Bits and Bobs
This semi-annual magazine published by Scheepjes is brimming with stylish patterns to make and collect. The patterns are very diverse and the projects are affordable to make.
The theme for this edition is Folk. Each country has its own style of folk art, which reflects its culture and offers outsiders an insight into tradition, people and history. In this issue, the projects are inspired by the Quakers of West America up to the peaks of the Alps. So you come across fillet crocheted, but also fair-isle knitting and punch needle handicraft.
In this issue of YARN bookazine is also sprinkled with a little party, because of the great Christmas projects in it.
With 17 knitting and crochet projects, this YARN bookazine is again a source of inspiration for every craftsman!

Sheepjes whirl comes in a host of scrumptious colour ways. Made from a blend of 60% cotton / 40% acrylic to produce projects that are lightweight and breathable. Unlike other gradient yarns, Whirl has a generous twist to enable speed while working the yarn and to help prevent splitting. The beautiful drape of this yarn makes it perfect for shawls, accessories, garments and stylish home décor projects. Whirl has a unique twisted plied section, which gives it a characteristic ‘flavour’ all of its own! This Extra Large yarn cake holds an enormous 1000 meters of softly colour changing yarn, more than enough for a large shawl or wrap. Each colour change is carefully tied in an optimum way to ensure the knot can be discretely hidden within your stitches.
Recommended hook/needle size 3,5 / 4,0 mm 40 degree gentle wash, dry flat
The whirlettes are designed to work perfectly with the Whirls.
