Bamboo Blend Yarn for a New Free Crochet Design

free crochet pattern the curio crafts room thecuriocraftsroom home decor

Isn't this bowl of yarn delicious? A beautiful palette of rich colours for my next free crochet design. I'm not sure yet whether I'll be using all of these balls, but definitely the deep purple and the teal.
The yarn is Scheepjes Bamboo Soft, a gorgeously soft bamboo and cotton blend that I'll be working with for the first time. The plan is to make a cute practical item that is also very decorative. I can't tell you a lot about it yet, but what I can tell is that I'll also be using one of my previous free designs to embellish this one so that it'll have a peacocky flavour :) Yes, I'll take any opportunity to add a touch of peacock feathery goodness.

Now let me tell you a little bit more about this Bamboo Soft yarn. It's is a Fingering weight yarn with a blend of 50% Bamboo and 50% Cotton. Due to the inherent benefits of bamboo fibre, the yarn is very versatile and ideal for making beautifully soft, lightweight garments, wearable accessories and home décor projects. It has a beautiful drape and that's one of the reasons I chose it for this project.
Another reason is that Bamboo Soft is a vegan-friendly yarn, meaning that the fibres and dyes used to create the yarn are 100% plant-based. It also features Scheepjes’ new Recycled Water logo, ensuring that all waste water has been safely recycled and repurposed during the production of this yarn. I think sustainability is so important and being able to work with environmentally-friendly craft products is something I want to focus on more. 
As you can see in the shade card below, Bamboo Soft is available in a selection of 17 rich colours that all work very well together. I think I'll select about 6 different colours for my project. I'll show you more next week!

Blocking

To get the most beautiful result, the shawl needs blocking. Soak in lukewarm water, gently squeeze water out or roll it in dry towel to remove excess moisture. Pin out to finished measurements and let dry naturally.

Scheepjes Whirl and Whirlette yarn

Both yarns are a blend of 60% cotton and 40% acrylic, which makes for lightweight and breathable shawls, or any wearables really. Whirl is a gradient yarn with a very generous twist so that it works up really quickly and it helps prevent splitting. Whirlette yarn comes in single colours, matching the Whirl shades. 
The shade cards show all the 54 Whirl yarn cakes and 44 Whirlettes available.

Spring Mood with the Verdancy Shawl

Shawl wrap scarf crochet pattern the curio crafts room ravelry etsy Verdancy Shawl

I'm very excited to present my fourth shawl design: the Verdancy Shawl. It's a rectangular shawl measuring approximately 48 x 190cm, a very generous size so that you can wrap it around your neck a few times or drape it over your shoulders and let it flow. I think it's lovely for spring with its beautiful green shades and leafy stitch pattern. But of course it'll look fab in different colours too. My tester used a Whirl with purple shades and it looks stunning. She said the stitch pattern in combination with the purple hues reminded her of wisteria blossoms. I'll show you some pictures next time. And next time is next week, when I'll also have the free pattern for you and a PDF pattern for purchase in my Ravelry and Etsy shops that has a few extras like a chart and instructions how to adjust it to any size you like.

Shawl wrap scarf crochet pattern the curio crafts room ravelry etsy Verdancy Shawl

Talking of the stitch pattern...... it may look quite intricate, but I can asure you it's a beginner-friendly make and also quite relaxing. It's only a 12-stitch and 6-row pattern repeat, so once you've worked a few rows you'll be able to continue without a lot of counting. And all the colour changes in the Whirl yarn keep it really interesting and they will spur you on to get to that next colour change as fast as possible. Below you'll find some more information on the yarn used.


In my Ravelry and Etsy shops you can purchase a PDF version of this pattern.

The advantages of the PDF version are:
  • Clear layout with instructions in bullet-point format
  • Stitch Chart

Scheepjes Whirl and Whirlette yarn

Have a good look at the gradient yarn. Soft green on one end and a beautiful saturated green at the other end and so many shades in between. The Scheepjes Whirl and Whirlette yarn I used are just ideal for a shawl like this one.
Both yarns are a blend of 60% cotton and 40% acrylic, which makes for lightweight and breathable shawls, or any wearables really. Whirl is a gradient yarn with a very generous twist so that it works up really quickly and it helps prevent splitting. Whirlette yarn comes in single colours, matching the Whirl shades.

Crochet Shawl Design with Leafy Stitch Pattern Coming Soon

free crochet shawl pattern the curio craftsroom scheepjes whirl whirlette yarn scarf wrap

My new shawl design is coming along nicely! Look how far I've already worked through the Whirl yarn cake. Always such a pleasure to work with this yarn as it works up so quickly and who doesn't like a quick result :) And the stitch pattern is so beautiful and relaxing. I think I'll have finished this shawl by the end of next week. After I've used up all the Whirl yarn, I'll start on the matching Whirlette and use that up as well. I think the total length will be just under 2 metres so it'll be long enough to wrap it around your neck snuggly or to drape it loosely around your shoulders and let it flow.

free crochet shawl pattern the curio craftsroom scheepjes whirl whirlette yarn scarf wrap

The stitch pattern is 12-stitch and 6-row repeat, so once you've worked a few rows you can just relax and see the pattern develop without having to count too much. It looks rather leafy don't you think? The gorgeous green shades are just perfect for it. The stitch pattern does require blocking to really open it up. What I do is I give it a good block every time I've added another 50cm or so, because I find it hard to block a piece as large as this shawl is going to be in its entirety.

free crochet shawl pattern the curio craftsroom scheepjes whirl whirlette yarn scarf wrap

I'm sure in a week or so I can show you the end result as I have only about 50 more centimetres to go. I'll leave you with some info on the yarn and hope to see you back here next week.

Whirl and Whirlette Yarn: The Perfect Combination for a New Shawl Design

free crochet shawl pattern the curio craftsroom scheepjes whirl whirlette yarn

I think by now you know that when I post a picture of Scheepjes Whirl and/or Whirlette yarn, I'm in shawl design mode. This time I've chosen lovely shades of springy green with the Sippy Sage Whirl and the Avocado Whirlette. I have a very relaxing stitch pattern in mind for a shawl that'll be perfect for early spring days. I plan on using all 1455 metres of the two yarns combined, but the shawl will be easily adjustable to any size.

I can't show you anything yet, but next week I'm sure I'll have some WIP pictures for you and in a few weeks' time I'll post the pattern on my blog as well. What I can reveal is that the shape will be a simple rectangle. This is my fourth shawl design and for each shawl I want a different shape or construction. So far I've made an asymmetrical triangle, a dragon tail and a circular shawl.

Whirl and Whirlette yarn

Both yarns are a blend of 60% cotton and 40% acrylic, which makes for lightweight and breathable shawls, or any wearables really. Whirl is a gradient yarn with a very generous twist so that it works up really quickly and it helps prevent splitting. Each colour change (and there are many, which I love because it makes the gradient so subtle) is carefully tied to ensure the knot can be discretely hidden within your stitches. So don’t worry if you come across quite a few ”knots”, or rather “fluffy bits”, because that means one colour thread is replaced by another colour thread that needs to be worked into the yarn. The Whirlette yarn comes in single colours, matching the Whirl shades. Below you can see all yarns available.

Free Crochet Pattern: Star Beam Shawl in Whirl - Fine Art & Merino Soft Yarns

Star Beam Shawl Free Crochet Pattern The Curio Crafts Room Etsy Ravelry

Star Beam Shawl

A little over a year ago I designed three shawls all differently shaped (see below for photos). I really love designing shawls and I can tell you that I'm working on number 4, with ideas for two more. But while I'm busy experimenting with different shapes and stitch patterns, I also wanted to revisit the shawl that is my favourite - although it's very hard to say that as I really love all three. Yet the Star Beam Shawl is special to me as I just love the dragon tail shape.

In between designing more shawls, I wanted a relaxing make with a yarn I hadn't worked with before: Scheepjes Whirl - Fine Art in combination with Scheepjes Merino Soft (yarn details below). So I thought I'd write a quick blog post to show you the result and to link to the free pattern and premium PDF pattern in my shops in case you fancy making one for yourself.

Pattern

You can find the free pattern for the Star Beam Shawl in US/UK terms in an earlier blog post here and the DUTCH pattern here.

In my Ravelry and Etsy shops you can purchase a premium PDF version of this pattern (US/UK and DUTCH).
The advantages of the premium PDF are:

  • Chart
  • Close-up photos
  • Clear layout with instructions in bullet-point format
  • Same graphic design as all of my other PDF patterns
  • You support my work so that I can continue to publish free patterns and offer discount codes

Thank you!

Yarn details: Whirl - Fine Art & Merino Soft

As I mentioned already, I made my second Star Beam Shawl using a combination of Whirl - Fine Art and Merino Soft. Both are gorgeously soft yarns in a combination of 50% Superwash Merino Wool, 25% Microfibre and 25% Acrylic.
Whirl - Fine Art is a 460m yarn cake that comes in 12 different colourways, just as beautiful as the cotton/acrylic 1000m Whirl yarn cakes you're probably familiar with already. Whirl - Fine Art combines with Merino Soft, another Scheepjes' yarn collection. Below you see a very useful photo that shows which Merino Soft colours combine with Whirl - Fine Art. For my shawl I selected Whirl - Fine Art 661 Rococo and Merino Soft 643 Ansingh.

The Lunation Shawl is an asymmetrical triangle shawl or wrap with a large edging at the top end. It's generously sized - height 185cm and widest part 122cm - so that you can wear it in a variety of ways. It's also a really rhythmic make that is very relaxing, but with a more engaging part at the end: a lovely edging consisting of 10 large points.

Pattern Notes
For this shawl you start with the Whirl yarn (751 Liquorice Yumym) from the outside (white). Towards the end of the 175 rows that make up the asymmetrical triangle, you will probably run out of Whirl yarn so then you simply continue with the Whirlette yarn (851 Liquorice). The edging is also worked in this Whirlette yarn and colour.

Instructions                                                                             

Base
Start with a magic ring.
Row 1 (RS) Ch2 on top of magic ring ch (= first dc), ch1, 1dc in ring, turn, pull ring tight.
Row 2 (WS) Ch3 (counts as 1dc and ch-1 sp here and throughout), V-st in top of 3 ch, turn.
Row 3 Beg V-st in first st, ch1, V-st in ch-1 sp (which is in effect the ch3 at beginning of previous row), turn.
Row 4 Ch3, V-st in next ch-1 sp, ch1, V-st in top of 3 ch, turn.
Row 5 Beg V-st in first st, ch1, V-st in next ch-1 sp, ch1, V-st in next ch-1 sp (which is in effect the ch3 at beginning of previous row), turn.
Row 6 Ch3, V-st in next ch-1 sp, ch1, V-st in next ch-1 sp, ch1, V-st in top of 3 ch, turn.
I think by now you will have found your rhythm and it is simply a matter of repeating Rows 5 and 6 until you have a total of 175 rows:
Row 175 is a RS row.
You’ll now have a total of 88 V-sts, 87 ch-1 sps.
Fasten off.

Blocking
To get the most beautiful result, the shawl needs blocking. For blocking you can use blocking mats or Styrofoam. Spray with some water and let it dry naturally.

Whirl and Whirlette yarn

Where to shop for Whirl and Whirlette*

These links will take you to the shops' main page where you can do a search for the yarns you'd like.

UK Wool Warehouse (international shipping)
UK Deramores (international shipping)
UK Black Sheep Wools (international shipping)
CA Knotty House (US + CA)
NL Caro's Atelier (The Netherlands)

Both yarns are made from a blend of 60% cotton and 40% acrylic, which makes for lightweight and breathable shawls (or any other garments for that matter). Whirl is a gradient yarn with a very generous twist so that it works up really quickly and it helps prevent splitting. Each colour change (and there are many, which I love because it makes the gradient so subtle) is carefully tied to ensure the knot can be discretely hidden within your stitches. So don’t worry if you come across quite a few ”knots” or rather “fluffy bits” because that means one colour thread is replaced by another colour thread that needs to be worked into the yarn.
The Whirlette yarn, which I already used for my Moonwish Wrap, has the same blend but only comes in single colours, matching some of the Whirl shades. Another difference is that the Whirl yarn cakes hold no less than 1000 metres and the Whirlette balls 455 metres.
Both yarns have a beautiful drape and that is definitely something I’d want for my shawl designs.
