What a GREAT free pattern! I had no idea how I could use up just 1 skein of bulky, and this turned out perfect. Mine is Malabrigo Mecha in Piedras. Love the many colors in this colorway, but how it’s not overwhelming. The buttons were found at Joann’s and what a deal at $3.00. Come on cold weather! Fat chance in Florida.
This one is in Malabrigo Yarn Sock and is a gift from me to my aunt in Ireland for when she hosts us this summer. Unfortunately, ran out then ordered more and the colors were so different, decided to stop there and go ahead with the different dye lot to edge it with a substantial size border. I think it worked out well and looks like a planned design. 🙂
Just some pinches of cables in a delicious worsted weight wool. Just 2 skeins of Malabrigo Yarn Rios (dreamy) and this was a great project for flying and waiting around in airports. I forgot how fast worsted weight projects can be!
The Hugo Poncho is finished! This became a bit monotonous, as any large knit might. Thanks fully I was able to trek on since the yarn was so buttery soft and I just love this color so much. A feat of love. It’s a really great piece for my wardrobe. The winters aren’t much here so this may be plenty as a coat if we end up getting some cold weather. (fingers crossed)
One modification, I changed the pattern’s edge to a mock rib to match the turtleneck and I really like it this way.
What a nice way to use up some old stash! Bought too much Malabrigo in 2008 – ‘Bout time I get to it!
Found the Hugo Poncho, which is a great FREE pattern, and knew I had to make it. It’s the kind of project that makes for good TV knitting. I deviate to other things from time to time, but I hope to use up my <1300 yds in stash and complete it this season. It's perfect for a Florida winter garment.
The Fragile Heart shawl pattern by Boo Knits was a nice knit. Picot bind off – who knew? Took a long time to do, but worth it (seems you always hear that about the picot bind off). I worked on this during lunch breaks in my car at work and it was relaxing. Malabrigo lace – well, do I even have to say anything about it?
