin to thick. I have made socks out of it but they did not ware well. I have used it for gloves and hats and have had no trouble.I always love to see what color is coming up next.
I love this yarn! I have made a huge shawl in entrelac with this yarn in the violets and a small scarf in entrelac in strawberries and lime. It works up great and the colors are just amazing. I have to order more because all my friends who don't knit want something knit with this yarn...... Super yarn! I love Crystal Palace yarns anyway, but this one is just super!
My SIL saw a hat knitted in this yarn and asked for it. This was the first time I used the yarn and I will be using it again. It's great to work with. I made a hat each with this yarn and with Moreno stripes. They both were wonderful yarns.
