COLOR NOTE: I was amazed to see that this yarn knitted into stripes in the swatch! Please note, though, that, assuming you're knitting across more than 22 stitches (as in this swatch), and/or with a different needle size, you will most likely NOT get the striped effect. In the skein, there is proportionally quite a bit more of the pink color than the red.
Skein weight: 51 g/1.8 oz.
Gauge: U.S. #2 needle: 24 sts/31 rows = 4”
PLEASE NOTE: All yarns will be wound into center-pull balls before shipping, so they'll arrive ready-to-use! If you'd rather your yarn was left in skein form (as shown here), you must let us know when you place your order. Thank you!
Care: Hand wash in cool water with mild detergent. Rinse in cool water, and gently squeeze out excess water. Lay on towels or drying rack to air-dry.
PROJECT IDEAS: You could make a cowl or small scarf from 1 skein of this yarn, perhaps a pair of fingerless gloves; 2 skeins should be enough for a lace shawl, or possibly a pair of socks. Since this is a fingering-weight yarn, it would work beautifully in lace patterns, which also help the yarn go further.
This yarn can also be combined with Ticklish flag yarn, also in Cupid, and worked on larger needles.
