At the top left of this page, click on "the magazine"; then in the first column of that, click on how-tos, and in there, scroll down to dyeing. I'd give you a direct link, but you'll see so many other interesting things on your way!

I believe the first issue of knitty.com had an article. Just go to their archives and scroll down to the first issue.

I have done kool-aid dyeing the microwave method and stove top method and definitely prefer the stove top method. If you do a search on Google you’ll find many recipes for kool-air dyeing. Take a look at the following method which is the one I prefer –

By the way the colors you can get are fabulous. Good luck!
