The FREE crochet pattern
The free crochet pattern will be published in 6 parts, covering 1 to 2 weeks, rather than weekly releases as in previous CALS. The pattern will be available in English (UK & US), Dutch and German in the official Scheepjes Facebook groups and on the Scheepjes website. Additional languages may become available during the CAL. The pattern will remain available online after the CAL! Each part will be accompanied by handy video tutorials for left and right-handed crafters (in English and Dutch), created by Scheepjes Blogger Esther Dijkstra of the blog It’s all in a Nutshell
About the designer
Since she started crafting 10 years ago, Dutch Blogger Christina Hadderingh simply can't imagine her life without crochet or knitting. With her trusty crochet hook and in hand and her cat Poose by her side, she sits and daydreams while creating beautiful designs. Christina finds inspiration all around her, but especially in nature and books. Read more via her blog A Spoonful of Yarn.
The Scheepjes 2020 CAL is both a Crochet-A-Long and a Read-A-Long! This means the weekly content throughout the CAL will be a little different than the previous CALs. Instead of weekly pattern parts, Scheepjes are releasing larger pattern parts that cover 1 or 2 weeks and weekly Bookclub Sunday materials.
