Scheepjes d'Histoire Naturelle 2020 CAL Kits

Scheepjes proudly presents the d’Histoire Naturelle Official Scheepjes 2020 CAL & Read-A-Long designed by Scheepjes Blogger Christina Hadderingh from A Spoonful of Yarn blog. The design for this spectacular crocheted blanket is inspired by the many galleries of the breathtakingly beautiful Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle (Museum of Natural History) in Paris, which is highlighted in the book All The Light We Cannot See by the award-winning author, Anthony Doerr. Participants are encouraged to read along with the book as they crochet to make the most of this extraordinary Crochet and Read-A-Long experience!

During the Crochet-A-Long, both adventurous beginners and experienced crocheters from around the world will have the opportunity to follow a unique journey in creating the stunning d’Histoire Naturelle blanket. The CAL & Read-A-Long will begin on September 23, 2020. Over the course of 11 weeks, the FREE PDF crochet pattern will be published in 6 parts, covering 1 to 2 weeks, rather than weekly releases as in previous CALs. The pattern will be available in English (UK & US), Dutch and German in the Official International and Dutch Facebook groups as well as on Scheepjes.com. Additional languages may be made available during the CAL as participants are provided with a translation template in the Facebook groups to translate the CAL into their own languages.

CAL Timeline

The Scheepjes 2020 CAL is both a Crochet-A-Long and a Read-A-Long! This means our weekly content throughout the CAL will be a little different than our previous CALs. Instead of weekly pattern parts, we are releasing larger pattern parts that cover 1 or 2 weeks and weekly Bookclub Sunday materials.
