Origami Shrug

File 2017-05-22, 6 10 33 PMBlowing in the summer wind it is for sure…

This Origami Shrug by Melissa Wehrle is so soft and light. It has been on my mind for way to long to knit this shrug up. Since I have the book now for  several years I thought it really is time to start knit it up too…

Can you tell I am Soooo loving it .File 2017-05-22, 6 07 27 PM





I used 5 skeins of my absolute favourite yarn called Louet MerLin Sport Weight a total of 1142 meters where knit up with needle  US 6 -4.0mm in the Aqua colour. So sad though this yarn is now discontinued ;-(((

If I would knit this Origami Shrug again I would be to use my KnitswissYarns in sport weight. Really think it would be stunning too.

Totally in love with this Origami Shrug.

When it came to sewing the back together I put the stitches on two separate needles and used the Kitchener this way…no one will see a seam!

(Now if you are going to knit this one up, look at the pattern errata there is a correction that is important to know! )

I Love My Amiga

What a fun knit this cardigan is…Amiga by Mags Kandis.

I have knit this one several times already and each time I fall in love with it again.  This pattern is great for so many yarns…here I have knit it with  Louet “KidLin Lace Weight” …I have equal fallen in love with this yarn …yes mohair and linen…what a blend.

The Linen gives this mohair the needed support in holding the stitch nice and together…I find the stitches are so much nicer then just mohair…more regural and as I would say not all over the place…smile.

Only 3 skeins and 4,5mm needles is all you need about 750 yarns or 700 meters. I went with a nice deep green called “Colorado Spruce…so cozy on a cooler evening sitting outside.

Es mach so richtig Spaß diese Strickjacke zu stricken...Amiga von Mags Kandis.

Ich habe dies schon mehrmals gestrickt und  jedes Mal verliebe ich mich erneut. Dieses Muster eignet sich hervorragend für so viele Garne und Wolle. Hier habe ich es mit Louet “KidLin Lace Weight ” gestrickt … ja Mohair und Leinen … was für eine schöne  Mischung.

Die Linen verleiht dem Mohair die erforderliche Unterstützung in der Masche sie hält schön zusammen ….

Nur 3 Stränge und 4,5 mm Nadeln brauchts Du dazu, so etwa 700 Meter in Wolle. Ich ging mit einem schönen tiefgrünen  “Colodaro Spruce” … So gemütlich und warm ist diese Jacke  wenn ich an einem  kühleren Abend draußen auf dem Sitzplatz  sitze….
