NOTE: the colour in Berroco's photos aren't completely accurate. Please choose your colour based on the pictures of the yarn balls.

Skill Level: Intermediate-Beginner (after scarves). (Mosaic stitch is an extremely easy form of colour knitting and only involves slipping stitches from the left needle to the right. 

Skills: Knit, slipping stitches, following a pattern, alternating balls of yarn (carrying yarn up the side/stripes)

The Yarn

Berroco Wizard is a super soft, light & happy bulky weight yarn. It stripes by itself, with bold colors flowing. It has a chainette construction which makes it feel deliciously airy and weightless. The consruction is also respinsible for it's very generous 240m yardage - the same amount of a typical bulky weight yarn would normally be about 100m to 125m. Wizard is also machine washable, so it's great for all kinds of projects including blankets, sweaters, hats, scarves, mitts - even a cozy pair of -slipper-socks!
