Scheepjes encourages you to experiment with color in the new Scheepjes Color Lab CAL. For 12 weeks long, Scheepjes Blogger Rachele Carmona of Cypress Textiles takes you through this intriguing CAL (Crochet-A-Long) that challenges you to push your limits in the wonderful world of color. The CAL starts on 11 January 2023 and the first Tips & Tricks will be shared the week before. The design, based on different motifs, gives the adventurous crocheter complete creative freedom to create countless color combinations, in order to create a unique blanket. The pattern of the CAL is suitable for both beginners and the advanced crocheter. Scheepjes offers numerous supporting materials, such as Tips & Tricks, blog posts and video tutorials in Dutch and English for right- and left-handed crafters, created by Scheepjes Blogger Esther of It's All In a Nutshell Blog. Scheepjes also invites each participant to the official Facebook groups, where support and expertise are always available in the form of experienced moderators and admins. Of course the (inter)national Scheepjes Community is also there to help you and encourage you! The pattern for the CAL is revealed in parts each week and is available as a free PDF file via the Scheepjes website and the official Scheepjes Facebook groups.
