Yarn & prizes provided for review & giveaway by Berroco. Opinions are my own.
The Yarn: Berroco Aero
Colorway pictured: Aurora Borealis 8104
Skein details: 50g (1.75 oz.) skeins / 164 yds / 150 m / 65% Alpaca, 28% Nylon, 7% Wool / DK weight
Knitting needles: US 13, 9 mm / 12 stitches & 16 rows over 4 inches (10 cm)
Crochet hook: US M, 9 mm / 10 sc & 11 rows over 4 inches (10 cm)
Cons: The name Aero is spot on for this yarn. Some folks might need a moment to adapt to working with a yarn this airy.
Pros: It’s different! If you’re looking to try a new kind of yarn, this is a refreshing, fun option. And it comes in a bunch of great, variegated colors that do the hard (color)work for you.
Pattern Ideas: This is a great yarn for accessories and lighter sweaters. The Classic Slouchy Beanie pattern is a great pick for knitters, and crocheters might like to try this as a colorful Round Granny Cushion!

Ok, so you’re wondering what’s so BIG about this month’s giveaway, right? Well, instead of our usual skein or two of yarn, Berroco has generously agreed to send one lucky winner a bunch of things! The winner will get the Berroco Aero knitting pattern book, a Berroco tote bag, and a project quantity (so enough Aero yarn to make an entire project) of Aero in her choice of color. Pretty awesome!
