Recently I read about how making your bed in the morning and putting on a pretty bedspread can make a real difference for your day: Minutes after getting up you have already done something to turn your home into a more pleasant place. What used to be chaotic is now neat, a true joy to look at and lifts your spirit! That sounded great to me, but I did not have a bedspread that I liked. So – of course! – I knit one. In soft and squishy, beautiful and simple garter stitch. Also modularly, so there is no sewing involved, but totally reversible (even the joining lines look good from both sides) and with a geometrically intriguing design: Each triangle is knit in a different direction, but each one features a right angle (hence the name). With fairly big needles in a luxurious aran-weight yarn mine was done in about three weeks. However, the pattern works with any yarn from your stash (gauge is not important) and can be made in any size: You could make a tiny baby blanket or a lap blanket for those cozy winter evenings on the sofa using aran or worsted weight leftovers you have in your stash (you will find detailed information on how to adjust the size and yarn amounts in the instructions). Bonus: There are almost no purl stitches involved in making this. A soothing and easy knit, also suitable for beginners.

You start by knitting the smallest triangle which also determines the finished size of the blanket: The long side of this triangle is half the width of the resulting rectangle. Then you continue knitting the next triangle in a contrasting color, changing the knitting direction and joining both triangles as you go. And so on until you are ready to bind off.

Rosy Green Wool Lovely Merino Treat
Color Rosy Green Wool: 062 Isar Kiesel
The yarn we have been waiting for! "Lovely Merino Treat" is the latest addition to the Rosy Green Wool range, and with 210 m / 230 yards per 100 g skein it has the perfect weight for sweaters and warm shawls, right in between the beloved "Cheeky Merino Joy" and "Big Merino Hug" yarns. Of course, it's just as soft and comes in the same beautiful colors as the other Rosy yarns. Spun out of extremely soft, mulesing-free merino fiber, it's a pleasure to knit with and to wear. And to wash, as it's a superwash yarn and can be washed in the machine. As always with Rosy Green Wool, their yarns fulfil the very demanding criteria of the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS): Every step of the production must be animal-friendly and not harm the environment. Also, fair wages and working conditions for everyone involved are required. Treat yourself to this lovely yarn!

Amano Puna
Color Amano: 4009 Korallrot
Sustainable Softness from Peru Extra warm, extra soft and extra good for our planet – that’s the way we love a beautiful yarn, and the amazing alpaca yarns by Amano are just that! The fiber comes from cooperatives in Peru which employ the latest methods to ensure an animal-friendly environment and minimal impact on the surroundings. The high plains of the Andes are home to three and a half million alpacas. They have been living in this area for more than 5000 years and learned to thrive despite the rough climate and scarce food supply, earning their wool a reputation to be the most sustainable animal fiber there is. Alpaca fiber is significantly warmer than wool from sheep, it is very soft and has an attractive lustre – a dream for any knitter. It is processed by a spinning mill in the south of Peru to become one of the luxurious knitting yarns by Amano: blended with silk, merino or cashmere or pure as Baby or Imperial Alpaca in gorgeous, vibrant colors inspired by the textile traditions of South America.  Puna is made from 100% Baby Alpaca, yardage is about 250 meters / 273 yards / 100 g, so it's perfect for large but light, warm shawls like Naiada (two skeins of this yarn, colorway "Kornblumenblau"). The pattern is available here in our shop or in the book "The Hitchhiker Collection"  Martina has designed her knitting pattern "Loops" especially for this yarn.The sample "Loops" in our book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions" was made out of two skeins of this yarn: One in Korallrot, the other in Bordeaux.
