The Making Of A Mushroom- Let the Shroom-along begin!

I'm so insanely excited about this! Not only is this my first pattern release since joining the Scheepjes Bloggers Group but it's being ran as a "Mini Make Along". so it's going to be fully interactive and whole bucket load of fun!

I've popped some extra info below just to make this Shroom-Along run as magnificently as possible! Below you'll find info about stockist of the yarn, about sharing your makes on social media and of course the pattern (English and Dutch versions. Thanks to Carmen Jorissen for the Dutch translation)
I do hope you enjoy!!!!

Purchasing your yarn for the Shroom-Along:

Within the pattern you will find a complete list of the tools, yarn and hook that are required for the make along. That being said, the pattern is written in a way that is easily adaptable to the size of tin you are using, as well as the yarn you may decide to use.

The great thing about Scheepjes is the shades of yarn run across the yarn ranges. I used Scheepjes Cahlista for my shroom, but you could definitely make the pattern in another weight of yarn using the same colours (Catona maybe?). You could even mix the colours up a little, it's your shroom after all!

Just for a little help though, I've popped a list of stores below, inking directly to the page with the colours of Cahlista that I used. You will also notice that some stores are doing a colour pack, so you can purchase all of the necessary colours in one easy click.

Alternatively, you can also find a list of Scheepjes stockists here.
