Scheepjes CAL 2018 Ubuntu by Dedri Uys in Scheepjes Cotton 8 - Small
Dedri Uys from LookatWhatIMade has gone and done it again!
In collaboration with Scheepjes, Dedri brings you Scheepjes 2018 CAL - The theme for this years CAL (Crochet-A-Long) is "UBUNTU - the belief that we are defined by our compassion and kindness towards others”. The word Ubuntu is a Nguni Bantu term meaning “humanity towards others”, but it is much more than that and so hard to define with just one word or sentence. It’s as if the concept is a picture puzzle and each definition, although true in itself, only forms one piece of the puzzle.
Through Crochet-A-Longs, designer Dedri has found a community that constantly reminds her of the essence of Ubuntu: connection and mutual caring for all.
This beautiful pattern is for a hexagon blanket and is available in three different sizes, using three different Scheepjes yarns. Therefore, you can make a Small, Medium or Large version. The Small Blanket is crocheted using Scheepjes Cotton 8, Medium is crocheted with Scheepjes Stone Washed and the Large is crocheted with River Washed XL and Stone Washed XL.
The CAL starts on Wednesday 12 September and will last for 12 weeks. Every Wednesday afternoon, a new part of the free pattern will be released. The pattern will be available as a PDF file. The PDF files can be downloaded through the Dutch and the International Facebook group and from scheepjes.com. Handy video tutorials will accompany each pattern. These will be made by Esther from It’s all in a Nutshell.
The CAL will be available to order from Deramores from 22nd August 2018. In the interim, you can be notified of when the CAL will be available to order by clicking the EMAIL ME WHEN AVAILABLE link detailed above.
