Where to Buy?

Because the yarn is brand new, not all stockists have it listed yet, but Scheepjes has all of their stockists here.

Meanwhile, these shops have it up and ready to go already:

Wool Warehouse* ships to the UK and globally
Caro’s Atelier* ships to the Netherlands and Europe

Whirl Fine Art is a gradient yarn in the style of Whirl, Woolly Whirl and Whirligig.  It’s a composition of 50% Superfine Merino, 25% Microfibre and 25% Acrylic and has a recommended hook/needle size of 4-5mm. The yarn weight is DK and you’ll get 460m for your 515-225g cake. The yarn has an RRP of €33,95 / £29.99 / USD $37.95.

Also fun to know; Fine Art is a sister yarn to Merino Soft – another of my favourites – and Scheepjes has broadened their collection there to make sure that there will always be a perfect Fine Art partner. Scheepjes creative director Simy has shared an informative and inspiring post about pairing the colours, go check it out!

I was lucky enough to receive a cake in colourway Modernism from Scheepjes at our latest Bloggers Retreat and I’m squirrelling away on a new pattern which I’ll bring to you in the deepest darkest days of winter.

In the meantime, Tammy has been swatching, take a look: Whirl Fine-Art: A Closer Look. She’s also working on a knit project, so I’m super curious to know what will come of it!

WIP – Winter Crochet Project – Your Last Crochet Slippers?

It’s so cold, I swear!  I’ve lost some weight this year and an unexpected side effect is that I’m cold ALL the time!  I bought a new winter coat, and had to buy a down jacket to go under it, and it hasn’t even frozen here yet!

So to that end, I’m making slippers.  I’m too cold and I need them.

Plus, they’re slippers I’ve been thinking about making as long as I’ve been crocheting. That might seem strange; why haven’t I made them before, you ask.  Well, I’ve tried.  But the truth of the matter is, I haven’t had the right yarn to do it.

Until now.

This Scheepjes Chunky Monkey is the perfect yarn for the last pair of slippers you’ll ever need.  I raved about the yarn already, go take a look if you missed it.

My neighbour whom I loved as a grandmother knitted me slippers when I was a kid.  They were made with scrap yarn that was truly hideous, but I LOVED those slippers.  They lasted me years and years, until I eventually wore through them and I think my mum threw them away while I wasn’t paying attention.

But I’ve been looking for a replacement pair for literally twenty years!

And now I’ve cracked it.  The slippers are being made and they’re going to fit everyone.  Raina will have a pair, Maarten will have a pair, and we’ll be a family of matchy matchy dutchies.

Stay tuned, I’ll prove it to you in a few days!

A New Winter Crochet Project

I have yarn for a new winter crochet project with Scheepjes Chunky Monkey – one that will also be a perfect last minute Christmas gift, especially if you’re on a budget!

chunky monkey

I love the Chunky Monkey, it’s a yarn I’ve been waiting for for YEARS!

It’s a good weight (aran/worsted) so works up quickly and is great for instant gratification freaks like me, it comes in about 11 million colours (well, 93, but I don’t like the truth to get in the way of a good story), comes in huge 100g balls, and is seriously cheap. Caro’s Atelier* stocks it for €2.95 which is a massive bargain, you have to agree.

It’s important to note however; cheap does not mean poor quality. The yarn doesn’t split easily, it’s soft – it feels a lot like Merino soft actually – plus it’s anti-pilling which very few acrylic yarns can boast.

What I have found to be handy when using Chunky Monkey is, to rewind the balls.  They don’t have the handy centre pull tabs that many other Scheepjes yarns have because they’re not wound tightly.

Because they’re not particularly tightly wound, the balls can start to collapse on themselves after a while rolling around in your project bag as they get smaller.  Do note: you shouldn’t store the yarn wound into cakes for extended periods as it’ll affect the tension of the yarn – this goes for most yarns actually.  They’re better stored in their “relaxed” state in which you bought them.

chunky monkey

Here are some stats on Chunky Monkey:

Meterage – 116 metres (127 yards)
Unit weight – 100 grams (3.53 ounces)
Tension/gauge – 13.0 to 18.0 sts = 10cm
Needle size – US 8 – 5.0 mm
Hook size – 5.0 mm (H)
Fibre – 100% acrylic

Now, what am I making?  Well to be honest, I’m making a lot of things with this yarn, I’m a huge fan!  But right now, for this project, I’m making the last pair of slippers you’ll ever want to wear.  Seriously.  I can’t wait to share them with you.

Come back in a few days, I’m anxious to get this one out!

Rep repeat

Notes

This pattern is worked back and forth in rows, increasing at one end and decreasing at the other.  The increases and decreases will always be worked at the same end each row, creating an oblong shape.

We also work puff stitches.  A great video tutorial can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5O8QtxZFYGo. It’s important to note that often when completing a puff stitch, a ch1 is worked.  For this pattern, we do not work the ch1.

At the beginning of each row work a ch2. This does not count as a stitch.  The first instructed stitch is always worked into the very first stitch of the row.

It can be that the stitch pattern and count doesn’t exactly match up to the instructions; this is because it can be easy to add or lose a stitch at the decrease end if not careful.  Don’t worry too much, just keep an eye on it and don’t decrease over a couple of rows to get your stitch count back up (or down) to the right number.  Blocking and adding the fringe at the ends will disguise any “wonkiness.”

Take care using Scheepjes Skies, It’s a gorgeous, naturally dyed yarn using indigo.  It’s not colour fast, and if left in the sun the colour will fade.  Treat your wrap and yarn with extra special care.

You can also substitute the pack of Skies Light minis to complete this pattern, although there is less yarn in a full set of minis compared to three full hanks.  Note: I have not tested this pattern using the minis, but from a maths perspective I recommend skipping rows 5 – 6, and 36 – 37. You may also need to skip a shell stitch row in the middle section (colour 2 below) to have 4 rows instead of 5. There may not be enough yarn leftover to make a long fringe, so bear this in mind.

Reveal – Jan’s Scarf

Ready? Here we go! How’s this for a statement piece?

IMG_1231.JPG

612B3FA6-76DF-4EFD-8BB0-E8F4BE7C2C21.jpg

I’ve created a long, wide gradient scarf. Long enough wind around and around, and wide enough to wear around your shoulders.

IMG_1235.JPGThe cotton is soft and the blues are stunning. My mum would have loved this scarf.  She was all about blues and she would have rocked this.

So, I’ve decided to name the scarf for her. My mum was Jan (the English pronunciation, not the dutch man’s name) and because she would have quickly commandeered this one I’m calling it Jan’s Scarf.

1E221E69-936B-4B8B-8D15-4EA20701A378.jpg

For the design I’ve used three hanks of Scheepjes Skies light, in shades 109 Cirrocumulus, 110 Cirrus and 111 Cumulus.  You can also use a set of the minis, but the meterage is slightly less so you may have a scarf that is just a bit narrower than if you were to use three full hanks.

IMG_1232.JPG90C8345E-1557-4F85-A870-987CF2BA9BF3.jpg

I’m busy working on the pattern right now, which will be ready for you this time next week.

Scheepjes has all the stockist listed on their website, so you can find one local to you.

Wool Warehouse* and Deramores* ship all over the world, Knotty House* is in North America, Black Sheep Wools* in the UK, and of course my local store is Caro’s Atelier* here in Almere.

 

WIP – Scheepjes Skies

It’s been a busy week!

I’m well on the way to completing my Scheepjes Skies design.

It’s great fun, and I love working with the soft cotton that is Scheepjes Skies Light.

IMG_3744.JPG

I’m using three full hanks of the Skies light for my design, but that will be the equivalent of a full set of minis, so if you’ve been waiting for the right project to make with your minis, this could be it!

If you don’t have this yarn yet, Scheepjes has all the stockist listed on their website, so you can find one local to you.

Wool Warehouse* and Deramores* ship all over the world, Knotty House* is in North America, Black Sheep Wools* in the UK, and of course my local store is Caro’s Atelier* here in Almere.

Keep an eye out at the weekend for the big reveal, as I’m almost ready for the blocking mats and be sure to follow my insta for more behind the scenes shots!

New Crochet Design – Scheepjes Skies

I’ve been excited to use this yarn ever since it was released a few months ago, but it’s been so popular I had to wait to get my hands on all the colours I wanted!

Scheepjes Skies is a 100% cotton yarn available in 9 shades, died naturally with indigo.  It’s available in two weights; Skies light is 4ply/fingering, and Skies heavy is DK.

The yarn is also available in 100g hanks, or as a set of 9 28g minis which make beautiful gifts or collectables (or is that just me who loves collecting minis?).

1722-ast.png

It’s sold in hanks, so you get to have the pleasure of winding it into balls yourself.  It’s one of my delicious pleasures to sit quietly and wind a hank with just my arms and my nostepinne.

IMG_3834.JPG

Even though I have all the blue shades, I’m going to be using three colourways for this project; the three lightest (cirrocumulus, cirrus and cumulus), but you’ll be able to substitute a single set of minis, as the meterage will be much the same.

IMG_3835.JPG

I love this yarn.  It’s beautifully spun and the colours are rich and hand-dyed in their appearance.  You do need to take very good care of your hanks (and completed pieces) though – the natural dyeing process means that the colours are sensitive to light so be careful not to store them in direct sunlight.

IMG_3836.JPG

If you want to get your hands on the 100g hanks for light or heavy, or the minis (both in light and heavy too), here are a couple of recommendations:

Scheepjes has all the stockist listed on their website, so you can find one local to you.

Wool Warehouse* and Deramores* ship all over the world, Knotty House* is in North America, Black Sheep Wools* in the UK, and of course my local store is Caro’s Atelier* here in Almere.

YARN – Tea Room

It’s the latest issue of Scheepjes YARN!

IMG_3189.JPG

This issue is called Tea Room and is inspired by the origins, colours and aromas of different teas, with four themes including Matcha, Saffron and Ginger, English, and Oolong.

In Matcha you’ll find men’s garments and accessories, including the Nishio sweater by massively talented Susan (Peppergoose) Walsh.

nishio.jpeg

My own design, the Spice Market snood is to be found in the Saffron and Ginger theme, which is filled with rich golds and ochres.  My snood is deliberately oversized, so you can wear it around your shoulders or snuggle into the hood when it’s chilly. Made with Namaste, you’ll be warm even on the coldest of days.

snood mustard.jpeg

snood rust.jpeg

In English Tea the designs are all beautiful with their blues and lavender accents. You’ll also find my favourite, and a project I have big plans to make; the Petals and Leaves shawl, by Johanna (Mijo Crochet) Lindahl.

IMG_3245.JPG

The original uses a single cake of Whirligig in grey to lavender, but I’ll be using teal to ombre and I can’t wait to make it!  Keep an eye on my Instagram for progress pics over the coming weeks.

In Ooolong you’ll find soft colours and stylish garments. I love the Jasmine poncho by Margaret (margaretshooksandneedles.blogspot.com).

jasmine.jpeg

Now this is just a peek into what’s in the issue.  You’ll have to get your own copy to see the rest. Inside you’ll find designs from some of your favourite designers, including Rachele (Cypress Textiles) Carmona, Jellina (Jellina Creations) Verhoef, Maria (50 Shades of 4 Ply) McPherson, and Martin up North.

You can pick it up at your usual retailers for 8.95 euro, 7.95 GBP or 9.95 USD. Take a look at Wool Warehouse*, Deramores*, Caro’s Atelier*, Black Sheep Wools* and Knotty House*.  Do also check your local retailer, they’re all listed on the Scheepjes website.

Don’t forget to add your projects to Ravelry and Instagram so we can all enjoy them using #yarnbookazine.

Benodigheden

1 bol Scheepjes Whirl in kleur Dark Grape Squish of Coral Catastrophe, of eigen keuze
4mm (G) haaknaald
Maasnaald

Afmetingen

160 x 120 cm na opspannen

Stekenverhoudingen

23 stn en 14 rijen in patroon meten 10 x 10 cm (4in) met een 4mm (G)  haaknaald, of andere naald om juiste stekenverhouding te halen.

Afkortingen

L losse
SO sla een steek over
HST half stokje
2HSTcl 2 halve stokjes cluster (zie notities)
open opening(en)
Meerd 2 hst in een steek meerderen
gon garen om de naald
S(tn) steek (steken)

Notities

Dit is een beginnersvriendelijk patroon en wordt heen en weer in rijen gehaakt, met meerderingen slechts aan één kant.  Het wordt een grote driehoek.

Herhaal de instructies tussen haakjes het totaal aantal keren zoals aangegeven.

Aan het begin van elke rij haak je 2 lossen. Deze tellen niet als een steek.

In de laatste steek van elke 2e rij haak je een 2HSTcl. Om de 2HSTcl te maken: gon, steek naald in s, haal lus op, gon, haal door 2 lussen, steek naald in s, haal lus op, gon, haal door alle lussen.

Om het korter te houden zijn er geen stekenaantallen genoemd in het patroon.  Elke rij groeit met 1 steek. Let op: als je op een “fast lane” zit (HST, 1L, SO 1), heb je een oneven aantal steken. Op de teruggaande rij heb je weer een even aantal steken.

Stekenverhouding is niet heel erg belangrijk, maar als je een losse ha(a)k(st)er bent, gebruik dan een kleinere haaknaald.

IMG_1569

Instructies

Rij 1 3L, 2HST in de 3e l vanaf de naald, keer om.

Rij 2 2L (telt niet als een steek hier en verder), HST in dezelfde s, 1l, 2HSTcl in de laatste s. Keer om.

Rij 3 2L, HST in dezelfde s, HST in de l-open, Meerd in de laatste s, keer om.

Rij 4 2L, HST in dezelfde s, 1l, HST in de volgende s, 1l, SO 1, 2HSTcl in de laatste s, keer om.

Rij 5 2L, HST in dezelfde s, (HST in l-open, HST), herhaal tot je nog 1 s over hebt, Meerd. Keer om.

Rij 6 2L, HST in dezelfde s, 1l, (HST, 1l, SO 1) tot je nog 1 s over hebt, 2HSTcl.

Rij 7 2L, HST in dezelfde s, HST tot je nog 1 s over hebt, Meerd. Keer om.

Herhaal rijen 6 en 7 nog 5 keer.

Nu de “slow lanes”

Rij 18 2L, Meerd in dezelfde s, HST tot je nog 1 s over hebt, 2HSTcl Keer om.

Rij 19 2L, HST in dezelfde s, HST tot je nog 1 s over hebt, Meerd. Keer om.

Rij 20 2L, HST in dezelfde s, 1l, (HST, 1l, SO 1) tot je nog 1 s over hebt, 2HSTcl. Keer om.

Rij 21 2L, HST in dezelfde s, HST tot je nog 1 s over hebt, Meerd. Keer om.

Herhaal rijen 18-21 nog 2 keer.

lisl setup rows

Nu als volgt:

(Herhaal rijen 6 en 7 nog 7 keer, daarna:e herhaal rijen 18-21 3 keer). Dit maakt een set van fast en slow lanes.

Herhaal deze sets tot er alleen nog maar garen over is om met een slow lane te eindigen.

Eindig niet op een rij 6/7. Als de stekenverhoudig goed is, zal er alleen een klein stuk whirl over zijn.

Hecht af en span op naar afmetingen.

Vergeet niet: Deel jouw projecten op Ravelry en Instagram, en in de Scheepjes CAL FB groep.

Du brauchst

1 Bobbel Scheepjes Whirl in deiner Wunschfarbe.
4mm Häkelnadel
Stopfnadel zum Vernähen

Abmessungen

160 x 120 cm

23 Maschen und 14 Reihen (im Muster) = 10 x 10 cm bei Verwendung einer 4 mm Häkelnadel

Abkürzungen

Lm – Luftmasche

2BmhlbSt – Büschelmasche aus 2 halben Stäbchen

Anmerkungen

Dies ist ein Anfänger-Hakelmuster, es wird in Hin- und Rückreihen gearbeitet. Es werden nur auf einer Seite Maschen zugenommen. Das fertige Tuch hat die Form eines großen Dreiecks.

Die Angaben in Klammern (…) werden so oft wiederholt wie angegeben.

Am Anfang jeder Reihe 2 Luftmaschen (Lm) häkeln, diese werden nicht als Masche gezählt.

Die 2 Büschelmaschen aus halben Stäbchen am Ende jeder zweiten Reihe dienen dazu, den Rand zu begradigen, so dass keine Umrandung gehäkelt werden muss. Um 2 Büschelmaschen aus halben Stäbchen (2BMhlbSt) zu häkeln gehe wie folgt vor: Umschlag, Nadel in die Masche einstechen, Faden holen (= 3 Umschläge auf der Nadel), Umschlag, Faden durch die ersten beiden Umschläge auf der Nadel ziehen, Nadel in die Masche einstechen, Umschlag, Faden holen (=3 Umschläge auf der Nadel), Umschlag, Faden durch alle Maschen auf der Nadel ziehen.

In der Anleitung ist keine Maschenanzahl pro Reihe angegeben, damit die Anleitung nicht zu lang und unübersichtlich wird. In jeder Reihe erhöht sich die Anzahl der Maschen um 1. Die schnellen Reihen (Halbes Stäbchen, 1 Luftmasche, 1 Masche auslassen) haben immer eine ungerade Maschenzahl. Die langsamen Reihen haben eine gerade Maschenzahl.

IMG_1569

Anleitung

Reih 1 3 Lm, 2 hlbSt in die dritte Masche von der Nadel, wenden.

Reih 2 Lm (zählt nicht als Masche), hlbSt in die gleiche Masche, 1 Lm, 2BmhlbSt in die letzte Masche. Wenden

Reih 3 2 Lm (zählt nicht als Masche), hlbSt in die gleiche Masche, hlbSt in den Luftmaschenzwischenraum, 2 hlbSt in die letzte Masche, wenden.

Reih 4 2 Lm (zählt nicht als Masche), hlbSt in die gleiche Masche, 1 Lm, 1 hlbSt, 1 Lm, 1 Masche auslassen, 2BmhlbSt in die letzte Masche, wenden.

Reih 5 2 Lm (zählt nicht als Masche), hlbSt in die gleiche Masche, (hlbSt in Luftmaschenzwischenraum, hlbSt), hlbSt bis zur und in die vorletzte Masche, 2 halbe Stäbchen in die letzte Masche, wenden.

Reih 6 2 Lm (zählt nicht als Masche), hlbSt in die gleiche Masche, 1 Lm, (hlbSt, 1 Lm, 1 Masche auslassen – wiederholen bis zur vorletzten Masche), 2BmhlbSt in die letzte Masche, wenden.

Reih 7 2 Lm (zählt nicht als Masche), hlbSt in die gleiche Masche, hlbSt bis einschließlich zur vorletzten Masche (auch in die Luftmaschenzwischenräume), 2 hlbSt in die letzte Masche, wenden.

Reihe 6 und 7 noch 5 x wiederholen.

Jetzt geht es an die langsamen Reihen:

Reih 18 2 Lm (zählt nicht als Masche), 2 hlbSt in die gleiche Masche, hlbSt in jede Masche bis einschließlich zur vorletzten, 2BmhlbSt, wenden.

Reih 19 2 Lm (zählt nicht als Masche), hlbSt in die gleiche Masche, hlbSt bis einschließlich zur vorletzten Masche, 2 hlbStb in die letzte Masche, wenden.

Reih 21 2 Lm (zählt nicht als Masche), hlbSt in die gleiche Masche, hlbSt bis einschließlich zur vorletzten Masche (auch in die Luftmaschenzwischenräume), 2 hlbSt in die letzte Masche, wenden

Die Reihe 18-21 noch 2 x wiederholen.

Jetzt folgenden Satz arbeiten:

(Reihen 6 und 7 sieben Mal wiederholen, dann Reihen 18-21 drei Mal wiederholen). Das ergibt einen kompletten Satz aus schnellen und langsamen Reihen.

Diesen Satz so oft wiederholen, bis man nur noch ausreichend Garn hat, um mit einer langsamen Reihe zu enden. Nicht nur nach einer Reihe 6 oder 7 aufhören!

Wenn die Maschenprobe passt bleibt nur sehr wenig Garn über.

Faden vernähen und das Tuch spannen.
