Product information "Miss Babs Tarte"
"Tarte" is an amazingly smooth yarn that has great drape and luster due to some Tencel and Nylon added to super soft merino fiber. It's a great choice for both shawls and cowls that you intend to wear and wash a lot, and it's even suitable for socks. One skein (500 yd / 4.3 oz / 457 m / 122 g) is enough to make a decently-sized shawlette like Hitchhiker or Easy. The cowl "Leaf me this way" has been designed by Martina Behm especially for this yarn.

Leaf me this way
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
Cowls are a great invention: All the beauty of a knitted shawl without messy ends dangling somewhere. Even better when the cowl has an element of decorative lace! “Leaf me this way” is constructed seamlessly and starts with a simple garter stitch triangle. You can adjust the circumference of the cowl to your liking before you close it to form a tube – seamlessly, just by knitting back and forth in relaxing garter stitch. The lace pattern is worked on the outer edge for maximum effect: a pretty lace pattern that fits so well with the autumn theme of the yarn. The colorway “Heirloom Pumpkins” was dyed by Miss Babs especially for this pattern.

Double Hitch
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
The Hitchhiker is taking a few extra turns with this little shawl: Instead of the simple shark-tooth border you know from the original, “Double Hitch” features a double zig-zag border with extra little squares situated between the shark teeth! This looks especially nice in a wildly colorful handdyed yarn, as the colors stack up very prettily within the tiny squares. “Double Hitch” is seamless, of course, the squares are added modularly between the teeth and everything just comes together nicely during the knitting. Use up all the yarn you have and enjoy this pretty cousin of your favorite shawl!

Shawlettes in garter stitch are my favorite: They look great in a colorful yarn, they are squishy and warm your neck, and they are so easy to knit that even beginners will enjoy making them. This shawlette is named “Easy” because it is just that: So simple to knit, but the biased construction and change of knitting direction will bring out the best of a multicolored yarn. It is long and skinny and can be wrapped around several times, or tied with a knot – and it uses only 459 yards of fingering weight yarn. Length: approx. 200 cm (80 inches), Depth approx. 24 cm (10 inches) You start in one corner and knit a long triangle until 50% of your yarn is used up. Then you change the direction and modularly add a second triangle (no seaming required) – and you have made a colorful addition to your wardrobe!The pattern "Easy" is part of Martina Behm´s book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".



Circular Knitting Needle Addi Lace
Needle Size: 3,25 mm / US 3
Addi Circulars with 80 cm (32 in) length and extra sharp tips are ideally suited for most of Martina Behm's designs. These needles are great quality "Made in Germany", and they make even the most complicated lace pattern a pleasure to knit. The needle sizes are printed on the cable (metric and US). Addi lace needle tips are made nickel-free.
