Scheepjes Roma Big Yarn

Buy Scheepjes Roma Big at WoolWarehouse*! I’m not kidding when I say I’ve never worked with a yarn this chunky, but when I started drafting pattern designs for my upcoming book, I got a picture in my mind that a thick yarn would be perfect for this certain project. A quick search landed me on Scheepjes Roma Big. What a beauty!! I can describe it as a soft rope. It’s got great structure and beautiful stitch definition. Not too fuzzy, but not too smooth, and a fairly matte finish.

Hexagon Burst: Free Pattern 

I am so excited to finally offer my Hexagon Burst free pattern to you all! This hexie was made with the classic Sunburst square in mind (hey-hey Priscilla Hewitt – my crochet idol!) but I made 2DC clusters in place of the puff stitches, and I added an oversized outer petal round. Oh yeah, and I jammed a zillion petals on it.. 🙂 Find Pattern Pattern is available on Ravelry in PDF format. Also on Craftsy!

Bonbon is sweet as candy! 

Introducing a new yarn by Scheepjes*! I’m welcoming Maxi Bonbon* laceweight thread to my Scheepjes stash ❤️❤️ There are 87 shades of this 25gr teensy yarn – each little ball is about 2.25″ tall, and recommended hook size is 1.25mm. It’s truly the cutest thing! Check out this color range – wowzers! Colors match back to Catona* too – so neat.  And you just know I had to organize all the yarn in some kind of rainbow… Goodness this was fun, and challenging. There are just so many colors! So what’s the yarn like? Well it’s a mercerized cotton, so you can think “small hook”, but I actually chose to hold it double on my prototype project and use a size G hook. That worked really well! Especially if you’re like me and you get scared by a 1.25mm hook 😝😝 Info drill-down: 100% mercerised cotton, high twist, Lace weight (2ply) yarn 25g = 140m Available in 87 colours Perfect for smaller projects, or larger projects where you’d like to use a lot of colours. Ideal for …
