10 of The Best: Knit and Crochet Projects with Scheepjes Stone Washed

It’s no secret that Scheepjes Stone Washed is one of my favourite yarns to use.  Ask any of my blogger tribe and they’ll say the same.  It is amazing.  The colours are vibrant, the yarn itself is unique in its construction, and the end results: fabulous.

In honour of this beauty, I have a round up for you with 10 of the best knit and crochet projects using Stone Washed.  The patterns are all available by clicking on the images or headings.

This is one of those designs that Pinterest loves to show me – almost every day it’s being saved by people that I follow, and when it’s not being saved, it’s being recommended by Pinterest.  This heart stitch is one that I love, especially in this spectrum colourway from Marieke at The Breiboerderij.  There are yarn packs available in her lovely webshop.

Peek-a-Boo Button Wrap – For Kids!

I’m really not a fan of Dutch winters.  I’ve had this wrap ready to show you for ages, but haven’t had any decent light-filled days to photograph it. Finally at the weekend there was glorious sunshine, so Raina and I spent the morning outside taking pics.

Raina really loves her wrap.  It looks cute on her, don’t you think?

The Scheepjes Stone Washed XL is also a seriously snuggly yarn.  Even though it’s a cotton/acrylic blend, it’s warm enough that Raina had no complaints about the cold when it was only 5 degrees outside!

I’m in the process of writing the instructions for kids sizes.  I need to get hold of a few different sized kids and a tape measure!

Stay tuned, the instructions and measurements are coming soon.

You can pick up the yarn at Scheepjes retailers all over the Benelux, or internationally from Wool Warehouse*.

WIP: Peek-a-Boo!

Has a week slipped by already?  The flu has been in residence here for the last week.  Wow, what a horrible virus it has been too.  I’m only just starting to come out into the light again, and my husband, well, the poor thing is on his fourth day in bed.  In all the years we’ve been together, he’s taken his first sick days from work.

I’ve been so unwell I haven’t even been able to crochet.  Can you even imagine?!  Luckily I’ve still made good progress on my Peek-a-Boo.  This Stone Washed XL wrap basically crochets itself.

I’m actually already at the stage where I’m choosing buttons.  Although I think I’ll let my daughter decide which she likes (I’m going to guess she goes for the flowers).  Which would you choose?

I also need to start writing the instructions.  You can see, not very far into that yet!

Hopefully next week this will be finished, and I’ll have been able to beg or bribe my daughter into modelling it so I can show you how it looks!

Until then, beware of the flu!

You can pick up the yarn at Scheepjes retailers all over the Benelux, or internationally from Deramores, Wool Warehouse, and at Paradise Fibers in North America!
