Gifts for knitters

To make others happy with self-knitted gifts is undoubtedly nice. But of course we knitters are also happy about smaller and larger gifts. Because for the most beautiful hobby in the world, you need not only pattern and yarn, but also some accessories. This inspiration is therefore all about you and your wishes! Have fun browsing!

Very basic: knitting needles

One of our needle favorites is the set from Chiaogoo.

One thing is clear: knitting without needles? It (almost) never works. And that's why they're right at the top of our wish list. Needle sets are especially popular for Christmas or birthdays. Our favorite at Maschenfein is the needle set from Chiaogoo, which is available with bamboo or metal needles. Note the different threads here - depending on which needle size is used.

In addition to Chiaogoo, we also stock needles from other manufacturers, including Lykke and KnitPro. These two systems are compatible with each other. But also take a look at the needles from Lantern Moon (we love the black ebony!) or Seeknit.

By the way: We also stock needle sets from almost all manufacturers - individually and as a set. So if you are looking in this area, you will also find what you are looking for at Maschenfein. Crochet hooks round off our range - because even when it comes to knitting, it's okay to think outside the box!

If you want to store your knitting needles nicely, you will of course also find what you are looking for at Maschenfein. Needle bags from Minuk, PetiteKnit or Lantern Moon ensure that everything always stays nicely in place.

What applies to knitting needles, of course, also applies to the corresponding cases: They simply look particularly good in practical project bags. We also have a whole lot of them in the Maschenfein store.

Our handmade project bag from Minuk, for example, is a real classic. You can find it in two different sizes - and be sure to check out the even larger bucket bag! In addition to the small Hamburg label, we also stock other manufacturers, such as muud from Denmark and the US company Twig & Horn.

Our range is complemented by DIY kits - so it's not just the project that ultimately involves a lot of love and handiwork. For example, if you like embroidery or would like to give it a try, you should grab a project bag with an embroidery kit from PetiteKnit. In addition to thread and a heat-soluble marking pen, the kit also contains ideas for possible motifs. And if you love the Danish style but don't like embroidering - no problem! We now have an extensive range of project and accessory bags, all of which also come from PetiteKnit collections.

Fine project and accessories bags by Franziska Klee

We have a great cooperation with the Leipzig fair fashion label Franziska Klee.

One collaboration that continues to give us great pleasure is our cooperation with the Leipzig-based fair fashion label Franziska Klee. In exclusive sales slots, we offer the project bag Mona, needle bags Mara and Mira as well as the cases Mila, Maja and Maki. Only then do Franzi and her team make the bags by hand from their high-quality natural leather and then send them to you.
Always available without a sales slot are the leather straps for knitted bags, hangers for Santa stockings and co. as well as key rings.

The leather itself comes from farms in southern Germany and the Alpine region and has been
has been tanned on a vegetable basis. To ensure the high quality, it is subject to strict ethical and environmental requirements and at the same time is subjected to constant controls. The result is a natural hide that is chrome-free and allergy-friendly. You'll know the difference from industrial leather as soon as you smell and feel it.

Wrap, wash & stretch

We say it again and again: there is so much more to knitting than the actual work on the knitted piece. Starting with the skein, which you have to wind into a ball, through to the final washing and stretching of the knitted piece. This is often the only way for the shape and pattern to develop their true effect.

You can find the necessary accessories for all these steps at Maschenfein: reels from Chiaogoo, wonderfully fragrant detergent from kaëll, tension wires from Knit Pro and so much more. For example, we are big fans of brushes to gently remove lint from our favorite knits. Or we spread little cedar hearts between our treasures - so moths don't stand a chance!

Little things gladden the knitting heart

Every knitter needs a tape measure.

Maschenfein

If you want to make knitters happy, sometimes you don't even need to look at the really big accessories. On the contrary, small things also make us very happy. And hardly any knitter can do without a measuring tape, needle and gauge, stitch markers and scissors.

At Maschenfein you will find a large selection of accessories. It comes from manufacturers such as Tulip, Twig & Horn, Cohana, Merchant & Mills and Cocoknits. We have identified a few favorites among our team: if it's up to us, the stitch stoppers and the sewing needle set from Cocoknits are just as essential as a plentiful supply of stitch markers. And if we had to name one product without which hardly any project would cross the needles, it would be: Stitch holders!

In addition to such practical little things, we have lost our hearts to pins and other pretty little things that decorate our project bags and help us in many an emergency: Crochet hooks as key rings - it doesn't get much more practical than that!

Notebooks are also very useful for noting down work progress or keeping a record of favorite yarns. As you can see, in addition to wool and needles, there is so much more you can give a knitter.

Literature for the most beautiful hobby in the world

There's no question about it: we naturally feel best when we're holding our needles in our hands. But we also need inspiration. You can find it here at Maschenfein, of course, but also in lots of lovingly designed books. Reference books are also a very valuable investment. For example, our handy knitting encyclopedia "Strickwissen to go" is a great gift. Or how about our basic book "Meine große Strickschule"?

Ready to wear, coupons and wish lists

Sometimes things have to happen quickly. And uncomplicated. We know that only too well! And then it can also be something knitted, which is not hopped from the own needles. The pulse warmers from ITO, for example, are a wonderful everyday companion, just like the feather-light Sensai scarf.

When Christmas and birthday suddenly come around the corner much faster than expected or the choice is simply difficult: With our vouchers you really never go wrong. And here's a tip for all knitters themselves: Use the wish list function for the individual products. This way you can fill lists in your customer account and also share them with others if needed 😉

The pulse warmers from ITO are available in many different colors.
