The new Scheepjes YARN Bookazine 15 Metamorphosis is inspired by the constant changes in nature. During lockdowns, we were drawn towards nature close to home. With our favourite yarns in hand, we saw nature flourish and that's how we saw the light at the end of the lockdown tunnel. Backyards and balconies transformed, weeds captured our imagination and the buzzing of insects and the beautiful sounds of birds caught our attention - things we were not consciously aware of before. Metamorphosis pays homage to the metamorphoses that take place in nature. Beholding these small miracles allowed us to emerge as more conscious versions of ourselves after the lockdowns.
YARN Bookazine 15 takes you through the theme of Metamorphosis through four chapters, each one dedicated to a special animal that we can find in our gardens: the Damselfly, Garden Tiger Moth, Honey Bee and Muslin Moth. With the 16 crochet and knitting patterns you can transform fibres into the most beautiful clothing items, fashion accessories, home decorations and toys. Fine embroidery in many of the patterns draws our attention to the details of nature. How about a beautiful crochet shawl with a damsel pattern, a knitted unisex sweater with an embroidered butterfly, a handy storage basket in the shape of a beehive or a cuddly muslin moth butterfly in a cocoon to play with? The theme of Metamorphosis is further explored in interviews with artists who are inspired by recycled materials, architecture and technology. Informative features about solitary honey bees and the Shceepjes’ support of biodiversity complete this Bookazine edition.
