I really like Cascade 220. I made myself 2 felted purses from it, made my 7 year old a felted purse and matching drawstring bag for her birthday with it, and with the leftovers from that just recently made her fingerless gloves (which she often wears to bed!). I have several shades of yellows/oranges in my stash that I bought just because I loved the colors. Thanks for the opportunity to win! Love your patterns and your podcast!

Love 220. Its such a workhorse.

cmflame said...

I've used Cascade 220 for many projects: hats, scarves, mittens, and socks. I use the superwash for gifts to non-knitters so they don't end up with a felted present. I don't have a favorite color, since they have just about every color I can always find what I need.

Lucy said...

I've used Cascade 220 once to knit a hat for my grandpa. It feels nice in the hand, I love holding it. I'm certainly going to use it more. I also want to check out its superwash version. Love your podcasts and this giveaway.

Ixchel said...

Great giveaway! I love cascade 220, use it mostly for soakers and it really works out well. I didn't learn until recently how many colors they really have, can't wait to try them all!

Jani Brattin said...

I am currently using Cascade 220 Superwash. I love the look, feel and the way it works up. It is by far my favorite yarn so far. I've not tried the other Cascade yarns but I plan to. It is perfect for knitting toddler clothes! Warm, clean, and just feels soft and wonderful next to your skin. I use the black, gray and white colorways. My email is janibrat58@yahoo.com and my name is Jani Brattin, I plan to suscribe to your blog as there is so much life and things going on it would be fun to follow. Thank you for this opportunity

knitwish said...

I have recently started a sweater for my DH using 220 superwash, in the bluevelvet, ruby red, turquoise and black colors. I have also got a Hogwarts Gryffindor scarf on the needles in Cascade 220, red and gold colors. I enjoy both yarns.

goldenbird said...

Several years ago my sister gave me a gift certificate for our LYS at a holiday gift and I bought a couple skeins of Cascade 220. I ended up using it for a pair of slippers and liked it very much. Thanks for the giveaway!

I've been using a lot of Cascade 220 this Christmas...for hats, mitts, scaves, etc.

I love your podcast and I follow Melynda's blog. :) Two favorites together. What could be better. Off to listen to your podcast.

I love this yarn - there is a reason it hits the list on

Monique said...

I love cascade 220! I is great for so many different projects. I have never felted anything before and have been looking at that slippers pattern and wondering if I can do that.

terip said...

i have always wanted to make this slippers, i love them, i love cascade i use t all the time, felted slippers, sweaters for the kids, mittens.......it is my go to all around yarn.

Rosie said...

I'm new to Cascade 220 and I don't think it is as "rough" as some have described. In fact I used it to make a stroller blanket for a friend's new baby and it is very soft to the touch. The price and color options are amazing and the stitch definition is great. I'm planning a sweater project with 220 next. Oh and I love my pink French Press slippers; it was a super easy pattern and a good start for novice felters like me.

Linda said...

I've never used it, but I would love to try it! Thanks for the chance to win it and the great looking patterns!

Maxine said...

I love Cascade 220. It's my go-to yarn.

Laura said...

I love Cascade 220 yarn!I think I have used it more than any other yarn.It felts wonderfully and has an amazing color selection.
Thanks for such a generous giveaway.

Kara said...

I don't know Cascade 220, but I have definitely had my eye on those slippers... I was trying to restrain since I'm doing a little bit too much Christmas shopping for myself these days....Also, congrats on the pattern! Beautiful!

rainberry said...

I love Cascade 220. I've made two sweaters out of it, including a Central Park Hoodie which is my new favorite sweater.

I have never used Cascade 220 so have no useful opinions to offer. But I would be happy to give it a try!

Mrs. Pivec said...

I've used Cascade 220 in various blankets, hats, and shawls. It's an excellent, soft yarn. I don't have a favorite colorway, because I don't beleive I've seen all of them!

Darci said...

As a lover of all things felted - Cascade 220 is the very best of choices. I made a great laptop case in heather gray, pink and orange. I get so many compliments.

darah said...

Robin said...

vickyknit said...

Oh yeah, I want to make those slippers!

Louise said...

What a great giveaway! I've never tried Cascade 220 - it's impossible to find in Australia :) I love your new pattern as well :)

emmy said...

My favorite use for Cascade 220 is felting. I used it for my first "adult" knitting project which was a red felted bag with a fun fur border around the top. I gifted it to my Mom as she was the one that taught me to knit. thanks for a great giveaway.

Sara Kathryn said...

Oh my goodness! That is a truly beautiful blue! The sweater looks like a really fun knit and the slippers look amazing!

-Sara Kathryn

Megan said...

Beautiful color and beautiful yarn!

Ruby said...

What a lovely giveaway. I have been making some toys with Cascade 220 and a few baby blankets. It is a good yarn for many things. I love the felted slippers. Thanks for another giveaway.

Marissa said...

Cascade 220 is one of my favorite go-to workhorse yarns! I love that I can get any color I want in the same pretty, dependable yarn at such a reasonable price. I am currently using 3 skeins of a lovely dark blue to make a little swingy cardigan for myself.

Sarah P said...

I have never used Cascade 220, but I have already looked at both patterns to make and I love the colorway in the photo.

Sarah said...

I love Cascade 220! I've made two sweaters and many, many accessories using that yarn. It's such a good value. I also just seamed my first pair of French Press slippers! Now for the felting.....

Lisa said...

I have never used the cascade 220 in a project, but I have drooled over some of the great colors in the yarn store!

Tina said...

Would love to make the slippers for my mother!

Jods said...

I love Cascade 220. Everytime I pick it up after a using other yarns. I can't help but feel the fabric it makes and think Oh, yes...this is why I love this yarn! There is something about it!

knitwork said...

I have never used Cascade 220 because I don't get it here. I would love to try it though.

Gillian said...

I have never used Cascade 220 before, but after hearing your review and doing some of my own investigation, I'm really excited to try it out. I love wools, so I can imagine that my favorite colorway would be something like the Peruvian Highland wool colorway 9563--I love deep foresty/sage greens.

Kaylee said...

I Love the sweater and I have always wanted to try Cascade 220. Thanks for this giveaway.

Mount Gigantic said...

Cascade 220 is the yarn I use most, though it's harder to find since moving to England. I especially love the heathers. I made my first sweater, a Buttony, from a beautiful green-gold colorway. It's such a great price, too. It should be in everyone's knitting arsenal :)

Helen Knits said...

I love Cacade 220 it's gorgeous and soft and a great colour range. I also love the Frech slipper pattern but I've never done felting before so I am a bit apprehensive about knitting one but will give it a try soon.

FlauschiOhren said...

I don't know if you are willing to possibly ship to Germany, if you are not - just ignore this comment =)
I've just received my first batch of Cascade 220 and I love it. Didn't start knitting with it yet but the feel and look of this yarn is great. I love that it's not Merino - somehow everything seems to be Merino these days...
I don't have a favourite colourway and I had a hard time picking a colour, they were all so lovely and there were so many.

susanlavonne said...

I just discovered your podcast this week and am loving it! I used Cascade 220 for my first knitting project so it holds a bit of nostalgia for me :)

Karen said...

Cascade 220 has such beautiful colors and is perfect for fingerless mitts. Your sweater pattern is really lovely, and those buttons, love them...

knitting chaos said...

Wow, that is a nice giveaway. i love Cascade 220.

Ann said...

I've only recently "discovered" Cascade 220, and have used it and the 220 Superwash for a few projects. I find it very nice to work with, has a nice "bounce" to it & good stitch definition. Since it comes in almost any color one could think of, I'd say my favorite colorway would simply be my favorite color(s) of blue, green, and red -- but don't ask me to pick a shade!

Tracey said...

I love cascade 220. I'm making fingerless mitts with my navy skein. They're a great knit and the yarn is great. A wonderful change from the soft yarns I'm used to knitting up. Thanks for the giveaway!

dramachic0425 said...

Cascade 220 is the perfect workhorse yarn that is all wool. So many colors, and great stitch definition.
Thanks for the giveaway! Merry Christmas!

I just love this giveaway. Cascade 220 is such great yarn, and I have been looking at the French Press slippers for a long time.

Michelle said...

What a beautiful color of yarn! I want!

susan said...

love love love cascade and the pattern! i am waiting for my lys to get it in!!

Megan said...

I have used cascade 220 for a sweater vest. It is a little scratchy to be worn next to the skin, but for outer layers, you can't beat the price and color choices! Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

Susan J. said...

I am a big fan of Cascade 220 and I have made 6 or 7 pairs of the FPK slippers - a great hit with all recipients! I would love to make your sweater - it is too cute.

Allison said...

I have used Cascade 220 a couple of times, for some leg warmers and also for a blanket. It is a great staple yarn, and I love the colorways. My blanket is in the color Turtle, and I love it. :)

Kelly J. R. said...

I have a stash of Cascade 220 that I plan to use for a cardigan otherwise I haven't used it before. I'm looking forward to starting a project with it.

Bonnie said...

I recently knit a sweater out of Cascade 128, and I've made kneesocks out of 220. It's a great yarn!

Janeen Puckett said...

Thanks for your always great podcast and this great opportunity to win awesome yarn!

Me please!

Andrea said...

I've used Cascade 220 for some mittens and was amazed at how much yarn was left over. I gave it to a friend who used it to make a hat and there's STILL yarn left over.

Tanya said...

I LOVE Cascade 220. I've used it on some hats and mittens and especially love the wide range of colors available.

Kel said...

I am just starting to use Cascade 220 for a sweater that I am going to start after the insane holiday knitting is over with. I look forward to trying it out. I got a dark chocolate brown, but I love so many other colors.

Madeline said...

How lovely! I would love to have some Cascade 220 and the patterns.

I love the slipper pattern. I have it and have made it twice but a signed copy would be extra special. I am probably the only knitter that have not used cascade 220, but I plan to.

Marilyn said...

I love Cascade 220! There are so many colors to choose from, it's a great price, and it's pleasant to work with. I also really like Cascade 220 Superwash. I still usually handwash knits whether they're superwash or not, but I like that extra reassurance when I don't want something to felt. Thanks for the giveaway!

My Tiny World said...

Please count on me! I use Cascade 220 all the time! it's wonderful!

Nadine said...

I use Cascade 220 for my felted projects. I love to take two contrasting colors and use a mosaic pattern. When felted, it creates a very unique fabric. Lots of compliments. I have admired the French press slippers since Yarn Harlot brought them to our attention.

AMReed said...

I am new to the knitting scene and haven't had the opportunity to work with Cascade 220 yet. I can't decide which color to be my first purchase! Hmm... Jade or regal purple... I don't know which one would look better as my first pair of mittens.

Kirsty said...

Cascade 220 is lovely - I've knitted a cardi and the Bella mittens in it. I love the heathered greens :)

Your newest design is lovely and i love the fact it has a wide age range :)

Diane said...

What a pretty blue. That would make a very cute pair of slippers.

Tallulah said...

I have never used Cascade 220 because I live in Europe and it's not easily available here, but I've heard it's a good, solid and affordable yarn which comes in lots and lots of colours. Sounds good to me! Thankyou for the giveaway.

Please enter me into the contest- love the Casdade yarn and dying to try the slippers- Thanks

I love Cascade 220, it felts up so consistently! Denise Harro

Megan said...

Cascade has become my new staple! It's got gorgeous colors and after knitting a baby blanket and realizing that it's cozy and soo touchable I'm using it for everything!

Tammy said...

Would love this! I have been looking at the slipper pattern for quite some time!

Mary said...

I'm so glad that I stumbled across your website. I like reading your posts, and love your patterns! I just finished my first sweater (I used your playful stripes pattern) and look forward to my next project

Pamela said...

I love cascade 220 and have a pinky-purple-y colorway in the "heathers" that I keep changing my mind about what to use it for :)

One Sheep said...

Cascade 220 is something I seldom have in my stash - at least not for very long. It's one of my standartd yarns, that I get when I know exactly what I want it for, and I'm ready to start now. I know I don't have to wory about limited color choices or availablity with this yarn.

Karey said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I would love to make some of the slippers...

Debbie said...

I love Cascade 220. I 've made wonderful hats eith it. thanks! Debbie in Alaska

KatieB said...

I know so many people who adore Cascade 220, but I've never used it myself. In fact, just this week I have a convo with another knitting friend who is at least 20 years my junior and she's never used it either. Call me curious.

I'm "LooseKnit" on Ravelry.

nancy said...

I love Cascade 220. It is the BEST!!

Lisaknits said...

I have used Cascade 220 several times. It is the go to yarn for lots of projects. I like the heathers.

Cari said...

I love using Cascade 220 for felted handbags.

Kristen said...

I used Cascade 220 for my very first project: a button tab hat. I like the hat but find it a bit itchy on my forehead so I'd probably save it for projects that won't be directly against my neck or head. But I love the colors!

r said...

Oh how nice! I love Cascade 220 and both patterns!

Wendy said...

I've only used Cascade 220 for one project so far and I loved it! It was a felted bag. I have more in my stash that I bought for more bags I just haven't had a chance to make them yet! I don't have a particular favorite colorway. I am partial to blues and pinks though.

Oh LOVE!! Ive been lusting after a great ballet flat slipper pattern and that yarn is just gorgeous!! Im a new knitter so I habe yet to use this yarn, but I love discovering new things!!

L. P. said...

Cascade 220 is wonderful yarn, I have always loved those french press slippers, and I was enchanted with your sweater pattern. What could be a better prize?

neferatowen said...

I love love love cascade 220. My husband has a sweater made out of it, I made couple pairs of those slippers for christmas, and a million other things. As long as cascade 220 is around I will be using it :)

Susan said...

I have used 220 for slippers and love it! I couldn't possibly pick just one favorite color.

lcoe363 said...

Love Cascade 220. And the patterns look awesome!

Suzy Girl said...

My lys doesn't carry Cascade 220 so my exposure to it has been pretty limited. I've only knit with it once - for a hat and I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was for the price.
I currently have a couple of skeins of some superwash that I bought with no project in mind because I loved the color and some heathered that is set aside for a sweater. I'd love to win this great giveaway, but even if I'm not the lucky one there will be some Cascade 220 in my future.

Thanks,
Susan

Clare said...

Love, love, love Cascade 220- there are too many great colors to pick just one favorite, though I tend to favor the blues and greens. I'm hoping to try FPK slippers someday.

The first thing I remember making with Cascade 220 is felted coasters for my end tables.

A Playful Day said...

As a Brit, I have Cascade envy- it's not as easy to get in all the amazing colours here, or as reasonably priced. We need more work horse yarns with good yardage!

Elizabeth MacR said...

I think cascade 200 is great! I have made countless things in it for all my family members! Liz elizmcryn@aol.com

Mitchell14 said...

I love Cascade 220. It works well for so many projects. The sweater would be perfect for my kids!

Love Cascade 220! Just bought 15 beautiful bright colors to make an afghan with. Hopefully this will chase away the winter blues!!

IrishGirl said...

I'd love to make a pair of mittens in Forest Green. That silvery gray hue in the green is amazing. I've used Cascade 220 before and it really lasts.

AdaKnits said...

Cascade 220 and 220 Superwash are "staples" in my stash. I can always depend on 220 to give great results and look good for ages. I especially love the stitch definition I get with the yarn...and the COLORS....yum!

appledapple said...

I love your giveaways!!! I've never used Cascade, but I would love to!

I've had my eyes on that slipper pattern for a while: so elegant.

I actually just felted a pair of French Press Slippers last night. They are a Christmas present for my sister and they look great. Thanks for having Melynda on your show, it was really nice hearing how she developed the idea.

cindymen said...

Cascade 220 is a great yarn. I have dreamed of making those slippers but haven't done it yet!

trinbago chicks knit said...

I have a little fear associated with washing Cascade
220 since I felted it once but it is a great yarn. Also, is it wrong to want the bestfriend cardigan in adult size. I love that colourway.

Trisha R said...

I'll be honest. I have two skeins of 220 right now. The first two skeins I ever bought, specifically for a project where I needed bulky yarn but couldn't find the color I needed.

I'm only halfway done with my project. I'm still not sure how I feel about it. But, the quality for the price can't be beat. I'll have to wait to see how I feel at the end of my project, but many tell me that I won't be disappointed!

Kylie said...

Looove the work horse of the yarn world. My favourite colour is 8909, a bright clear turquoise, but in 2011 I'm making a 'Heroine' jacket out of the palm green colourway. Can't wait. Kx.

Susan C said...

A few years ago I used Cascade 220 for quite a few different felting projects, it was my favorite for felting. I just cast on for the Cassidy sweater from Chic Knits in a heather blue Cascade 220. It's a great yarn!

Julia said...

I've thought about Cascade 220, but was afraid of the felting factor if I used it for everyday clothing. Guess there's a first time for everything- especially if I could make something as fun looking as your new sweater!

Christine said...

Wonderful!

Valerie said...

Love your podcasts!!! I listen to them driving to and from work.

lindsey said...

Love that yarn. So good for felting!

Kristen said...

i have never tried cascade 220. i know...it's a shame but i have always used cheapy craft store yarn. My New Year goal is to knit with good, solid, and long-lasting yarn so i would enjoy adding this to my stash.

Rosemary said...

Alana: I am so excited because I just received an i-pad and can now seem to download your podcast. I can use the computer and listen to your beautiful discussions on one of my favorite passions. I bought alot of cascade to make mittens and hats from the book of "60 quick knits" book. The colors are great and I bought superwash for my grandkids. Hope I win so I can knit my granddaughter (3) your new cardigan. I have the pattern and yarn from Santa Barbara for the Cedar Leaf shawl. Rosemary at rosevta@gmail.com

michellewaite1 said...

I live in Portland, Oregon, so Cascade 220 is as much a part of my life as good coffee or beer. I am knitting a sweater with it right now. I think the colorway is Espresso. I have been wanting to try that slipper pattern.

sarah said...

I saw some of those gorgeous slippers at my local yarn shop, Loops in Tulsa, OK! I started knitting about two years ago and have fell I love with it. I have not used the Cascade 220 yet, but am anxious to use it for a felted project. I am thinking a large felted tote with felted flowers! Thanks for another fantastic giveaway! -Sarah, simplesd77@gmail.com

becca said...

Oh! I love Cascade 220. It made such gorgeous Christmas stockings this year. I've been wanting to make these slippers ever so long. I'd love to win this. Thanks so much, Alana!

I have not been able to knit with Cascade 220 because none of my local knitting shops carry it. I'd love to have the chance!

Josephine said...

Cascade 220 is a fabulous yarn. I made a cable and rib sweater (http://ravel.me/napoleon622/jto0e) with it a few years back and the yarn worked up beautifully. The FPK slipper pattern is a favorite as well. It was really interesting to hear Melynda talk about it.

I love the knitting stories! Cascade makes great yarn, and I love the heathered 220.

I used Cascade 220 to knit a baby sweater from Seven Things That Can Make or Break a Sweater. It was a yellow tweed and the sweater turned out so cute!

Really enjoyable episode as usual! I loved all the Cascade 220-7 talk and I hadn't known about Sandra Singh so thank you for introducing us all!

Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

Great Yarn! I like Blue Hyacinth. It would be so great in that sweater.

I love Cascade 220! Great selection of colors, great quality, and always one of the more affordable options at my LYS.

I've not had the pleasure of using Cascade 220 yet. I need to make the investment in some soon. Looking at the colors online, I really like the Jade colorway. But I also like the nice grey used on the French Press Slippers too. I plan to make myself a pair of those this year.

I use Cascade 220 for hats and mitts and bags. It makes a great yarn to felt.

I love Cascade 220! I have used the superwash for a huge afghan, and I'm very happy with the results. It was pleasant to work with too.

I think Cascade 220 is great! Recently I used it for a Fair Isle Christmas stocking-using the Christmas Red colorway of course! The FP slippers are so cute! Thanks for drawing. Happy Holidays!

I've not had the opportunity to use Cascade 220 yet but I sure love to. And the slipper pattern looks adorable!

I haven't yet tried Cascade 220, although I've wanted to. I've heard lots of great raves about it.

I hear Cascade 220 referred to as a "workhorse yarn", but it's so much more than that. It's soft and consistent, and the available array of colors is amazing. Projects knit in it become so much more than the sum of their parts.

I love Cascade 220. I've knit numerous scarves for the Red Scarf Project, using various red colorways (of course!)

I love its versatility, but I recently did a felting project with it, so now I am all felted out!

I've not used the Cascade 220. It looks beautiful. The colors are amazing: the Japanese maple; celery; shire; turtle; straw. All beautiful. Thank you for the opportunity to have a chance to try it!

I used Cascade 220 to make a neck warmer, that I wear nearly daily. It's a good, sturdy yarn with great color choices. Hard to pick a favorite colorway, but I am fond of that Kermit green I saw recently. ;o)

Paula said...

I've only used Cascade 220 in black, so I long to use a beautiful color! IT felted wonderfully though and I've wanted to use it for knitted food items for my girls' play kitchen for a long time now.

Kim said...

Cascade 220 is a great yarn. I used some superwash to make some hats for troops.

I have used Cascade 220 for several projects. The most recent was the sixteen cable hat. It's a really wonderful yarn to work with.

Cozy Knitting said...

What a generous give-a-way! Thanks for the chance. Cascade 220 is luscious yarn and fun to knit.

Julie said...

I love Cascade 220! I knit one of my very first "big" knitting projects, a felted bag, out of Cascade 220 in Berry Heather, with Regal trim. The bag felted beautifully, and I love it and use it all the time.
