Our own kits
To celebrate this wonderful project, we have put together these kits in beautiful Bellissimo 8 extra-fine merino. The original blanket uses Scheepjes yarns and we have done our best to match the colours in our own versions. You can also see our Wren cotton kit version here. If you want to make your own, please let us know and we'll be very happy to help you select colours.
The kits contain enough yarn for the Medium version of Sophie's Universe, which has a finished size of 1.4m x 1.4m. Plus you'll save 10% off the full price of the yarn.

The story of Sophie
Sophie’s Universe was a mystery crochet-along (CAL) hosted in 2015 by Kimberly Slifer and designed by Scheepjes Blogger Dedri Uys. The CAL started on the 18th of January 2015 and ran for 20 weeks, with parts being released weekly on a Sunday. Even though the CAL has now finished, the online community around it is still thriving and it is not hard to find a group where someone is making Sophie, either individually or together.
To reminisce and create new memories, in 2020 Scheepjes hosted a ‘Summer Reunion’ and very special Sophie’s Universe 5 Year Anniversary Make-A-Long. During the 2020 MAL, designer Dedri took crafters on a wonderful trip down memory lane. She shared photos of the original Sophie’s Universe and some new colourways made especially for the anniversary celebration by herself and some of her dear friends to help inspire crafters! The Summer Reunion & MAL ran from 1 July to 31 July 2020, and was be hosted in the Official Scheepjes Facebook Group where participants received help from Dedri as well as fellow crafters around the world on how to get started with a Sophie’s Universe Blanket. This group is the place where crocheters can continue to share their already made blankets and/or share their new make with fellow crafters from around the world!
Thousands of crocheters have already created their own Sophie’s Universe blanket, with over 7000 projects on Ravelry. It is a crash course in crochet and a wonderous adventure! The complete pattern is available so all crocheters can craft at their own pace. Find out all about it on Dedri's blog.
