Half Norwegian

Product information "Half Norwegian"
We’re in Norway – on a fabulous knitting cruise where we will see the spectacular coastline and enjoy learning about Norwegian knitting traditions. One of them is the Norwegian Star motif that you will find on sweaters, hats and mittens. So I took the Norwegian star, enlarged it, cut it in half and completed it to a triangular shawl: This is “Half Norwegian”! You will need equal amounts of your two favorite colors in a fingering weight yarn – but the pattern will also work in other yarn weights if you prefer. Pick a color-changing yarn for the half star for an extra fun effect! As a bonus, there are (almost) no stitches to cast on or cast off.

This pattern can be worked with yarn of any weight. You will need the same amount of yarn in any weight. For the size depicted (length: 160 cm, depth: 84 cm) we recommend at least 400 m per color. 
The sample was knit out of 2 skeins of "Bio Balance" by BC Garn, colorway "Silber" plus 2 skeins in the colorway "Graphit". 
We offer yarn kits for this shawl in various colors that include the stitch markers you need to make this as a gift!

Manomama is a project by Sina Trinkwalder, who established Manomama in the old textile hub Augsburg in Bavaria, employing people who find it hard to find work otherwise.

Match & Move

I just love the “We’re Different”-Grab Bags from Rohrspatz & Wollmeise: Depending on which kind you choose, you will get a combination of a multicolor and a matching semisolid, hand-picked by the dyemaster herself, who has an unmatched sense of color. What shall I say? I was really surprised when I saw that she teamed up a softly variegated brown-grey with a bold and warm red. I just had to give it a try and get my knitting needles moving! So here’s “Match & Move”, a shawl designed to show off the perfect Wollmeise color combination and use up (almost!) an entire grab bag of yarn. My shawl weighs 286 grams. The unusual construction results in kinked stripes that look really interesting when you wear it. The knitting is plain garter stitch and very relaxing, and the shawl is so big and comfy, it is just a dream to wear. Definitely my favorite shawl so far – and I am determined to order another grab bag, be surprised and knit myself one more. Size of the shawl in the pictures: 200 x 50 cm (80 x 20 inches) 286 g of yarn (140 g of color A and 146 g of color B) Wollmeise Colors: Resi and Zimtapfel (both WD)The pattern "Match & Move" is part of Martina Behm´s book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".

Horizonte
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
Sometimes, when life is loud and complicated, and I just can’t seem to find quiet and calmness, I go out for a walk and look at the sky. A dusty blue paired with light gray clouds is what I will get most of the time here in northern Germany, and the flat landscape will give my eyes and my brain the simplicity I need. Especially when I take a stroll at the Baltic Sea shore, where the sight of the horizon never fails to have a soothing effect on me. “Horizonte” (German: “horizons”) is the simple beauty of the sky, the clouds and the horizon turned knitting: Easy garter stitch with a couple of interesting twists and turns in the construction will provide you with a relaxing knitting time and a beautiful and warm result. Wearing it will remind you that the finest pleasures in life are simple – just like this shawl.
