Crochet and knitting patterns

Sosu’s “Follow the Rainbow”-shawl

This rainbow shawl is dedicated to all queer knitters everywhere. Proceeds from this knitting pattern, which is available in English and German, support the LGBTIQ+ community and organizations through queerMaschen’s annual YarnPride fundraiser events. “Follow the Rainbow” is a triangular shawl knitted in stockinette stitch with contrasting stripes in short rows in garter stitch, top down.

An i-cord surrounds the entire shawl – from the cast-on to the edges to the bind-off – ensuring a clean finish and beautiful edges.

(This pattern is the revised version of the “New Beginnings shawl” reissued in an expanded rainbow version in support of the YarnPride fundraiser.)

P.S.: You also get the pattern as a goodie with every YarnPride Bag!

Dirk’s Rainbow Gnome

The cute amigurumi are quick to knit, make an excellent gift for your loved ones and are sure to be the eye-catcher at every Pride parade.

Matzinger / Tzingerl

Stay hydrated! Summer is just around the corner and we want to go to the outdoor pool or an open-air party with as little luggage as possible. So that we can put on a fresh performance for as long as possible, we absolutely need something to drink! So put the bottle in the stylish and practical carrier and let’s go!
