Smooth Sailor
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
This is the 2nd pattern from Strickmich! Club 2016 Smooth Sailor is whatever you would like it to be: Put your arms through the holes and wear it as a shrug. Fold it lengthwise and pull one end through one of the holes, and it will turn into a cozy scarf. Stick your head through one of the openings and one arm through the other and it becomes an asymmetric poncho. Fold it in half such that both holes lie on top of each other and pull it over your head as a capelet. The special 3-dimensional construction makes it all possible! Smooth Sailor is the perfect canvas for a beautiful handdyed laceweight, consisting of a plain stockinette body with a little ruffle added at the end. It also is a wonderful project to take on your vacation: Work the cast-on and the setup at home, and have a mindless and lightweight project to knit on in your deckchair. Smooth sailing!  Find the yarn used for this pattern (the beautiful Manos Marina) here in our shop.   Here is a video in which I demonstrate the various ways to wear Smooth Sailor.  Cast-On-Event2-2016 from Martina Behm on Vimeo.

Lapislazuli
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
A lovely, airy laceweight in an interesting color does not need an intricate stitch pattern to show off its virtues! While knitting up this shawl, you can perfectly relax. No purling required, and apart from the occasional yarn over or knitting two together there are no special stitches involved. The construction is a stretched circle, simple but elegant.  Using only 100 grams of yarn, this shawl is unusually big and versatile: Spread it out and lay it over your shoulders to keep warm, or fold it up and wrap it around your neck as a scarf. “Lapislazuli” is named after this famous blue gemstone because my son Edgar (age 9) had read about it in one of his books and was really keen on naming my next blue design. Have a fun, relaxing time knitting! In this video I talk about the yarn and the the design.

Jasminde
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
This pattern was part of Strickmich! Club 2014. If you are a beginning Lace knitter, this is for you!  When I first saw a skein of yarn in this beautiful berry-pinkish color, I immediately felt that it needed to be something very, very pretty. Definitely lace, but not too frilly. Geometric and delicate, but simple enough to make it an enjoyable knitting experience. So here is “Jasminde”, a triangular, asymmetric shawl that you will be able to wrap yourself into and instantly feel beautiful! With only 150 grams of “Rohrspatz & Wollmeise Pure“, you will knit a generously sized shawl that is 250 cm (100 inches) long and will not only be pretty to look at, but also keep you warm when autumn arrives. The pattern is flexible regarding the amount of yarn you have and the size you want your shawl to be: Just leave about 10% of your total amount of yarn for the edging, and you will be fine. The English version of the printed pattern does NOT contain a written-out version, CHARTS ONLY.The pattern "Jasminde" is part of Martina Behms book "The Hitchhiker Collection".
