Playing With Yarn

Mixing Yarns for a New Project! 

Hi, y’all! I’m planning a new project and I pulled a few different Scheepjes* yarns to  mix it up. These may have slightly different weights, but if you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know that I’m definitely not afraid to cross yarn types, even if they’re just “close enough.” I’ll mix in a heartbeat! 


Colour Crafter* – 4 balls – My yarn review

Stone Washed* – 10 balls (2 duplicate colors not pictured)

Softfun Aquarel* – 6 balls

Ran these gorgeous yarns through the Prisma app for some fun! 

And here’s my plan for this project. My upcoming free pattern: Moon Landing Blanket! Stay tuned!

  1. OMG. I was just looking at hexagon patterns online. I have lots of scheepjes yarn in my stash that I would like to use. Thank you. this is awesome. yay.

    • Lol! Yay!! Well somehow when I’m pattern brainstorming, the majority of the time a hexagon pops into my head. I just love designing the hexagon and the half-hexie, and the magical square-off of all the edges.. it’s just too fun! I hope you enjoy Moon Landing! Releasing pattern at the end of Nov 🙂

  2. I am CRAZY about your work!! Love your style, design, and color choices! Thanks for sharing so much. I am self-taught and have been curious about finding all these fabulous color combos you use in one particular yarn. How freeing to use them ALL!!

    • Totally! I definitely use mixing to get a wide color variety.. Check the “care instructions” to be sure they’re the same – other than that, go wild! 😊😊 Got a yarn to throw in that’s slightly too thick? Just go down a hook size 🙂 Happy crafting! -RC

  3. Definitely looking forward to your new blanket. I often mix my yarns; have to use up the stash.

  4. Is there a CAL on the way that had an odd name LYSS or similar. Have been enjoying this blog and have, apparently, missed the update of info on that slip stitch (?) beauty/

    • Ah! It’ll be a pattern released in an upcoming batch of patterns that all feature the Linen Stitch! 😁❤️ Glad to know you’re waiting for it! Coming soon 🙂

      Happy crafting!
