New: Sidelines Sweater

Sidelines is a casually oversized sweater that can be tailored to your preferences: With 8 body and sleeve circumferences, 6 lengths from cropped to tunic-length, and 3 neckline options to choose from, you can mix and match to create your dream sweater!

Because of the sideways construction, the Sidelines Sweater’s wide rib texture with slipped stitch detail turns into a textural horizontal stripe pattern that is combined with a wide hem, and cuffs in twisted ribbing and a folded neckline (optionally worked in contrasting colors).

The modular construction makes this an (almost) seamless project.

Last call for the #SosuMKAL2021 giveaway!

You have until tomorrow midnight (Sunday, July 11) to post you finished BRIOCHE + MYSTERY shawls to be in the draw to win 1 of 3 super cute project bags, filled with a skein of La Bien Aimee Merino Singles yarn in the Sosu colorway and Cocoknits stitch markers in two colors and lots of different sizes as well as a digital knitting pattern of your choice!

2 winners will be drawn randomly from Instagram and Facebook-Group posts with the tag #SosuMKAL2021revealed , and 1 from all posts in the FO thread in my Ravelry group.

And to make up for missing last week’s giveaway round, I’ll also give away 15 digital knitting patterns (5 each drawn from posts on Instagram, Facebook and Ravelry)!

The project bag is hand-sewn by me, (pattern by @indigobird_design) and has an orange chevron design with a water-repellent coated canvas exterior and a white canvas interior. It comes with embroidered handles (one with “sosu knits” and the other with the brioche abbreviations “brk1  sl1yo”) that fold down so you have easy access to your project. There are 2 exterior pockets, and a total of 8 interior pockets and two handy loops to attach stitch markers or other notions to.

EARTH, WIND & FIRE

ist ab sofort auch als digitales Strickmuster zum Download erhältlich!

Das Tuch wurde ursprünglich als Mystery-Design für den Garn-Adventskalenders 2020 von Frida Fuchs veröffentlicht.

Das große rechteckige Tuch ist geprägt von Zacken bzw. Pfeilen in unterschiedlichen Farben und Texturen: Kraus-Rechts, einfarbiges Patent (oder der Patent-Alternative im Rippenmuster mit Hebemaschen), Kraus-Streifen und kleine Pünktchen. Durch die beinahe zufällig wirkende Farbanordnung entsteht ein lebendiges und dennoch harmonisches Gesamtbild, das durch den Glatt-Rechts Hintergrund im Flauschgarn und eine Umrandung in Kraus-Rechts mit I-Cord-Kante abgerundet wird.

Das Tuch wird in vier Teilen gestrickt: Die drei rechteckigen Streifen, die den Hauptteil des Tuches bilden, werden mit I-Cord-Nähten zusammengestrickt, und am Ende mit einem angestrickten Rand umrahmt.

Da das Tuch ursprünglich für einen Adventskalender designed wurde, ist es so entwickelt, dass es mit insgesamt 21 Mini-Strängen in 7 Farben (6 Kontrastfarben, 1 Hauptfarbe) und 1 ganzen Strang der flauschigen Hauptfarbe (Hintergrund) gestrickt werden kann. Alternativ kann auch je ein ganzes Knäuel pro Farbe oder viele verschiedene Farbreste verwendet werden. Statt dem flauschigen Lace-Garn in Alpaka/Seide kann ein Garn in Stärke „Fingering“ (wie Kontrastfarben) verstrickt werden.

Das Strickmuster gibt es in drei Formaten:

* In der Vollversion ist jeder Abschnitt, jede Reihe, jede Masche ausgeschrieben (formattiert fürs Drucken order Ansehen auf einem Laptop order Desktop Computer)
* In der Kurzversion werden die fünf Mustersätze referenziert, die am Beginn angegeben sind (formattiert fürs Drucken order Ansehen auf einem Laptop order Desktop Computer)
* Die Mobile-Version ist optimiert für Smart-Phone und Tablet, kann aber auch bei Sehschwäche hilfreich sein (große Schrift); dies ist auch die Vollversion (damit nicht herum gescrollt werden muss)

#EarthWindFireShawl #sosuknits #fridafuchs
EARTH, WIND & FIRE SHAWL

is now available as a digital pattern download!
➡️ Link in bio!

This stunning rectangular wrap/shawl was originally published as the mystery design accompanying the Frida Fuchs yarn advent calendar 2020.

The design features an arrow pattern in different textures: garter stitch, one-color brioche (or the alternative slipped-stitch ribbing), garter stripes, and cute little dots. The random-seaming color sequence creates a colorful but cohesive overall effect that is supported by the fluffy stockinette background and garter stitch border with an i-cord edge.

The three original color combinations call to mind the elemental forces of Earth, Wind, and Fire; the fourth version, called Elements (but nicknamed Unicorn), combines colors from the three elements.

The shawl is knit in four parts: The three rectangular strips that make up the main part are later connected with knitted i-cord seams and surrounded by a border for a neat and finished look.

As the shawl was originally designed for a yarn advent calendar, it was designed to be knit with 21 mini skeins in fingering weight yarn and 1 full skein of the main color in a fluffy Alpaca/Silk blend. Feel free to use either a full skein instead of the 3 mini skeins per contrasting color or any number of colors to use up leftovers. The Lace weight main color can be substituted with a Fingering weight yarn without any changes to the pattern.

The pattern comes in three formats:

* The full version has every section, row, and stitch fully written out (formatted for printing or viewing on a laptop or desktop computer)
* The short version is a more condensed format that references the five stitch patterns (formatted for printing or viewing on a laptop or desktop computer)
* The mobile version is optimized for viewing on a mobile device (tablet/smartphone) but also for vision-impaired knitters (large print); this is also the full version (no scrolling around necessary)

Sorry for my radio silence!

I‘ve been so very much online during the MKAL, glued to my phone to respond to all messages and questions as timely as I could, posting and sharing and trying to make this as fun and friction free an experience for all participants as possible. Please don’t think that I’m complaining because I very much enjoyed it all, and I’m so very grateful for all the support and lovely messages I received. 

But it took a toll. And I just ran out of steam. And so much time spent in front of a screen, paired with the current hot/cold weather just did me in just when I thought I had rested up and rewarded me with a nice migraine.

I‘m trying to be kind to myself and take it slow, but there is just so much to do (and I‘m terrible at taking a break)!

My head is a little better today, so I’m popping in to say sorry for missing Friday‘s MKAL giveaway. I‘ve saved all prizes and will give them away in the final grand giveaway. Which should be this Friday, but since I‘m still not at full steam, will have to wait until Sunday.
Which just gives you two more days to post your finished BRIOCHE + MYSTERY shawls with the tag #SosuMKAL2021revealed to be in the draw to win patterns! yarn! project bags!and cute notions! 🥳

Thanks for understanding!

Epic bind-off of my first #sosumkal2021 which I‘ll finish second ☀️ I love how different they are, it’s all about colour placement 🖤 Pattern is by sosuknits 🧶 by lolabeanyarnco from stephen.and.penelope 🖤
Here is my newly finished #briochetiles shawl by sosuknits on display idas_house. It was a great pattern to work on and I’m so happy with the finished shawl. I will have some kits for this in my Etsy shop and at Ida’s House in the yarns shown, and some other options.  I hope you will want to make one as much as I did.

Alucinante el testknit del chal que sosuknits ha diseñado y sacará pronto a la venta en #ravelry.
.
Me ha costado unos 20 días tejerlo,es un chal para tejedores avanzados y que sepan brioche,pero es súper entretenido y divertido,no tiene peros,porque además tiene versión con gráficos.
.
Os animo mucho a seguir a Susanne,es una diseñadora con muchísimo talento!

For the first time I started a second project during a MKAL 🌟 This is the sosuknits #sosumkal2021 and I finally got to use some lovely garnstories skeins 🖤 I had them for a while and I think this pattern fits perfectly to the yarn!  In some places C1 and C2 and also C3 and C4 are very similar and I love it! 👌🏻 Also, this is going to be huge! #shlanket
