She has written a warm word of welcome on her blog! This motif-based design also offers a great deal of creative freedom for crocheters feeling adventurous. To help them explore colour combinations and visualise how their final blanket will look, an interactive booklet is included within kits, containing Periodic Colour Tables, colour theory information and colouring pages with a simplified schematic of the layout.
The Scheepjes Colour Lab CAL features various crochet techniques including join-as-you-go methods and is suitable for all levels of crafter, from adventurous beginners wanting to learn along the way, to advanced crocheters looking for a creative journey that’s exploding with colour possibility. Scheepjes have collaborated with the designer to provide supporting materials before and during the CAL. These include Tips and Tricks, English & Dutch language video tutorials for both left- and right-handers by Esther from It's All in a Nutshell, and designer blogposts corresponding with the release of each pattern part. Participants are also invited to access ongoing support and expertise within the Official Facebook Groups from knowledgeable moderators and admins. The international Scheepjes Community are also on hand to offer friendly advice and encouragement.
Two exclusive kits are available: Scheepjes Metropolis, a luxurious Extra Fine Merino Blend, and Scheepjes’ newest yarn Scrumptious, that has recycled plastic bottle content. Both CAL kits include three base shades and a Colour Pack containing all 80 available colours, offering countless exciting options for placement. Kit extras include the Classified Colour Lab booklet, a tapestry needle on a printed card, a Limited Edition Scheepjes Lanyard and an ‘Access All Areas’ pass that unlocks fun extra content, relating to the theme.
The Colour Lab CAL is all about experimenting with colour. Will you follow the conventional road and combine colours according to the colour wheel, or do you abandon all rules to follow your own path? It's your blanket, your choice.
To assist you in this process we have made a colouring page with a schematic layout of the finished blanket. You can download this as often as you like. Colour your heart out and see your vision come to life when you get going with your selected yarn!
As always, we'll share the free individual patterns on Wednesday 12:00h CET on our website andOfficial Facebook Groups. Because some motifs require more work than others, some patterns take up a week, others two weeks. We have provided the overview below for you to mark your calenders!
