Product information "Rüsch "
R uffles are fun to wear and fun to knit – and they will make any simple outfit a little special: This little elegant scarf is called “Rüsch” (“Rüschen” is German and means “ruffles”). It was inspired by no one less than Prince himself, who wore a ruffled shirt in his “Purple Rain” video. “Rüsch” has just the right length to be slung around the neck and fastened with a knot, arranging the ruffled ends in the front so they look a little bit like the ruffles on Prince’s shirt. But there are other ways to wear it if you play with the wide ends and tuck them in! “Rüsch” works very well with that one special skein of hand dyed yarn you have been keeping in your stash for a special occasion – but it will look great in the yarn we chose for this sample, which is the softly variegated “Vivacious 4-ply” by Fyberspates. The scarf is knit lengthwise and can be worked longer and wider if you wish (you will need more yarn if you choose to). The ruffles are worked with short rows, which is an easy technique that I will show you in a video. With this pattern, you can use up all the yarn you have – just keep on knitting until it is gone!

Fyberspates Vivacious 4-Ply
Color fyberspates: 607 - Deep Aqua
A beautiful hand dyed merino yarn with a high twist and fascinating colors: hand dyer Jeni Hewlett likes to dye in layers, so the colors will get an unusual depth. It's beautiful to work with, does not split and wears beautifully as it is really soft around the neck. A great choice for sweaters and accessories alike! The weight and yardage are ideal for many of Martina's shawl patterns.

Uschitita Pure Sock
Color Yarn: TGIF
What an amazing yarn! And these colors! Here at Strickmich!, we could not believe our eyes when we opened the shipment from Uschitita, as it was all so beautiful. The yarn base "Pure Sock" is the same that we used for the second project of Strickmich! Club 2022. Here, you find this pure merino yarn base in six different colors, all quite typical for the Uschitita dyeing style: quite muted base colors with fun and unusual speckles. This yarn will make your knitting exciting and the end result absolutely stunning! It's perfectly suited for garter stitch shawls as well as lace patterns, as the multicolors are not so dominant that they will eat up all your efforts.

Sophiste PDF Download
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
Zig-Zags have been a vital part of my journey as a knitwear designer: the pattern that started it all – the Hitchhiker – has a shark tooth edging, “Baltic Summer” is zig-Zagged through and through, “Match & Move” is one huge Zag, and “Rockin’ Rows” also features lots of ziggy-Zaggy. Now comes the time for a rectangular stole with lots of zig-zags, and just because it’s so much fun and looks awesome: on the bias. The yarn is a super-soft, squishy organic yarn named “Lovely Merino Treat” that makes the shawl extra voluminous and warm. Use it for warmth on your shoulders on cool summer evenings and as an extra warm scarf underneath your coat in winter. If you like, you can use up all 400 grams of yarn by working the red contrast stripe more often. The pattern includes instructions on how to make the shawl wider and longer (for which you will need more yarn). You will need 20 stitchmarkers to make this: 10 in red and 10 in blue. If you want to make it wider, you will need even more! Colors used in the samples:Grey/white/red: Edelweiss, Isar Kiesel, Kugelfisch and Rotbuche. Blue/pink: Tiefer Ozean, Distel, Blauwal, Rosa Orchidee.
