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.
Linen Stitch Manghan by Dedri Uys
This is a design that shows just how diverse the Stone Washed yarn is and how wonderfully the colours work together. You can get the yarn packs for this in Dedri’s shop*.
Hotel of Bees Shawl by Christina Hadderingh
This is a design that I fell in love with at first glance. I love everything about it, it just makes me feel happy. Isn’t Christina a talented designer? The yarn for this one is available here*.
Cosy Colour Block Shawl by Sarah Knight
Sarah’s Colourblock shawl is such a popular garter stitch design, and it’s easy to see why! Stone Washed makes the best warm shawls, cosy is most definitely the best adjective here! Pop over and get the yarn here*.
Peek-a-Boo Button Wrap by Nerissa Muijs
This one is by me, it’s my Peek-a-Boo Button Wrap, of which I’m enormously proud. It’s an incredibly simple and flattering design that is easily customisable for your own body. The yarn is available here*.
I Love Scraps Afghan by Mary Ann Frits
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.
Top by Scheepjes
This one is to be found on the Scheepjes website directly. It’s a lovely knit design and one to add to your WIP list for sure. Click here* to get the yarn.
Green Agate Top by Annelies Baes
Here is proof that Stone Washed isn’t just for cosy blankets, shawls and wraps, it also makes beautiful delicate garments, as showcased here in Annelies’ gorgeous design. You’ll only need up to 7 balls to complete this one, grab the yarn here*.
Flower Square Kids Poncho by Maaike van Koert
This was one of the very first designs with Stone Washed when it was released a couple of years ago (how the time has flown by!) and it’s an enduring favourite. The instructions for the motif and the poncho construction are on the CreJJtion website and the yarn can be purchased here*
Stone Washed Beach Bag by Marinke Slump
Although Marinke was so well known for her mandalas, this third loop HDC stitch was like her signature in my mind, and this lovely beach bag that she designed for Deramores is no exception. You can get the yarn and pattern from Deramores directly.
Star Blanket by Atty van Norel
It’s just not possible to have a pattern round up for Scheepjes Stone Washed without sharing Atty’s Star Blanket. Atty’s motifs are all so original and creative, she’s a true innovator! The yarn is for sale here*.
