Product information "Hitchhands PDF Download"
Here are the mittens to match your Hitchhiker scarf and Hitchhat! Unusual biased construction meets nice, cozy garter stitch that looks fabulous in a hand-dyed fingering-weight yarn and keeps your hands warm, plus a fun sharktooth border at the cuff. The cuff is tighter than the hand due to short-row-shaping, such that the mittens will not come off by themselves. For the symmetry-freaks among you: These mittens are reversible and mirror each other perfectly – because they are actually the same but one is worn inside-out!

You start with a provisional cast-on and knit the mitten flat in garter stitch. I provide a video-tutorial for the short-row-shaping of the cuff. The spiky border evolves as you go. Later, the two edges are grafted together, leaving a comfortable thumb opening. The thumb is knit in the round.

Correct gauge is crucial for this pattern. Please choose your needle size accordingly. If you whish to make smaller mittens, you can opt to knit them at a gauge of 32-34 stitches/10 cm (4 inches).

It is also suitable for small projects like socks or hats or can be used as a pencil case. Just put it on the table in front of you and go! And when you're done, everything will be well protected by the sturdy organic cotton fabric. Strickmich! Bowl is sewn by Manomama in Augsburg, Germany after an idea by knitwear designer Martina Behm: Sturdy organic cotton fabric that will hold its shape and a reinforced bowl bottom with wool felt from German sheep who live in the Black Forest. The contrast-color zipper looks great with the Strickmich! logo tag and is made in Germany as well.  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.

Tough & Toasty
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
Wearing little fingerless mittens like these somehow makes me feel a little tougher – maybe that’s because leather versions of this are frequently worn by bikers, cyclists or people operating some kind of heavy machinery. Well, the only machinery I tend to operate is my keyboard, but these mitts do a fabulous job keeping my hands toasty! They are made of a luxurious, but resistant blend of wool and alpaca, so they are cozy and warm but will wear well, no matter what task is at hand. They are intentionally short in order not to cause bulk when wearing them with long sleeves and to make sure you have easy access to your wristwatch. One pair uses up only half a ball (25 g) of yarn and can be finished in one or two nights of knitting – great if you need a last-minute gift. The unusual construction works (almost) without purl stitches and can be adapted to the recipient’s hand size during the knitting, so you can substitute yarns and knit them at a different gauge if desired. This pattern is written for one long circular needle. If you would like to use dpns, please be aware that there are no instructions given for how to use them with this pattern and you would have to make the necessary adjustments yourself. Yarn used in the samples: Blacker Yarns Brushwork, colors Wash, Stipple and Scumble.The pattern "Tough & Toasty" is part of Martina Behm´s book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".

Hitchhiker
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
Garter stitch. It‘s simple, it‘s warm and squishy, stretchy and reversible and it makes any variegated, hand-dyed sockyarn really shine. So here‘s Hitchhiker: It is a narrow, slightly asymmetrically shaped triangular shawlette that can be wrapped around the neck several times. The ends are long enough to tie it with a knot. One of the short sides of the triangle features a saw-tooth border that evolves naturally during the knitting and gives the shawl its unusual shape. Because the knitting starts at one end, you can stop anytime, bind off and end up with a useful neckerchief, shawlette or shawl. A perfect project to relax in between more complicated ones, also very suitable for beginners and young knitters. The name? Well, if you use a 150 g skein of Wollmeise 100% Merino for this, you can make how many teeth? That‘s right, 42. The answer to the question about the universe and everything, according to Douglas Adams‘ wonderful book „The Hitchhiker‘s Guide to the Galaxy“. So don‘t forget your towel, and happy knitting!The pattern "Hitchhiker" is avaliable in Martina Behm´s books "The Hitchhiker Collection" and "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions"
