Pascuali Pinta

Product information "Pascuali Pinta"

A beautiful, slightly shiny and very durable combination of fibers makes "Pinta" by Pascuali so special: Mulesing-free merino wool warms and absorbs moisture, silk adds durability and shine and ramie (viscose made out of a nettle plant) adds smoothness and weight. A good choice for hats, mittens and gloves as well as for shawls you expect to wear a lot. The yardage is perfect for most shawls in Martina's portfolio.

Make a hat that will fit anyone from baby to adult! No matter what kind of yarn you use, what size your head is or what gauge you are knitting at: This hat is adjusted as you go, you can make it tight or a little looser, and you can also choose how long you want it to be. Fold it up or wear it slouchy-style. The interesting 3-dimensional construction looks particularly good in a gradient yarn or your very own handspun, or use scraps of sockyarn. Anything will work! This is a sister pattern to my beanie hat pattern “Tensfield”. “Langfield” is a slouchy hat. If you are looking for a tight-fitting beanie, please have check out Tensfield. Yarn used in the pictues: Zitron Nimbus, color 20. Like “Tensfield”, this hat can be made with your favorite yarn, no matter what weight!

Magrathea is a long and narrow, slightly asymmetrical triangular shawlette that features a squishy garter stitch body and a geometrical lace motif at the edges - just right for spring and early summer! In Douglas Adam‘s book „The Hitchhiker‘s Guide to the Galaxy“, Magrathea is the planet where luxury custom-made planets are built to order. Its planet-building experts are especially famous for designing pretty coastlines – as the lace edging of this little shawlette. It is my third design (after „Hitchhiker“ and „Trillian“) that uses a special asymmetrical triangular construction. Pattern notes: You start at one corner of the triangle, add wider and wider rows and cast off at one of the short sides.The lace edging on one side is worked as you go, the other is formed by the last 30 rows before binding off. 100 g of fingering weight yarn is plenty to make a useful shawlette. Instructions are provided on how to make it larger. Charts only, lace parts are not given as written instructions. If you are interested in how I calculated the stitch count before starting the edge, please have a look here.The pattern "Magrathea" is part of Martina Behm´s book "The Hitchhiker Collection".

Buds & Bumbles
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
Every summer I find myself suddenly without anything hand-knit to wear – even the biggest wool-lovers among us will have to admit that Merino tends to lose its appeal once it’s 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit) or more. So this summer I thought I would be clever and knit myself a shawlette out of a nice cotton yarn with long color changes. It has a cute little bud-stitch pattern that has a subtle lace-like appearance, biased construction and wavy or pointy edges. You can knit it until your yarn is used up, just to the size you love to wear. Knit it now using a cotton or cotton blend so you will have it ready for next summer (unlike me, who finished it just now in the fall), or use a cozy woolen yarn with pretty color changes like Schoppel Zauberball Cotton to be stylish and warm this season. Measurements of shawlette in the pictures: 167 cm (67 in) x 48 cm (19 in) We carry the pretty and amazing yarn Schoppel Zauberball Cotton here in Strickmich! Shop in a number of fun colorways.The pattern "Buds & Bumbles" is part of Martina Behm´s book "The Hitchhiker Collection".
