Hello bug lovers and crochet adventurers!
Grab your research equipment (magnifying glass, flask of tea, crochet hook, scissors and yarn) and follow us into a world full of magic and science, a microcosm of tiny creatures and big dreams! In this book you will find not only a charming selection of crochet patterns to create scrabbling beetles, beautiful bugs and fluttering butterfly crochet amigurumi, but also a wonderful story to read out loud and ponder on: a tale about growing up; accepting change and the power of dreams.
Watch tiny creatures hatching from their eggs, look on as they munch through a green world, and be astonished at their marvelous transformations when they finally slip out of their cocoons. The wings and hats are interchangeable so you can use the patterns in this book to create new outfits for your little insect friends. Give your caterpillar a new set of wings for every day of the week, or cover your beetle in the most colourful wing suits. Be inspired by nature to make creatures of your own creation. It's a great little world full of possibilities. We wish you lots of fun on your journey of discovery and learning!
With a great deal of excitement, Scheepjes proudly presents the YARN bookazine no. 7! This biannual magazine is absolutely overflowing with patterns to create and collect, featuring a diverse range of ideas and inspiration for your upcoming projects.
The theme of this issue of the YARN bookazine is Reef. Although to most of us the vast depths of the ocean remain an intriguing mystery, for the plants and animals thriving in this incredible ecosystem, it is a place of belonging and creating new life. So let us take you on a journey through those vast depths, as YARN bookazine no. 7 celebrates all that lies beneath the world’s waters through four key themes. To begin this journey, we see anemone, showcasing wild unconventional forms and expressive colours. Then watch as we swim towards the gentle sway of a kelp garden, their twisted blades bending and bellowing as if a wind were passing through the waves. We keep on moving, as shimmering beams of light break the water’s surface revealing an intricate coastal reef, finally to see the striking pinky peaches of coral adorning it.
With 16 knitting and crochet projects, the YARN bookazine no. 7 will undoubtedly provide hours of inspiration to all crafters alike!
