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 tention 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.

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!
Nuts About the Sea
Lovely yarn kit for Nuts About Squares CAL. I like Scheepjes Sunkissed yarn quality. Though quite long delivery time (it took two weeks to Sweden)
Scheepjes stone washed
Am using this for nuts about the earth cal. The colours are lovely and it feels nice and soft but some of the colours seem to be fluffier than others. However it is working up well and I am happy with it
