Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Merino Joy

Product information "Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Merino Joy"
This yarn is pure joy: 100% Merino superwash from Argentina, spun in a traditional mill in the UK, GOTS-certified (i. e. produced animal- and eco-friendly) – and soooo supersoft! I do not know many yarns that feel as good as this next to your skin – so it's ideal for shawls, hats and scarves as well as baby clothing. My patterns Matchmaker (DK-Version) and Naiada, as well as Braidsmaid, Heaven & Space, Buds & Bumbles and Brickless are perfect with this yarn, but also my hat patterns Tensfield, Langfield, Blunk the Hat turn out wonderfully in this yarn.
The "Melange" colors of Cheeky Merino Joy by Rosy Green Wool have an interesting, almost rustic look to them – while being just as soft as their solid cousins! This is achieved by dyeing a part of the white merino fiber in a dark color before it is spun in to yarn. The colors that are dyed on the skeins will then have a beautiful heathered effect.

  • The sample "Knitters DNA" from our book "Hitchhiker Collection" was made out of two skeins of this yarn, colorway "Sea Green".
  • The sample "Rose Candy" from our book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions" was knit out of 1 skein of this yarn in color "Eismeer" and 1 skein in color "Nachthimmel".

Liebe Hannah
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
A shawl to keep you warm: “Liebe Hannah” (German: “Dear Hannah”) is so big that you can wrap yourself in it or fold it lengthwise as a voluminous scarf. Who needs a winter coat when you have a shawl like this? The inspiration for this pattern was the literary character “Hannah” from a book that I love very much. * Hannah always misses the opportunity to buy herself a warm winter coat and keeps freezing in the cold Berlin winter. But with this shawl, I am sure she will be fine! The fun construction of this shawl will look fab in your favorite colors (find kits in Strickmich! Shop). Bonus: You (almost!) don’t have to cast on or bind off. * Alena Schröder: “Junge Frau, am Fenster stehend, Abendlicht, blaues Kleid” (German: “Young woman, by the window, evening light, blue dress”). Unfortunately, it has not been translated yet, but I am sure it will as it has been a huge success here in Germany.)

Rose Candy
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
Rose Candy was the last pattern of Strickmich! Club 2015. Warm and fun – that’s what a knitting project for the cold season should be like to cheer us up during the dark days of winter. Make a cozy stripey cowl in garter stitch, just knitting back and forth and joining the parts modularly. No purling, no seaming, just pure fun with stripes! If you have twice the amount of yarn available, you can make your cowl longer so that it doubles as a very warm scarf – the sweet icing on the cake of our Strickmich! Club year 2015! The yarn is an animal-friendly supersoft merino in a very special, limited colorway that will make your cheeks glow with joy. Here is a video in which I talk about the yarn and the design: Cast-On-2015-4 from Martina Behm on Vimeo.The pattern "Rose Candy" is part of Martina Behm´s book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".
