Sophie’s Universe part 8

Hey everyone!

Yes, I managed it again. Don’t ask me how, it has been incredibly busy here, but the video for Sophie’s Universe part 8 is done. All the other videos you can also find on my dedicated video page. As of now all my Dutch videos are also available on this site, just in case you speak Dutch :).

I’m still using Cotton 8 yarn from Scheepjeswol, a nice and sturdy multipurpose yarn, to make my Sophie. I used these colors for part 8:

  • Round 62 – 714
  • Round 63 – 649
  • Round 64 – 716
  • Round 65 – 669
  • Round 66 – 661
  • Round 67 – 726
  • Round 68 – 726

The weather was SO good this weekend that I had Sophie drying outside from her wet blocking. The sun was shining and it really felt like spring. But the best part was finding the first daffodils lurking behind a flowerpot and spotting a camellia on the point of exploding. Not much longer now and winter will be a thing of the past!


Have a beautiful day!

  1. Beautiful! Your videos have been so helpful. There’s no way that I would be able to make my own Sophie without them. I’m just a beginner and having the visual is really helping a lot. Thank you so so much!

    Now, what do we have to do to convince you to make videos for the Stylecraft Lily Pond CAL? LOL! I’m only half joking. 🙂


    1. Thank you for the complement.
      I have seen the Stylecraft CAL, but at this moment I don’t have the time for a second CAL. Sofie takes a lot of time to do. I have also committed to making the videos for the next Scheepjes CAL in the spring. Scheepjeswol asked me to make them, so 3 projects at the same time is a bit too much maybe.


  2. Esther your Sophie is gorgeous! Thank you again for your excellent videos they’re so much help! On another note, I hope your father is doing better!


  3. Your videos are great, your explanations of which stitches to use are spot on, thank you. I can follow the written pattern but I enjoy your videos and they make it so much easier. This is such an interesting project, I am really enjoying it. I can’t thank all the team enough for the joy it is giving to me and so many others.

  4. Hi, I’m New to crocheting and thanks to your tutorials I have gotten to part 8, which I would never have been able to without your help, so thank you. Just about to start part 8, looks complicated but with your help I have every confidence in being able to complete it.
