We absolutely love a classic acrylic DK here at Crochet Now – affordable, machine washable, colourful, reliable and snuggly – and Cygnet DK is certainly right up there in our Top 5! With 62 shades to choose from, including muted shades, neon brights, and a positive rainbow in between, you’re in good hands with classic yarn when it comes to blankets, accessories, and toys!
Cygnet DK is a beautiful, classic double knitting yarn, which has always been extremely popular with knitters and crocheters in a 100% soft acrylic. This standard double knitting yarn is incredibly versatile and comes in an array of bright, neutral, mix and neon colours; perfect for any project and is an easy fit for pretty much all DK patterns.
Cygnet’s melange colours have always been a popular choice due to their delicate mix effect, making them stand out against other single-colour yarns, and to add to this fabulous collection the team at Cygnet have release 4 brand-new shades! Jam, Mustard, Slate and Juniper are new additions boasting sensational autumnal hues that will be perfect for all your autumn and winter crochet projects.
We think Mustard and Juniper would go great together for a bold accessory set, or why not pair Slate with any shade for a cool, contemporary blanket for the home?
