PLEASE NOTE THAT CYAN WILL BE A 25G YARN CAKE FROM A 50G BALL
The Yarn Packs are here ?
Here is the place for you to buy a complete Yarn Pack for the Dia de los Muertos CAL by The Guy With The Hook (you can find him on Instagram) which is launching on Sunday 4th October 2020. So plenty of time to get the yarn in before the pattern gets released over on Mark Roseboom’s website (theguywiththehook) or via his Ravelry page (this is my preferred way, because then it stores in your own library).
But back to yarn pack specifics. Each pack will contain Scheepjes Catona in the colours & sizes specified on The Guy with the Hook’s information page about the CAL.
You will receive the following:
100 grams – White:105 Bridal White (2x50g)
150 grams – Black:110 Jet Black (1x100g, 1x50g)
25 grams – Green:512 Lime
25 grams – Yellow:208 Yellow Gold
25 grams – Light blue:397 Cyan
25 grams – Pink:251 Garden Rose
25 grams – Purple:508 Deep Amethyst
25 grams – Sand/Camel:179 Topaz
Total amount of yarn = 400g
About Scheepjes Catona yarn: Since its launch in May 2015, the beautiful Scheepjes Catona yarns have become a go-to yarn for many crafters. Made from 100% mercerised cotton, this yarn is naturally breathable and characterised by a soft, delicate sheen. Create a range of garments, accessories, homeware items and toys for kids with this indispensable yarn!
Scheepjes Catona is a Fingering weight yarn, suitable for needles/hooks size 2.50-3.00mm.
Once you have the yarn all you will need are the regular notions, 2mm and 3mm hooks and of course the pattern (you will need to visit The Guy with the Hook for that). The pattern will be available in English, Dutch, Spanish, German, Danish and Swedish.
