This yarn is like a magic trick! "Crazy Zauberball" by German manufacturer Schoppel consists of 75% wool mixed with 25% Polyamide and has the most stunning color variations. Perfect for interestingly constructed hats! The color changes make the knitting extra fun, and the result looks just cool and special. The yarn is very light and durable and becomes soft after the first wash. One skein (100 g) are sufficient for an adult sized hat (ca. 50-55 g) plus a kid sized hat (ca. 40-45 g). It's also perfect to make a prettily striped Hitchhiker, Lintilla, Puerto Montt or Easy shawlette. Yarns by Schoppel are made with mulesing-free wool from South AmericaPlease note that each Zauberball is an individual and may look different than the ones shown in these pictures.The samples "Easy" and "Ecken + Kanten" from the book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions" were made out of 100 g (one ball) of this yarn each, colorways "Sanduhr" and "Papagei"
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".
My patterns Obvious, Shore Hap Joy, Rose Candy, Shrug & More and Corners, Edges, Stripes were written specifically for this yarn.

Strickplaner is all new! We have listened to your feedback and made it a "timeless" planner – with lots of pages for projects and notes, but without a dated planner, so you can use and keep yours for many years! What would you like to knit?
All knitting projects start with this question: sweater, sock or hat? Poncho, mitten or teddy bear? Sometimes, a skein of yarn that has been living in your stash for a long time, will tell you what it wants to become. And sometimes, it is really hard to decide which yarn to use: Alpaca or Merino? Self-striping or semisolid? Handpainted or kettle dyed? It goes on with the needle size, the size you choose for the project itself and the number of stitches to cast on. And then you may decide to add a couple of increases at a certain point or some yarn overs, or to make the cuffs in a different stitch pattern.
This little book will help you keep track of all your decisions concerning your knitting and knitting projects: Strickplaner – your knitting planner will help you to choose the best projects for a relaxed knitting time, to choose the best yarn and to organize your projects and notes in a clever way. If you like, you can use the timelines to plan your projects over the year. We have added information about imperial and metric units and measurements, yarn weights and types of fiber. There are pages to keep track of your yarn purchases and wish lists for everything knitting-related. There are pages for knitting books, fun podcasts and knitting events. Jot down your ideas for future projects in the “Ideas” section of the planner, and write down every detail when you cast on in the “Projects” pages. And for everything else that pops up in your creative knitter’s brain, there are lots of pages for lists, notes and sketches, complete with indexes to make sure no idea is lost.
Strickplaner wants to be your trusted companion for all your knitting adventures: small enough to carry everywhere, useful and totally independent of Wi-Fi or electricity.
