Square Squared

Here’s my new hat “Square Squared”! You start with a square that is knit in the round and continue working back and forth until the hat is complete. No seaming!

The hat can be adapted to the desired size during the knitting, and gauge is not important. For my sample, I used a set of mini-skeins by Manos del Uruguay (“Fino Minis”) in the colorway “Flora”.

Find the pattern and the yarn in Strickmich! Shop. The pattern is also on Ravelry.


You like a little lace, but not too much? You like projects in solid colors and want to make the most of that single skein of yarn you bought? “Rosida” might be just the knitting project for you!

Rosida is worked on the bias out of a beautifully soft organic yarn in the exclusive color “Fuchsia” that was dyed especially for the members of Strickmich! Club 2022. Now we have a few of those 125-g-skeins left in Strickmich! Shop for you – but only as long as supplies last!

The pattern is written so that even beginners in lace knitting will be able to follow. Rosida can also be enlarged if you use more than one skein of yarn. Important: Please use your kitchen scales to determine how much yarn you have and how much of it to use in Parts I-III.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and in Strickmich! Shop, where you will also find the yarn.

Graffiti Park

When Miss Babs – one of my favorite dyers of the planet – asked me to design something for her knitting club, the only possible answer was: Yes! I love her yarns and it’s always a pleasure to work with them.

“Graffiti Park” uses the construction of one of my most popular designs, the “Hitchhiker”: you start with just a few stitches, knit longer and longer rows and make a long triangle that is k nit on the bias. Plus: you can use up all your yarn! “Graffiti Park” features a geometric lace pattern that is easy to knit and has a great effect.

The pattern is now available on Ravelry and in Strickmich! Shop, where you will also find beautiful yarns to go with the pattern.

Concrete Flower

Meet “Concrete Flower” – it’s a swoncho! This cool sweater-poncho hybrid is made out of less than 100 g of a super light, super fluffy yarn and is perfect for traveling with you as it can be tucked away in any small corner of your luggage.

Throw it over when you need a little extra warmth around the shoulders and back, or wrap it around your neck as a shawl.

The yarn “Babysilk Lace” by Kremke Soul Wool is available in many beautiful colorways in Strickmich! Shop, where you can also find the pattern. And the pattern is also on Ravelry, of course!

Liebe Hannah

A shawl for cold days: “Liebe Hannah” is huge and will warm you whenever you need it. Winter may come!

In my sample, I have knit up almost seven skeins of Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Merino Joy. If you prefer a smaller shawl, you will need fewer skeins.

Find the pattern in Strickmich! Shop and on Ravelry. We also have a few suggestions for color combinations of the lovely yarn, that we also carry in Strickmich! Shop.. Enjoy!
