Spring knit

There's no denying it: Spring is here! Flowers are making meadows and gardens more colorful, the sun is gaining more and more strength, the days are getting longer - and! - the knitwear is slowly getting a little thinner again. Do you still need knitting ideas for the warmer season? We present suitable yarns and designs in this "Spring knitting" inspiration.

Makes you want spring: Sole by Pascuali.

Perhaps you feel the same way as we do: new seasons lead us in the team to take a different look at our color charts, stitch and yarn samples. Other colors come into focus, new materials migrate to the needles. As cozy and cozy as it is to make yourself comfortable on the sofa with new wool yarns and mohair yarns, it's also nice when the yarns become lighter and the projects in your lap become airier.

In the Maschenfein store you will find a large selection of different yarn qualities. Pure cotton yarns are joined by blends such as Sole by Pascuali, which consists of fine Pima cotton and fine cashmere. Or as we would say: the best of both worlds!

If you want to browse through our yarns first, it's best to use our filter function. There you can select the exact fibers that your yarn should contain. But beware: you may completely lose track of time with all the trying and looking. We've warned you! 😉

The full range of colors

Not only do we feel like spending more time in the fresh air at the moment, but the colors in our knitting projects can also be more colorful and bright again. In the store, you will definitely find a wide selection of colors in our spring and summer qualities, so there is something for every taste. Which kits have we created for each yarn? You can find them by clicking on "To all kits with this yarn" in the respective product.

The pure cotton yarn Petunia from Rauma, for example, provides you with a rich red as well as a restrained white - so how about Blouse No. 2 from My Favourite Things Knitwear? The hole pattern makes the design nice and airy, while the long sleeves prevent chills.

You will find different and rather delicate color nuances in Økologisk Pimabomuld from CaMaRose, which is also made of cotton. It also has a delicate sheen, which doesn't look artificial but is simply a great highlight. You can use it to knit the Knus Light shirt by Elsebeth Judith, for example. Short sleeves are definitely also possible in the spring months! If you get cold easily, simply grab your favorite cardigan for chilly moments during the day.

Re-Jeans
Recycled yarn: Re-jeans.

Pascuali's Re-Jeans are a little more tactile again. The yarn is made from recycled cotton fibers. The fibers are fabric remnants from jeans production, which are broken down and cleaned step by step down to the individual fibers. An interesting and sustainable manufacturing process! And with a needle size of 5 mm, a project such as the Ketan jacket by Pascuali for men is also feasible!

Meshy spring ideas

Of course, we also have lots of our own designs that are perfect for spring. Take a look:

You can browse through all the designs that we have created ourselves in our "Maschenfeine Kits" section. There are of course lots of cozy pieces, but also airy designs like the Hedda Tee. Our tip here: using Gima and Kosho from Ito, you not only have an exciting yarn combination on your needles, but also a shirt that doesn't lose the cozy factor despite the cotton.

You also have the choice of whether you want long or short sleeves for the Küselshirt. We have also created three different kits for you. For spring, we recommend Duo from Sandnes. If you're already leaning towards summer, go for Kinu and Washi from Ito.

If it's still too fresh for you - no problem! Designs such as the cloud cardigan or our freshly launched Bergalu poncho (now with snefnug, a dream!) will keep you warm even on cool spring days.

Fluffy spring knitwear

We wouldn't be knitters if spring knitwear wasn't allowed to be fluffy too. If you love the cloud cardi, you'll love it too:

You've probably already guessed it ... At Maschenfein we just can't get enough of multi-thread knitting. Using several yarns at the same time - whether the same or different qualities - simply creates a completely different character. It's also a great way to play with colors and get out of your comfort zone. If not in spring when the sun is shining brightly, then when?

Our favorites when it comes to fleece: Premia from Lamana, Sensai from Ito and Manada and Mohair Bliss from Pascuali. And for those who can't stand mohair: Midnatssol from CaMaRose and Organic Brushed Alpaca from KAOS Yarn are real game changers.

Stripes? We love them!

Stripes are also a classic for spring knitwear! They immediately conjure up a maritime atmosphere and make you want to take a trip to the harbor or the nearest lake. Anyone looking for sweaters in our kits will definitely discover striped designs. These can be classic block stripes like the Marseille Sweater from PetiteKnit or a subtle variation like the Robinia Light from Anne Ventzel.

Cloths go all year round

Maschenfein - Paul Scarf
You must have it: Paul Scarf from Maschenfein.

Of course, our maschenfein heart is big enough for many yarns. And projects. We also like to work on small in-between projects that go on and off the needles in no time at all. What am I talking about? Shawls, of course! It all started with them at Maschenfein and they have been our faithful companions ever since.

Our Paul Scarf, which we have dedicated to Paul Pascuali, the founder of the yarn manufacturer of the same name, for his birthday, is a shawl that you will never want to take off again. On the shawl, which you knit from cashmere 6/28, you will find the Frieda pattern, which is created by increases and decreases. A must for spring, I tell you!

Get outside!

And now? Grab your knitting and head to the terrace, balcony or park. Do you still need the right equipment? Of course, you can also find the right project bags at Maschenfein to take your spring knitting outside with you.

Knitting outside is fun!

Hello, dear Maschenfein team,

On March 9th there was a beautiful "Sommerknus" in the "Samstagskaffee" that I would have liked to knit. The pattern is available on Ravelry, but to buy it you have to have a paypal account. Is there a way to buy the pattern without becoming a paypal member first?

Best wishes for your needlework,
Gisela

Sophia

Dear Gisela, yes, that's right! For Ravelry you need Paypal or a credit card. Please send us an email to "support@maschenfein.de" - then we'll see how we can help you! Best regards, Sophia
