Grinda Shawl MAL
From the 11th of July a new Scheepjes Make-A-Long will begin! Designed by Tatsiana from lillabjorncrochet.com, the Grinda MAL is inspired by small Swedish islands, the nature of Grinda and the magical sea view!
The result of this FREE MAL is a beautiful shawl, made with just 1 yarn cake of Scheepjes Whirl or 3 yarn balls of Scheepjes Whirlettes. There's also a possibility to crochet a larger version, combining a Whirl or Wooly Whirl with a Scheepjes Whirlette. Every week, for the duration of 5 weeks, a small part of the pattern will be released for FREE and support is being offered through the Scheepjes Facebook groups. Find more information about the Make-a-Long via Tatsiana's blog. Patterns will be available in English (UK), Dutch, Swedish, Czech, Norwegian, German, Portuguese and Arabic.
If you are an impatient crafter (and who isn't) and you want to skip the 5 week wait, you can also purchase a printable pdf version of the entire pattern from Lilla Björn's blog for a nominal fee. This is a great way to show support for a designer who brings so many beautiful patterns your way.

The Grinda Shawl can be made in any colour of Whirl. Made from a blend of 60% cotton / 40% acrylic to produce projects that are lightweight and breathable. This Extra Large yarn cake holds an enormous 1000 meters of softly colour changing yarn, more than enough for a large shawl or wrap. Scheepjes Whirl is available in no less than 39 colourways.
Scheepjes Woolly Whirl
Scheepjes Woolly Whirl is the warm alternative to Scheepjes Whirl and perfect for the colder seasons. This extra large yarn cake made of 70% cotton and 30% wool has extra long color changes. This Extra Large yarn cake holds an enormous 1000 meters of softly colour changing yarn, more than enough for a large shawl or wrap. Scheepjes Woolly Whirl is available in 4 colours.
You can also crochet the Grinda Shawl with 3 Whirlette colours of your choice. Whirlette is a 100g ball (455m!) of exactly the same yarn as Whirl, but in a single colour, which co-ordinates beautifully with many of our Whirl yarn cakes. Whirlette is available in 19 colours.
