Can any of the Tennessee fans that knit tell me if they have used an orange color yarn and what kind of yarn it was? I need the Tennessee orange color to make some scarves and don't know what to get. Thanks for your help.

Caron Simply Soft has a very bright orange. My Son-in-Law played football for Tennessee so the whole family bleeds orange. Since Tangerine is THE color this spring, I would think just about every manuifacturer will be making a bright orange. I think I saw a nice one at Hobby Lobby as well.

Lion Brand also has a Hometown Colors line. I know there is an orange in there but don't know if it matches Tennessee.

This red-heart seems close,

But Caron's simply soft has a "Melon" color that seems to be closer

and the Red-Heart Soft yarn has a Tangerine -

And the Bernat satin yarn has a "Goldenrod" that might be close
http://www.joann.com/bernat-satin-yarn/prd23037/

Since joann seems to have a lot of these, you might try a trip to the store to see in person if there's one near you. They are also very good about returns.

PS - I might be a BullDawg fan, but I understand the importance! And I'm happy to help out a fellow SEC fan! :thumbup:

You could just switch to Crimson & Blue -- go Jayhawks! Just kidding! All jokes aside, my son played at Kansas but is now the coach at a small university where their only official color is orange. Their orange seems to be a more red-orange than Tennesse, but Hobby Lobby has some real good choices in their "Love this Yarn".

I used some Cascade worsted weight yarn in a bright orange. It was a wool/nylon blend I think. The hat turned out very nice--it was for my niece's husband who wanted to wear it hunting.

I don't think it's that exact. Any bright orange will do. I had one graduate from UT and 2 from Auburn so it gets quite interesting here especially during football season.

I used a color from Lion brand called Syracuse Orange. It was pretty close.. Forgive me,VOLS, but it was necessary at the time.

To ljbjennings from Gadsden: WAR EAGLE right back at ya! We live in Texas now, but spent 3 wonderful years in Albertville on Sand Mountain with many, many trips to the "big town" down the hill, Gadsden. (Besides shopping, we liked going to Noccalula Falls.) Then,we got our graduate degrees at Auburn. Coach Tuberville is here in Lubbock at Texas Tech now.
