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!

Strickmich! Big Bowl is the more voluminous version of her little sister, the Strickmich! Bowl Accessory bag: Open it up and it will expand to a useful bowl that holds your yarn balls when knitting. Sturdy cotton with a wool felt bottom protects your precious yarn, and knitting from it is a breeze. When you close it, you can carry it with the attached sling. Strickmich! Big Bowl holds 250 to 350 g yarn (on the ball or knitted) plus your needles.The smaller version (Strickmich! Bowl – accessory bag) is suitable for knitting accessories or small projects with up to 100 g yarn.The yarn and decoration in the pictures are not included.Strickmich! Big 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. Fair pay and good working conditions are an essential part of the project.
