Leftover yarns, what to do with them?


Last week I gave you the pattern of the 'dots and stripes' blanket, made with Colour Crafter Velvet from Scheepjes. When you make this blanket, you'll discover that when you are finished, you have leftovers. As you can see on the photo above. This is hardly unavoidable, but you can do fun stuff with those leftovers. What I did with them, I'll show you next week. I do hope you can knit?

Vorige week gaf ik je het patroon van de 'punt en streep' deken, gemaakt met Colour Crafter Velvet van Scheepjes. Wanneer je deze deken maakt, zul je ontdekken dat wanneer je klaar bent, je blijft zitten met restjes. Zoals je op de foto hierboven kunt zien. Dit is nauwelijks te vermijden, maar je kunt leuke dingen te doen met de restjes. Wat ik met ze heb gedaan zal je volgende week laten zien. Ik hoop dat je kunt breien?

Stripes, stripes, stripes!

I designed a new shrug. This fun striped one.

Ik heb een nieuwe bolero ontworpen en deze vrolijke gestreepte is het resultaat.


I used beautiful yarn from Scheepjes, Cotton 8. I love working with it. It is soft and comes in 48 great colors. It doesn't split and it washes well.

Ik heb hiervoor Cotton 8 van Scheepjes gebruikt. Het is een heel fijn garen en het is een van mijn favoriete garens. Het is heel zacht, het splijt niet en het houd zich perfect in de was.



It is perfect for summer clothing for adults, children and baby's. You can use it for amigurumi's and blankets. I'm sure you can think of more possibilities.

Het is perfect om zomerkleding mee te haken, voor volwassenen, kinderen en baby's. Het is geweldig voor amigurumi's en dekens. Je kunt vast nog meer mogelijkheden verzinnen.


This shrug comes in 5 sizes; S, M, L, XL and XXL

Deze bolero komt in 5 maten; S, M, L, XL en XXL

I used 5 colors for the shrug. Of each color you need 1 skein. Except for the sizes L, XL and XXL. For the main color you need 2 skeins.

Je bent 5 kleuren nodig en van elke kleur 1 bol. Behalve voor maten L, XL en XXL. Daarvoor ben je van de hoofdkleur 2 bolletjes nodig.
