Product Description

The very first Scheepjes CAL was released 10 years ago. Scheepjes is celebrating this with no less than four new projects. What's extra special this time is that you can crochet or knit all these projects! So you can pick either a Crochet-A-Long (CAL) or a Knit-A-Long (KAL). The Dawn Chorus CKAL Experience is a tribute to the most beautiful songbirds.

After the beautiful Goldcrest Scarf (item no. CKAL2024-GC) by Martin Up North and the Blue Tit Cushion (item no. CKAL2024- BT) by Liz Barraclough, it's Esther's turn from It's All in a Nutshell. She designed the Bullfinch Blanket, a wonderfully warm and lovely colourful blanket, for the third kit from the Dawn Chorus CKAL series. The blanket is inspired by the bullfinch and the pattern is suitable for beginner, intermediate and experienced crocheters and knitters. You knit or crochet the blanket with a huge Limited-Edition Scheepjes Mega Whirl yarn cake, in join-as-you-go motif-based patterns. The beautiful Mega Whirl with a gradual colour gradient holds almost 3 kilometres of yarn! In addition to the yarn, the kit also contains some nice extras.

About the Bullfinch Blankets
