The Scheepjes „Get Connected“ MAL – Part II

We are diving into week to of the SCHEEPJES “Get Connected” MAL but first of all I want to thank you all for participating and for the many encouraging words and likes you give to each other on social media, especially in the official SCHEEPJES groups where the main action is happening:

OFFICIAL Scheepjes – International Group


Official Scheepjes – Nederlandse Groep

You really restored my faith in social media in general. If you are not already a member of these groups, join them you will find a lot of inspiration and a loving crafting community there!

This week we do a little round up and I want to show you few color combinations I really liked.

Please remember that even if this is a Make A Long we all work in different speed. This is not a competition, do not feel stressed if you see someone who has already finished a cushion. The pattern is out there and it will be there even after the MAL. I hope you all have fun with the patterns and the MAL so far. Next week we are going for the decreases and I will tell you a few things about the wrap design.

I need to be a step ahead just to be able to show you the next step next week. So my finished square is fresh from the hook, using Scheepjes River Washed Nile and Scheepjes Stone Washed Amazonite.

We also had a little poll about my border color on Instagram and in the Official Scheepjes – International Group.

The winner was Scheepjes River Washed Wheaton. And I, of course follow your command.

I also want to remind you of the amazing step by step tutorials made by Esther of It’s all in a Nutshell. I think it is fantastic that she gives a lot of people the opportunity to visually learn a new technique. A big, big thank you that you put a lot of knowledge, time and love into this videos. It is appreciated by many!

  1. Hi Martin, round 107, dutch translation has a mistake in it. In the repeat is a 3st missing. It should read (3v, 3st, 3v, 1st, 3v, 3st).

      1. Hi Martin

        I can’t seem to answer on your site, but it’s on Ravelry where the mistake is in the dutch pdf.

      2. I just checked it and you might have downloaded an older version. The actual pdf has the right stitchcount. You also should have received an email that you can download the newest version.
