If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I’m busy plugging away on my Aquarel blanket (progress report on that this week), but today I’m taking some time out to investigate a new project.
A new fortnightly pattern booklet from Scheepjes has just landed on my doorstep. It’s called Yarn: The After Party, and complements the twice yearly bookazine – Yarn* – that was launched earlier this year.
The concept behind The After Party is to keep the creative juices flowing between Yarn editions, and each booklet will include a single pattern and a colour chart with all the available yarns. The styling is amazing, it makes me excited for the next instalment!
The booklet is in English and Dutch (which is great for me to practice my Dutch pattern reading), and for all us Ravelry nerds, it’s also available as a digital download for a euro. If you buy the yarn for the design from one of the retailers, the booklet is free.
The Linen and Lace Cardigan in this edition was designed by Annelies Baes. Annelies is such a talented garment designer, she is fully dedicated to figuring out how to create the best fit!
I’m sure it’ll be an enjoyable project, the linen soft is so easy to work with, it was such a pleasure while I was making my Rustic Lace Blanket over the winter.
Right, so the important info: You can get The After Party at your favourite Benelux Scheepjes stockist, and Deramores* will ship them worldwide.
Still don’t have a copy of Yarn? Get it here*.
HI, I am new to crocheting….do you think I can crochet the linen and lace cardigan? I would really like to try. Where can I get the pattern? Thanks so much
Hi Susan, it depends how new you are to crochet to be honest. It’s not a complicated pattern, but things like gauge and being a stickler for the measurements are important. I think if you’re ready for the next step, this is a great one! I have some links in the post above for where you can get it. You can also get a digital download of the pattern on Ravelry (just search Scheepjes).
