I have been using this yarn for quite some time and I love it, until I came to knit with it. You see Riot is Z twist, which is good news for crocheters but terrible for knitters (well right handed crocheters and knitters any way) as a knitting yarn Riot is very splitty, but as a crocheting yarn it is lovely, there are some lovely colour ways, it is super soft, and makes lovely bears.


I started writing a pattern for riot but it is a tad grabby so frogging was difficult, with this in mind I would not recommend Riot for total novices but once you get in the swing of things use it for everything, go on, it’s lovely.
