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: approx. 200 cm (80 inches), Depth approx. 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 Behm´s book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".

Feldmark PDF Download
Language: Deutsch
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.

Ecken + Kanten PDF Download
Language: Deutsch
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 Behm´s book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".
