Perfect for Yarn Lovers

Carefully crafted for yarn lovers, this knitting and crochet holiday embraces all things woolly! Our experienced knitting and crochet expert will be on hand throughout the holiday; joining us on yarn-related excursions and hosting inspirational workshops with a beautifully designed project to spark your creativity.

Dutch Bulbfields and Amsterdam Knitting & Crochet Cruise

Join Carol Meldrum and fellow knitters for the perfect springtime break. Enjoy a 3-night cruise along the Dutch waterways, explore pretty Dutch harbours and visit the world’s largest flower garden, Keukenhof. Your first workshop with Carol will take place on-board too.

Once in Amsterdam we’ll enjoy a full-day tour, visiting the highlights of the city as well as areas popular with local crafts people and as many yarn shops as we can possibly fit in! At our hotel we’ll enjoy two full-day workshops with Carol, taking inspiration from everything we have seen on our travels.

A message from our expert:

Taking our inspiration for the week from all things Dutch, we will dip into the world of colour work and pattern to create a knit or crochet accessory.

Using the stranded knit or tapestry crochet technique, you will develop your own design using a selection of colour work charts, or the more adventurous stitcher will have the opportunity to chart up their own design.

Over the course of the trip we will look at working in the round - bottom up or top down, various increase and decrease methods, how to work from a chart for both knit and crochet, and how to join in and change colour successfully. - Carol Meldrum
