Nuts About Squares CAL
Scheepjes are making a blanket with 35 lovely squares designed by 11 talented crochet designers. Contributing designers are Dedri Uys, Helen Shrimpton, Polly Plum, Sigrun Hugoey, Melissa Green, Heather Gibbs, Julie Yeager, Margaret MacInnis, Susan Stevens, Aurora Suominen, and Tatsiana Kupryianchyk.
Each square has been carefully selected to ensure that the squares work together well in their look and feel. Most of the squares are textured and have an artistic look about them.
There are three colorways available for this CAL:
- Scheepjes Color Crafter (Nuts about the Sea) - blues & greens
- Scheepjes Sunkissed (Nuts about the sky) - deeper tones
- Scheepjes Stone Washed. (Nuts about the Earth) - earthy tones
- Each colorway contains 6 colors and has its own look around the central theme “Earth, Sea and Sky”.
Depending on which kit you have and your personal tension your blanket will be approximately the following sizes. The Color Crafter blanket will be about 130cm x 180cm, the Stone Washed blanket about 115cm x 160cm, and the Sunkissed blanket about 100cm x 140cm.
The CAL will last 15 weeks and starts March 31, 2017. Each week there will be English video tutorials to show you how to make the squares for that week as well as links to the original written patterns in English and Dutch.
You can find all weekly information at the It's all in a Nutshell blog. Along with the official CCC Social Group on Facebook.

The yarn is beautifully soft and the square instructions are easy to use. I would definitely recommend the pack!
Nuts about Squares CAL
Received my wool for the Nuts about Earth blanket last week, then spent a whole evening downloading all of the patterns - I think if you are ordering a pack - which was quite expensive - the patterns should be printed and included, and video links available when needed. I am looking forward to starting this soon.
So far so good
I bought the Nuts about the Sea colour pack and it is a lot brighter than it looks in any of the pictures, which is fine if you like bright colours. The yarn is pretty nice to work with, it can get a bit splitty at times though (and my husband thinks it's squeaky!). I am just about to finish off my ninth square and I am a little concerned if I will have enough yarn to do the whole thing but I am excited to get it done as I have seen so many beautiful completed ones. I am learning a lot from it, and I can see improvements from one square to the next and the written instructions so far have been clear, I haven't used any of the video tutorials yet. Delivery and packaging where all fine. The only thing that would have been good would be to have the patterns all available in one place.
Beautiful yarn, but no pattern!
Sorry chaps, I may be a bit of a Luddite but when I spend a lot of money on a kit I would like to receive a printed pattern with it, nit be forced to go online, hunt for it and download and print it piecemeal to complete a project. It really ruins the enjoyment for me!
