I am so SO happy to share this amazing news with you today!
Remember this bag I made, and this blanket, and the one I’m making now? They’re all made with Scheepjeswol yarn, a Dutch yarn brand. I really like this yarn brand, but until recently it wasn’t available outside of The Netherlands.
Well, guess what? Deramores.com is now stocking it! YES! :D
Deramores.com is now stocking Soft Fun, Soft Fun Batik, Invicta, Cotton 8, and the newly released Stone Washed yarn, which is already a big hit here in The Netherlands.
I got some Stone Washed skeins a few weeks ago, and turned them into this bag!
I’ve written up the pattern for this bag, and it’s available for free on Deramores.com! :) If you’d like to make this bag as well, stick around for the next 4 weeks, and join me and Deramores in the Beach Bag CAL!
What do you need to make this bag:
– 9 skeins of Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn, one of each colour (or 8 skeins of 1 colour)
– a 4mm hook

– 1 meter of rope

– bag lining
If you want to join in, just head on over to Deramores.com to download the free pattern for this bag. There’s a coupon in there for 10% off your next order as well, so you can get those yummy squishy skeins of Stone Washed with an incredible discount! :)

I am very excited about this new CAL and I cannot WAIT to see all your gorgeous beach bags! I will of course be joining in on the fun, and showing you how I lined my bag, how I attached my handles, and give you tips & tricks along the way.
