Double Knit Cupcake Pack


This colour pack of hand dyed merino, by ColourSpun, is meant as an introduction to stranded colour work, but you can use it for anything.

Double knit, it consists of 8 mini cupcakes of 25 grams each (52,5 metres) and one cake of charcoal on 50 grams that can be used as a main colour.

Should you wish to purchase the Alterknits Rebellion book, there is a 10% discount off the book, when bought with this kit – just choose your option from the drop down menu.

Whilst most of the book uses 2 ply (from the meterage it looks like a sock weight) and 3 ply (sport weight) I will be knitting the mittens in the double knit. I will first swatch with 4mm needles, and then work out what size mittens to knit. For example, I may knit a smaller size. I will make my notes available to those who buy the book/kit option.

Double knit is a great stable yarn to use for colour work, and it also knits up quickly!

Total yardage in pack is 250 grams = 525 metres
