Strickmich! Club 2019

… 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.

In the upcoming Club year 2019 we will be more exclusive than ever: luxurious, soft fibers and exciting new designs by Martina Behm. For the first time in Strickmich! Club’s history, the yarn colors that will never be available anywhere outside the club.

Sign-ups for Strickmich! Club 2019 are open now on our sign-up page.

Strickmich! Club 2019 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 for the Club by Martina. 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.

Four Matching Yarns that will not be for sale anywhere
The yarn will be dyed especially for Strickmich! Club and Martinas pattern. New in 2019: The colorway will also be exclusive to the Club for all time, i. e. it will not be available from the dyers or from Strickmich! Shop. Only Club members will be able to order additional skeins in our Club Shop. The 2019 Club will deliver 485 g of yarn in total (minimum 100 g per shipment) if you choose the Single Yarn option. If you like your shawls and cowls very big, we recommend opting for “Double Yarn”: You will get twice the amount of yarn (970 g in total, minimum 200 g per shipment). Martina always includes instructions on how to make the club projects bigger. Please note: The double yarn shipments must not be shared and the patterns must not be photocopied or otherwise shared or passed on.

The supersoft and pleasant yarns we have chosen for the 2019 club contain fiber from Merino and Bluefaced Leicester Sheep, Silk, Cotton and Bamboo.

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!

Close to the Designer’s Heart
Martina says: “Strickmich! Club is the one project that is closest to my heart, and it has been for the past five years: I work with the most beautiful yarns that were created especially for me and my Club members by the most gifted dyers and yarn makers of the planet, and it enables me to provide knitters with a perfect combination of yarn, color, design and pattern. A dream come true! I am especially excited about our 2019 yarns, as they are extra luxurious and soft – I can’t wait to cast on the samples for the new club patterns! 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!”

Events & Videos
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. At the live cast-on event in Damsdorf, you will likely meet the dyer, who also brings more of her beautiful yarns for you to shop. Martina’s interviews with the dyers live on stage are also broadcast live via youtube on the day of the event.
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.

Here are examples from the current Strickmich! Club year:
