Stylecraft has put together special Special DK packs of 50g balls of all 10 colours which will be available from all good yarn shops from mid – October and will be showcased on Stylecraft’s stand at The Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace from 7th -11th October 2015.

Starting in September Stylecraft will be doing a blog tour to celebrate the 10 finalists across a number of high profile blogs, so keep your eyes peeled.
