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".

Shore Hap Joy
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
Dark skies and blue waters, pebbly beaches, brown seaweed, blackened wood and stormy gray clouds – those are the colors of the very north of Germany: Schleswig-Holstein, my home. What shall I say? I grew up here, and despite having lived in warmer and friendlier parts of this planet, I would not want to be anywhere else. The climate is a good excuse to wear wool (almost) year-round, especially around the neck and shoulders – areas that are most affected by winds and weather when taking a walk outside. My interpretation of the hap is inspired by the colors of Schleswig-Holstein, which also seem to be the colors most loved and worn by its inhabitants – probably because they are stain-proof and  flattering at the same time. Traditional festive dresses of the islands of the North Sea are dark brown with blue trims, and sailors, a frequent sight in the cities with big harbors, used to wear blue and white striped uniforms. The shape of my hap is that of a modified sailor’s collar with a triangular instead of a square back. This struck me as especially useful, as it can be wrapped and tied in various ways around your shoulders and is likely to stay put and keep you warm, even if you are working around the house and garden, carrying firewood or sweeping your yard. The long ends of the hap could be tucked into the front of an apron or skirt – which is probably why I found a shawl shaped like this one in the Flensburg Museum. But I am sure you will  find your own flattering way to wear this interesting shape. Worked in a modern smooth and lightweight superwash merino yarn, it will wash well and keep you good company for many years to come. Made entirely in garter stitch, the knitting process is easy and relaxing and will easily fit into your life, no matter how busy. We carry the yarn used for this pattern (Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Merino Joy) in many pretty colors in our shop.  The design "Shore Hap" was originally published in the Book of Haps by Kate Davies, knit out of fingering weight yarn. If you would like to make the shawl in a fingering weight yarn, I recommend using the pattern from the Book, which is NOT included when purchasing this pattern. "Shore Hap Joy" was was re-written for a sportweight yarn.

Obvious
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
A stole so big, so soft, and with a geometric pattern that makes it both interesting but very simple to knit, with no lengthy cast-on or bind-off to worry about: That’s “Obvious”. It came to me when I was looking at my schematics for “One for the Books”, a  book cover I designed. It suddenly became obvious that one could use that construction for a stole, too –and so I did! “Obvious” is entirely worked in garter stitch in five of your favorite colors. Made out of an extremely soft, GOTS-certified Merino yarn, it will surely be one of your go-to projects to work on, and when it’s finished, your go-to piece to throw over your shoulders when the days get colder. Obvious, right? The beautiful yarn is Cheeky Merino Joy by Rosy Green Wool that we also offer as a kit with this pattern. If you would rather pick your own favorite colors, you will find the whole color palette here. Colors used in the multicolor sample: Moos, Nachthimmel, Brombeersorbet, Holz and Schwarzer Kater. Colors used in the pink sample: Isar Kiesel, Cornwall Schiefer, Schwarzer Kater, Pfingstrose, Wildrose.
