Tip
Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Merino Joy
Color Rosy Green Wool: 105 Brombeersorbet
This yarn is pure joy: 100% Merino superwash from Argentina, spun in a traditional mill in the UK, GOTS-certified (i. e. produced animal- and eco-friendly) – and soooo supersoft! I do not know many yarns that feel as good as this next to your skin – so it's ideal for shawls, hats and scarves as well as baby clothing. My patterns Matchmaker (DK-Version) and Naiada, as well as Braidsmaid, Heaven & Space, Buds & Bumbles and Brickless are perfect with this yarn, but also my hat patterns Tensfield, Langfield, Blunk the Hat turn out wonderfully in this yarn.The "Melange" colors of Cheeky Merino Joy by Rosy Green Wool have an interesting, almost rustic look to them – while being just as soft as their solid cousins! This is achieved by dyeing a part of the white merino fiber in a dark color before it is spun in to yarn. The colors that are dyed on the skeins will then have a beautiful heathered effect.The sample "Knitters DNA" from our book "Hitchhiker Collection" was made out of two skeins of this yarn, colorway "Sea Green". The sample "Rose Candy" from our book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions" was knit out of 1 skein of this yarn in color "Eismeer" and 1 skein in color "Nachthimmel".  My patterns  Obvious, Shore Hap Joy, Shrug & More and Corners, Edges, Stripes were written specifically for this yarn.

Amano Puna
Color Amano: 9001 Nazca Grau
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.

Obvious
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
A stole so big, so soft, and with a geometric pattern that makes it both interesting but very simple to knit, with no lengthy cast-on or bind-off to worry about: That’s “Obvious”. It came to me when I was looking at my schematics for “One for the Books”, a  book cover I designed. It suddenly became obvious that one could use that construction for a stole, too –and so I did! “Obvious” is entirely worked in garter stitch in five of your favorite colors. Made out of an extremely soft, GOTS-certified Merino yarn, it will surely be one of your go-to projects to work on, and when it’s finished, your go-to piece to throw over your shoulders when the days get colder. Obvious, right? The beautiful yarn is Cheeky Merino Joy by Rosy Green Wool that we also offer as a kit with this pattern. If you would rather pick your own favorite colors, you will find the whole color palette here. Colors used in the multicolor sample: Moos, Nachthimmel, Brombeersorbet, Holz and Schwarzer Kater. Colors used in the pink sample: Isar Kiesel, Cornwall Schiefer, Schwarzer Kater, Pfingstrose, Wildrose.

Viajante
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
– no purling required! – I love long, triangular shawls: They are just the thing to keep your neck and shoulders warm during winter. But then I thought: How about making one that, instead of just being a flat piece of fabric, is three-dimensional, knit in the round and doubles as a big loop, hood and very big cowl? Well, here it is: Viajante (Portuguese for ”traveller“) takes your knitting to another dimension! You can use an entire skein of Wollmeise Lace that will result in a 220 x 60 cm shawl. You can use less yarn if you want it to be smaller, the pattern is adaptable. Viajante is basically a very long and narrow triangular tube. Used flat, you can wrap it around your neck several times or put it on your shoulders as you would with a shawl. Open it up at the lace border and pull it over your head, and it will keep your entire upper body warm. If you wish, you can use it to add a dramatic asymmetrical silhouette to your wardrobe. Best thing: If you forgot your hat, you can just pull the narrow garter stitch part over your head and hide your ears from the cold. It is so versatile you will not want to leave the house without it! Viajante has a clean, classic look in stockinette stitch that is particularly pretty in a slightly variegated, very light yarn. The lace mesh border is really easy to knit (even for beginners) but can be replaced by a more complicated lace pattern or a simple ruffle if you prefer. It is a long, relaxing knit without any purl stitches that yields a spectacular result. Here’s a video that shows how to wear Viajante. Here’s another video that shows you how to do the increases. Viajante fits all sizes as the narrow part is supposed to be draped around the neck such that any shoulder width can be accomodated. The mesh border has a circumference of roughly 300 cm. If you wish to make a bigger neck opening (which reduces the total wingspan of the shawl), you will find instructions in the pattern.The pattern "Viajante" is part of Martina Behms book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".

Brickless
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
“Brickless” was designed for the Miss Babs 2012 Knitting Tour, and was exclusive to the members of the Tour for six months. Berlin in Winter is colder than most other big German cities – when travelling there, a big, cozy shawlette like this will come in handy! The beautiful colors are reminiscent of bright city lights in dark winter nights. The shape of the shawlette is an asymmetrical, long triangle, formed by rows that are getting longer and longer as you go. They are worked in different simple, but very effective patterns that make them look a little like a skyline of tall houses. These skyscrapers are not built with bricks, but concrete and steel – hence the name, „Brickless“. And also: No more bricks in the wall that used to divide Berlin.The pattern "Brickless" is part of Martina Behms book "The Hitchhiker Collection".
