A lighter fingering weight yarn between a lace- and a sockweight, Katahdin 437 is spun from the lustrous, long fibers of the wool from Bluefaced Leicester sheep. This fiber is a perfect canvas for Babs’ amazing colors, giving the yarn a beautiful depth and a beautiful, slightly shiny finish. It's great for crisp lacy shawlettes but also makes durable socks.

It is absolutely no secret that I love long, triangular shawlettes, because they are easy to wear and look great. And sometimes I wish I had something to warm my arms on chilly evenings, when I am just wearing a T-Shirt or a tank-top. Something that will stay in place when I move, goes over everything and adds a splash of color. So I made „Sleeves“:  It is a shawlette that you can put your arms in, because the long ends are actually tubes. You will be able to dance in it without fear that it might come off! The knitting is pleasant and easy, mostly knit stitches with a few construction details that will keep you interested.Pattern NotesI recommend a fingering or sport-weight yarn, but the pattern is written such that you can use any other yarn (gauge is not important). You will just have to try it on your arm and decide how long you want your sleeves and neck opening to be. The wider you make your arms, the longer it will be in the back. In an appendix, key stitch numbers for five sizes are provided.  My version (which is a generous size M) used 250g of Wollmeise Pure, taken from ten different Mini-Skeins of „Taste of Wollmeise“. You can as well choose two entire skeins à 150g. Plan to use more yarn for larger sizes. If you are using multiple colors, do the color changes at the beginning of the rounds or at the beginning of a right-side-row.

Panoramic Cowl
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
So cozy, so comfy, so colorful: Broaden your horizons with Panoramic Cowl! It’s a great project to round off our Strickmich! Club motto “Naturally Nature” of 2020, as the colorway (“Landscape”) and the construction celebrate the beauty of what is around us. “Panoramic Cowl” is just the thing to add a little color and warmth to your winter wardrobe! The construction is unusual but very simple and a pleasure to knit. The yarn is creatively dyed and feels amazing when wearing it. Your neck and chest will be warm and protected from chilly winds outside, and nothing will come off or be exposed. Ideal for wearing when riding your bike, skiing, hiking or just taking a walk with your favorite four- or two-legged friends to enjoy the panoramic views in your neighborhood.  This pattern was exclusive to members of Strickmich! Club during the first six months after its publication in 2020. The colorway "Landscape" was dyed exclusively for us by Tieke Garne.

Snowflake Party
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
First exclusive Pattern of Strickmich! Club 2016. This pattern was exclusively available to members of Strickmich! Club during 6 months after its release in February 2016. Tiny snowflakes are my favorite things in nature: They are fascinating geometric little creatures, delicate and short- lived. When I take a walk in winter and the wind blows some of them on the sleeve of my coat, I look at them with my kids, and they make all of us smile. The shape of the water molecules forming them is such that snowflakes will always have six arms and a hexagonal outline, which makes them hard to incorporate into knitting. So when I found a little six-armed lace snowflake motif, I thought they would look lovely having a ball on a cute shawlette. It is knit on the bias and is mostly garter stitch, so it is a relaxing knit with a little snow-flakey twist. Measurements: Length 185 cm (74 in) Depth 42,5 cm (17 in) Find the beautiful Merino-Silk blend I used for this at http://www.zauberwiese.com   Cast-on-Event Video No. 1 – 2016 from Martina Behm on Vimeo.
