my love affair with scheepjes stonewashed xl

Hi everyone!

Yes, it is true. I am in love. I am head over heels, completely smitten with Scheepjes Stonewashed XL

Don’t believe me? I must be in love because there are now skeins of Stonewashed XL peeping out of every corner in my apartment… Feast your eyes ladies! ;)

Yummmm… It’s good right? :) I love love love the colours of the Stonewashed XL but I also love the muted lovely softness of the grey colour; it looks good enough to dive into!

Which I will, fairly soon, because I am going to make awesome things with this yarn! The grey yarn will be worked up into something wearable and double stranded, and the coloured yarn will become another fantastic winter accessory using Tunisian crochet.

This yarn is the chunky big brother of the regular Stonewashed. It works up with a 5mm hook according to the label, whereas you work the regular Stonewashed with a 3mm hook. But – spoiler alert! – I’m using a 6mm Tunisian hook with the coloured Stonewashed XL, and a 10mm hook with the grey Stonewashed XL! (but of course I’m using that double stranded, so it only makes sense!)

Oooh I just cannot wait to show you what I’ve made already with the grey Stonewashed XL… You’re gonna love it! (if you follow me on Instagram you’ve already seen peeps here and there!)

xo,
