Scheepjes Yarns has come out with the third volume of their YARN Book-azine, the Tropical Issue. And I cannot wait to show you my contribution! I’m so proud to be included in a group of such talented designers.
When I saw the first two YARN volumes, the Sea Issue and Midnight Garden, I knew I wanted to be a part of this incredible project. Flipping through these beautiful volumes never gets old. Check them out at WoolWarehouse.com*.
First, the Sea Issue…
You can hop over to Ravelry and take a peek at all of the designs in the new Tropical Issue. I’ve chosen a couple of my favorites to show you here: the Piña Colada shawl by Nerissa Muijs, and the Cactus Puzzle Balls by Dedri Uys.
The design I made for this issue is the “Amazon Blanket” seen on the cover above at the bottom-right corner, and here in the following fantastically styled photos:
You can imagine my glowing pride for my piece to be included amongst all that beauty. If you’re making it, tag #amazonblanket on social media ❤️❤️

I also got a great little pic of the “YARN: the After Party” mini booklets that Scheepjes also publishes alongside the YARN bookazine. You can also find these at WoolWarehouse*. Aren’t the patterns just beautiful? My favorite part is the thoughtful way that the Scheepjes team stylizes the pieces. Swoon!
