Inspired by the shades, lines and textures of his local landscape, designer Martin Up North Landscapes Shawl showcases a palette of earthy, environmental tones. The soft, muted shades of Scheepjes’ sustainable Scrumptious yarn feature a gentle heathered effect, adding texture and serenity to a striking geometric Tunisian crochet pattern. Choose one of Martin’s two colourways or curate your own, inspired by your own surrounds – your view, a park, or what you see on a walk.
This intermediate Make-A-Long is suitable for adventurous beginners through to advanced crocheters who are interested in learning the Tunisian crochet entrelac technique (using a standard crochet hook) or practising this method with a relaxing project.
Every MAL week starts on Wednesday around noon CEST. In addition to the support in our Official Facebook Group(s), Martin will share tutorial photographs and videos on his website.

About the Designer
Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, Martin began his crafting journey after moving ‘up north’ to Sweden in 2010. He crochets to keep his hands busy between stints outdoors capturing the beauty of local nature with his camera. Designing gives him a sense of balance, "the contrast between the freedom of wilderness and the wish to control my hook and stitches gives me inner peace". He often incorporates geometry, texture and a range of techniques into his designs. Read more about Martin.
