SAY HELLO TO HYGGE
The Scheepjes 2017 crochet-along kicks off this month and the project is a real gem. Have you seen it? Danish hookster Kirsten Ballering (www.haakmaarraak.nl) has designed Hygge, a Scandinavian-inspired wrap brimming with delicious detail. There are bobbles, surface crochet and even delicate cross stitching. The whole thing's hooked in the ever-popular Stonewashed yarn by Scheepjes and their Catona cotton. There are three glorious Hygge kits to choose from – Rainbow (pictured), Jewel and Pastel. Patterns are available in UK and US terms, Swedish and Dutch, and there'll be video tutorials, too. Visit www.scheepjes.com for further details and flip to page 66 to see Kirsten's beautiful rainbow blanket design.
