The 2018 Scheepjes CAL is designed by Scheepjes Blogger Dedri Uys. The theme is “UBUNTU – The belief that we are defined by our compassion and kindness towards others”. The word Ubuntu is a Nguni Bantu term meaning “humanity towards others”, but it is much more than that and so hard to define with just one word or sentence. It’s as if the concept is a picture puzzle and each definition, although true in itself, only forms one piece of the puzzle.
Through Crochet-Alongs, designer Dedri has found a community that constantly reminds her of the essence of Ubuntu: connection and mutual caring for all.
During this crochet-a-long you will crochet a beautiful Hexagon blanket designed by the talented Dedri Uys from LookatWhatiMade. The CAL will begin on Wednesday the 12th of September and will run for 12 weeks, ending the beginning of December. You can crochet along in three different sizes. Each size is crocheted with a different gorgeous Scheepjes yarn.
The Ubuntu Small pack will contain:
- 20 x Scheepjes Cotton 8
- Official Ubuntu CAL vegan label
- Official Scheepjes Ubuntu CAL wooden button
- 1 set vintage stitch markers
You will need the following size crochet hooks:
Width – 104cm
Side – 60cm
Please note: There is no printed pattern for this CAL. Each pattern piece will be made available as a downloadable pdf on Wednesdays 13:00 Dutch time / 12:00 UK time. You can access these from the official Scheepjes Facebook Groups or via the Scheepjes website.
