Match & Move

Product information "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.

With a diameter of a little less than 10 inches, this bowl holds everything you need when knitting: circular needles, dpns, crochet hooks, tape measures, needle gauges, pens and pencils... you name it! 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. Fair pay and good working conditions are an essential part of the project.

Obvious
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
A stole so big, so soft, and with a geometric pattern that makes it both interesting but very simple to knit, with no lengthy cast-on or bind-off to worry about: That’s “Obvious”. It came to me when I was looking at my schematics for “One for the Books”, a  book cover I designed. It suddenly became obvious that one could use that construction for a stole, too –and so I did! “Obvious” is entirely worked in garter stitch in five of your favorite colors. Made out of an extremely soft, GOTS-certified Merino yarn, it will surely be one of your go-to projects to work on, and when it’s finished, your go-to piece to throw over your shoulders when the days get colder. Obvious, right? The beautiful yarn is Cheeky Merino Joy by Rosy Green Wool that we also offer as a kit with this pattern. If you would rather pick your own favorite colors, you will find the whole color palette here. Colors used in the multicolor sample: Moos, Nachthimmel, Brombeersorbet, Holz and Schwarzer Kater. Colors used in the pink sample: Isar Kiesel, Cornwall Schiefer, Schwarzer Kater, Pfingstrose, Wildrose.

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.
