The 2016 Scheepjes Crochet-a-Long was designed by the late Marinke Slump (aka: Wink) from www.acreativebeing.com and was the final design she was working on at the time of her passing. Marinke wanted to make a crochet blanket dedicated to the sea and all the beauty it stands for. To honor Marinke's and her family's last wish, Scheepjes and a dozen creative bloggers who knew her and her work very well, decided to finish this CAL in her spirit. This Basic Kit for the CAL includes 14-100g balls of Scheepjes Colour Crafter (a very soft, machine-washable 100% acrylic yarn), and a CAL 2016 special edition tribute label you can choose to put on the edge of the blanket when you're done. The approximate size of the completed blanket is 45" by 59".
The theme of the Scheepjes 2016 CAL is: Last Dance on the Beach. The CAL will begin on April 20th and will last 14 weeks. The result will be a beautiful, textured sampler blanket. Each Wednesday afternoon Scheepjes will release a new pattern via Facebook and the Scheepjes website. Each pattern will be supported by video.
Included in the price of the kit is a small donation to Mind, a UK mental health charity fund, in order to help others battling mental illness.
