I have knit two stockinette summer tops and a lace kitchen curtain with Lindy Chain, and I love this yarn. Linen is naturally rough, but the weight and breathability of the finished product is worth the roughness when knitting. I tie knots in the ends of the yarn so it won't ravel. Slickish bamboo needles with dull points (old time plastic might also work well with the linen) are good, I've had no trouble with splitting, as long as I pay a bit of attention. Not a yarn for TV knitting. Metal needles don't hold onto the stitches, and wooden ones grip the stitches so they don't slide. Took a while to find what worked for me. For less unraveling at joins, I knit a few stitches with the old and new yarns doubled and then weave the long tails in opposite directions. Or bury into a seam if you have one. I recommend trying this yarn, the cost can't be beat.

Lindy Chain yarn is difficult to work with because the yarn splits, and at times there are thick little knobs preceded by thin strings so that I have to cut out a length of yarn and will have more yarn ends to weave in than usual. It also feels rough/hard. I will not order this again.

I hadn't used this yarn before. I was fine with the color, but I'd never used the "chain" type before. It unravels often and easily, I don't think it's my knitting technique. I've been working through it and hope it doesn't unravel in the finished work like some others have posted.

I love this yarn! It knits up beautifully! I did not have difficulties with splitting but I do use the Karbonz needles which have metal tips. About to order more Lindy Chain yarn and begin a new project:)

This is the first knit picks yarn that I am disappointed with. It is a chain and periodically one of the plies is broken coming off the ball resulting in the chain unraveling. Very disappointing I have a lot of ends to weave in now
