Scheepjes Bookazine 13 - Wadden


In this issue we share the joy and wonder of the special environment of the Wadden, an area of sea and around 50 islands and sandbars that stretches across the coastlines of the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. The Wadden Sea was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status a few years ago, and in our 13th issue of YARN Bookazine we explore its diverse habitats, enormous variety of wildlife, and significance to Dutch culture. 

YARN Bookazine 13 Wadden features 17 modern crochet and knitting patterns inspired by the land, sea and animals of the region. The colour palette features bright shades reflecting the berries and lighthouses found scattered across the Dutch Wadden islands, with more neutral colours taken from the beaches and waters to offer a soft contrast. Featuring a range of yarns and fibres, from crisp cottons to cosy pure wool, the projects are made in a range of crochet and knitting techniques. An additional latch hook rug design completes the selection of patterns. 

The lookbook is divided into four chapters, each named after an aspect of the Wadden: Landscape, Coastal Life, Holiday Time and Tides. The designs range from garments to toys and reflect the diverse flora and fauna that define the region, the drama and atmosphere of the landscape, and the pastimes shared by local residents and visitors to the area, such as cycling. 

The Wadden theme is further explored in interviews with artists and bloggers who have been inspired by the dynamic geography and nature of the region. In-depth features share details of its natural sights, cultural heritage and popular tourist attractions.
