I can proudly present the New Life crochet pattern to all of you. This pattern i actually one that came out really easy as i just had the goal to take one Scheepjes Whirl and use it entirely for a project unknown. It was a nice challenge to just see what i would make out of 1000 meters of yarn. And it has turned out great ! I had an idea to make something where nature would have been involved as i loved this Sippy Sage colorway i had from the Scheepjes Whirls. So i started putting elements together and it turned out in a pattern that holds different phases beginning by planting a seed and in the end see the flowers blossom and bloom.
If you look closely to the pattern you will discover many elements in the pattern. You will find some blossom, some flowers, a lot of leafs and many lace related stitches together. I also thought it would be a fun thing to write this pattern down in way you’ll work through it in phases, each part with a small introduction to the next part. Besides the Whirl version i also made a Scheepjes Stonewashed version to see how this pattern would look in a more bulky way and with different yarntypes. I love how this has turned out and it is hard to choose which one i like more….luckily i don’t have to choose !
The picture above really shows off how beautiful both versions are and that it is really up to you what colors or yarn you choose to make it with. Of course you need to block the pattern very good in the end as it holds a lot of open stitchwork, but it is so worth it.
Of course i also have some general information about this pattern to tell :
