Sammal Cardigan : Detail Zopfmuster

Auf den Nadeln :: August ::

In Vorbereitung auf den Winter habe ich mir mal wieder vorgenommen, meine selbstgestrickte Garderobe etwas zu erweitern. Eine Strickjacke geht da immer. Die Wahl ist dabei auf die Strickjacke Sammal von Joji Locatelli gefallen. Die Anleitung hatte ich mir dem Gutscheincode von Jojis Passform-Workshop auf dem BerlinKnits Festival heruntergeladen. Bisher strickt es sich sehr kurzweilig Read More

I asked for a custom spindle with a glass bead that’s got some magenta or pink in there. Obviously the posed quite the challenge for Chris. Read More

The number of participants was astonishing and it seemed like everyone wanted Read More
