Strickmich! Club 2018

… that’s four times excitement when unwrapping your package,
four times pleasant surprises when you unpack a brand-new exclusive special skein of yarn,
followed by pure knitting bliss with a new pattern by Martina Behm.

Strickmich! Club will be celebrating its fifth birthday in 2018, and our gift to our member is: More yarn! This time we will have 150 grams of yarn in each single-yarn club package (and 300 grams if you have the double yarn option). So let’s go big together!

Sign-ups for Strickmich! Club 2018 will start on November 6th on our sign-up page.

Strickmich! Club 2018 consists of four new knitting designs by Martina Behm (creator of popular knitting patterns such as Hitchhiker, Leftie, Viajante) plus four skeins of especially chosen, exclusively dyed yarns, carefully selected by Martina for her designs that you will surely enjoy knitting with.

 
Four New and Exclusive Knitting Patterns by Martina Behm
Each shipment will contain a high quality printed booklet with a knitting pattern especially designed by Martina for the Club. The Club patterns will only be available in print in the Strickmich! Club for 6 months. As soon as the pattern is available for sale online, each Club member will also receive a PDF copy to store in your Ravelry Library or on your computer. The designs are perfectly matched to the Club yarn so you can start knitting immediately. This unique combination also makes for a very special project. Therefore, there will be no „pattern only“ version of the Club. Each knitting patten will be available in English (and German), please make sure you select your favorite language at sign-up. Each pattern contains a set of four cubic Strickmich! beads that you can add to your project as your special membership badge.


Strickmich! Club beads added to the 2015 Club project “Thousand Tulips”.

 
Four Matching Exclusively Dyed Yarns
The yarn will be dyed especially for Strickmich! Club and Martinas pattern. The colorway will also be exclusive to the Club for at least 6 months. After that time, the dyers may decide to sell the same colorway in their shops or not. If by any chance you do not like the yarn (it is a surprise after all), there should be many takers. We have seen many Club members wanting more of the exclusive yarn and so there is always someone to trade with. The patterns can be easily knit with a different yarn of the same type. On the other hand, some members have told us that the Club shawl made from a yarn that they would have never bought themselves is now their favorite that they wear all the time… Our color spectrum tends to be more on the cold side, we regularly feature blueish and turquoise tones and cool reds, sometimes a little green, purple or a tiny bit of orange, yellow and brown come into play. However, one shipment always features yarn from the pink-berry spectrum, as this is Martina’s favorite!

Four Times a Year
In Strickmich! Club you will receive a surprise package four times during 2018. The exact shipping dates are a surprise as well. On the other hand, we will ship sometime before our Cast-On-Events so they can serve as orientation points. We do ship all over the world, please make sure to read our shipping information page.

Close to the Designer’s Heart
Martina says: “Strickmich! Club is the one project that is closest to my heart: I work with the most beautiful yarns that were created especially for me and my Club members, and it enables me to provide knitters with a perfect combination of yarn, color, design and pattern. A dream come true! I am especially looking forward to designing with more yarn for each design this year, that’s extra fun! I am happy about every single member and am striving to make the club experience a great one for every one of them. Starting with the choice of dyers, yarn base, color, design, layout, knitting experience, packing the cute little parcels and shipping them – I do work on every single step and personally do take care that in the end, everything adds up. That’s very important to me, because every parcel should bring you pure knitting joy!”

For every club pattern, Martina records a Cast-on Video in which she presents the design and the yarn, so you can have your own little cast-on event at home. Also, whenever a pattern requires a special technique, instructional videos are available on her website – so you do not have to worry that you might not be experienced enough to knit the club patterns.
