Tups was knitted with Blacker Swan 4ply, a beautifully soft British wool yarn. Although labelled as 4ply, it is more truly a sportweight, producing a lovely fabric at sportweight gauges. If substituting other brands, we recommend that you choose a sportweight yarn.
The instructed sizes include 2-5cm/1-2” of positive ease. With Blacker Swan 4ply, you will need 8(8:8:9:9:10:10:11:11:11: 12:12:13:13) 50g balls of your main colour, and 1(1:1:1:1:1:1:1:1:1:1:1:2:2) 50g balls of contrast colour.
The tension/gauge given above (25 sts and 36 rounds per 10cm/4”) is for blocked single-colour stocking stitch/stockinette; the tension/gauge for the blocked stranded colourwork is 29 sts and 36 rounds per 10cm/4”.
