Product information "Ecken + Kanten PDF Download"

Long, triangular scarves are just the perfect thing to keep one‘s neck warm – and men want them, too! So here is „Ecken + Kanten“ which is German for „Corners and Edges“. When we say that someone possesses „Ecken und Kanten“, we mean he is a strong, sometimes challenging character, which makes him even more lovable. This garter stitch scarf is an easy knit, while the modular construction keeps things interesting. A good beginners‘ project or a relaxing one for advanced knitters. The result is perfect for men (and women) big and small. The pattern can be adapted to any amount of yarn: 100g of fingering weight will result in a shorter scarf that is still big enough to wrap around and wear like a cowl, while 150g will result in a longer scarf.

You start knitting at one corner until 25% of your yarn is used up.Then you change the direction of knitting 3 times, modularly forming 4 triangles and bind off.

The pattern "Ecken + Kanten" is part of Martina Behms book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".

Schoppel Edition 3
Color Schoppel: Bodenschätze
Just as pretty and colorful as the Crazy Zauberball, but a little more voluminous and made out of 100% soft, mulesing-free Merino fiber from Patagonia: the very cute "Edition 3" balls by Zauberball maker Schoppel in southern Germany. Without any artificial fiber content, they are perfect for everyone who likes their knitting natural, but colorful. The yardage is perfect for substantial shawls (300 m per 100 g), and if you use 3.5 to 4 mm (US 4-6) needles, you will get a pretty drape and a pleasant fabric, and – bonus! – they will be done in a little less time thatn your usual fingering weight shawl. The long color changes make the knitting so much fun and will make any Hitchhiker, Hitchhiker Beyond, Easy or Puerto Montt into a beautiful one-of-a-kind piece. If you are making little shawls for kids, one ball will be enough – but if you are making a shawlette or scarf for a grown-up, we recommend using at least 3 balls (150 g) of this yarn.For "Hitchhiker" we recommend 150 g (3 balls) of this yarn.  For the sample "Strider" from our book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions" we recommend 150 g (3 balls) of this yarn.

Kremke Soul Wool Lazy Lion Sock Yarn
Color Yarn: 10 Earth Wind no Fire
This is probably the softest sock yarn in the whole wild world – and it's made out of mulesing-free Merino fiber from South Africa. Hence the name! Besides the softness, the best thing about this yarn is that it is color-changing: As you knit, exciting stripes in a number of color combinations will emerge. It's perfect for an interestingly constructed shawl like Easy, Puerto Montt or Match & Move. "Lazy Lion" is superwash and consists of 25% Nylon, so it will be durable enough for socks and other hard-wearing garments – all of this while being incredibly soft! The sample "Trillian" from our book "Hitchhiker Collection" was made out of one skein of this yarn, colorway "Brittas Favorite".The sample "Puerto Montt" on the cover of "Strickmich! Knitting Innovations" was knit out of 2 skeins of this yarn, colorway "Flower Bed". The knitted cover of Strickplaner 2020 was made out of this yarn in the colorway "Bunch of Roses".

Feldmark PDF Download

Like freshly harvested fields: The stripes of a pretty self-striping yarn in “Feldmark” (it roughly means “fields in a rural area” in German) remind me of the surroundings of my village here in the very North of Germany. They look really cool in the special construction of the shawl that features changes in the direction of knitting. Everything comes together seamlessly, of course, and is super-easy to knit. It is long and narrow and perfect for wrapping around several times. I love the yarn “Edition 3” by Schoppel (a sportweight) for this project, as it is super soft and squishy and makes a very cozy little shawl. As gauge is not really important for this one, you can choose other gradient yarns in a different weight if you wish.

Easy
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
Shawlettes in garter stitch are my favorite: They look great in a colorful yarn, they are squishy and warm your neck, and they are so easy to knit that even beginners will enjoy making them. This shawlette is named “Easy” because it is just that: So simple to knit, but the biased construction and change of knitting direction will bring out the best of a multicolored yarn. It is long and skinny and can be wrapped around several times, or tied with a knot – and it uses only 459 yards of fingering weight yarn. Length: ca. 200 cm (80 inches), Depth ca. 24 cm (10 inches) You start in one corner and knit a long triangle until 50% of your yarn is used up. Then you change the direction and modularly add a second triangle (no seaming required) – and you have made a colorful addition to your wardrobe!The pattern "Easy" is part of Martina Behms book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".

Strider
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
Take a deep breath, enjoy the view, walk a few miles in a bizarre landscape that was left behind by the gravel mines surrounding our village – that’s what I enjoy every day. “Strider” is a scarf that has proven immensely useful during my walks: In the middle, it is pointy as a shawl for extra warmth on the chest, but the ends are square. This fun geometric construction is accentuated by a pretty color-changing yarn. Entirely knit in garter stitch with super simple and short instructions, it is perfectly suited for a beginning knitter. Bonus: You can make this bigger by using more yarn – just knit until everything is used up.  The pattern "Strider" is part of Martina Behms book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".
