Yarn of the Month - Stylecraft Special DK

This month we are all about Stylecraft's Special DK Yarn! We've got some fabulous combinations to share with you so keep reading!

This yarn is beloved for its versatility and massive 100-strong range of colours! You'd be hard pushed not to find a colour you like in this range!

Suitable for any knitting or crochet pattern designed for double knit yarn it's a firm favourite of ours. 

Here's what you need to know:


Autumn Vibes

With autumn well and truly here now, the colour options in this range for your autumn projects are abundant!

It was hard to pick, but here's a few that we think work really well together and would make a gorgeous combination no matter what the project!

We love the warm tones in this selection which give a really cosy vibe, perfect for warming up your home with handmade decor, or keeping you warm in knitted hats and scarves!


Winter Inspiration

These next colours are just stunning together; inspired by a frozen ice sparkles, these cool and crisp colours bring winter to life, and makes those dreary days feel just magical!

The range of blues and purples in the Stylecraft Special DK range are endless, so if you're looking for a warmer, softer selection, you will be spoilt for choice!


Christmas Colours

And with winter time, comes Christmas!

This collection of yarn has pretty much any Christmas colour combo you could possibly want, from gorgeous reds, to festive greens and much more! We opted for a fun take on this Christmas selection with a traditional red and green combination alongside some gingerbread.

We think the Sunshine yellow adds that pop of colour that brings Christmas projects to light, injecting a little bit of joy everywhere its added!



All Things Rainbow

If rainbows are your thing (and we know they are for a lot of you!) then you will LOVE these rainbow combinations that we have been working on for a blanket pattern we recently tested.

As always we have the pastels, and the brights - if choosing one colour wasn't enough of a decision(!) But we've put them all together in one place for you to make it super easy:

This is by no means the only pastel rainbow options - but we think this candy colour selection is just delicious!

Here are the colours in this selection from left to right: Candyfloss, Apricot, Lemon, Spring Green, Sherbet and Wisteria (with another Candyfloss on the end)

And if you're more into bright shiny rainbows, then this bright selection might be just the thing for you:


Colours from left to right: Lipstick, Spice, Citron, Grass Green, Aster, Violet, Magenta

And if you're still not sure if this is the yarn for you, then here's what some of our lovely customers said:

  • "Great all-round yarn. I love this yarn and have every shade in my stash. I use it for toys, blankets and clothing because it knits up well and washes well, too."
  • "Lovely yarn, soft and easy to work with"
  • "Love this yarn! This has been my preferred yarn for many years. Perfect for crochet blankets, even soft enough for babies. Love Fiesta, a very bright pink, lie a highlighter pen! And Turquoise, such a 'girly' blue! Bright vibrant colours and consistent quality."
  • "My little one is heavily into Yoshi from Super Mario and this is the colour and yarn I need to make him a Yoshi hat, scarf and mittens. Love the yarn."
