Aglaisio


A cowl with an interesting construction and just a tiny bit of lace – Aglaisio will be a lot of fun to knit! I designed Aglaisio for the third yarn of Strickmich! Club 2021, and now it’s available to all knitters. And the beautiful yarn by Hedgehog Fibres as well!

Rüsch

Let’s rüsch! This little scarf is so much fun to knit – and will make even the simplest outfit special!

You will need only one skein of fingering weight yarn – use up that special hand dyed yarn that has been sitting in your stash or splurge one a skein that has caught your eye.

The beautiful ruffles are worked by short rows – but don’t worry: I have a video for them, and they are really not hard to do.

The pattern is available in Strickmich! Shop, as well as the stunning yarn we used for the sample (“Vivacious 4-ply” by Fyberspates in Deep Aqua). Also onRavelry!

Sophiste

Here comes “Sophiste” – a stole that is zig-zagged through and through, and (because it’s more fun) on the bias. I have knit my samples out of the beautiful, squishy “Lovely Merino Treat” by Rosy Green Wool. It’s mulesing-free, GOTS certified and one of the softest wool yarns on the planet. “Sophiste” is a big scarf or a medium-sized stole that you can wear over your shoulders or as a scarf around your neck under your coat. Start yours now to be done when the days get colder again!

The zig-zag pattern is fun to knit and easy enough with the use of lots and lots of stitch markers in two different colors. The parts that need to be explained are shown in a video that’s linked in the pattern.

You can work “Sophiste” wider and longer as you please, but you will need more yarn if you do so. Also: more stitch markers! In the samples, I used up one skein of each of the main colors plus around half a skein of the contrast color. “Lovely Merino Treat”, the pattern and the useful stitch markers are available in Strickmich! Shop. We ship worldwide! The pattern is also available on Ravelry. Happy knitting!

Knospe

Knospe (“bud”) is here! A pattern as easy as Hitchhiker and as pretty as Lintilla: Worked entirely in garter stitch, it’s perfect to knit on a long weekend or your next trip to the lake. The scallops are worked by simple decreases and – that’s so special about them – are three-dimensional! A special, beautiful shawlette that is also suitable for beginning knitters. Plus: You can use up (almost) all of your yarn!

I used one skein (150 g) of Rohrspatz & Wollmeise “Pure” for this in our club colorway “Buddleja”. This yarn was exclusively available to our club members during one year, and now we have a limited amount for you in Strickmich! Shop.


The pattern, as always, can be found on Ravelry and in Strickmich! Shop. Happy knitting!
