Malabrigo Lace Yarn is a beautifully smooth, surprisingly strong single ply merino, kettle dyed to colorful perfection.  This yarn has excellent stitch definition, especially visible in the more solid shades. Solid or variegated, Lace is a great go-to yarn for knitters and weavers alike. See more details below…

The Serendipity Woven Scarf Pattern combines the silky sheen of JaggerSpun Zephyr Wool-Silk 2/18 Yarn with the beautiful variegation of Malabrigo Lace Yarn; plain weave shows off the colorful texture of this happy yarn pairing, with a few sections of a super cool Bird’s Eye pattern for added interest.

This time last year, we introduced the Pressure Drop Infinity Scarf Pattern as an easy one-skein lace weight project.  This infinity scarf is mostly simple Stockinette stitch in the round, with a few dropped stitch rounds at the beginning to add soft detail.

A long-time favorite pattern of mine is the Knitbot Featherweight Cardigan, which also happens to use Malabrigo Lace!  This tried and true pattern offers a few different variations, but it is also straightforward enough to allow you to make small tweaks and adjustments so you can create your dream cardigan.

Other suggestions:

There’s a Featherweight for kids!  The Knitbot Fledgling Featherweight Cardigan is just as adorable as its bigger sibling, only pint-sized.  You only need two skeins of Malabrigo Lace Yarn to make any size.

Another newer pattern that I’ve been wanting to make with Malabrigo Lace is the All Through the Night Wrap.  This ultra long wrap has a drifting eyelet pattern that I think would be just the right amount of subtle in one of the variegated shades. This project requires 3 skeins of Malabrigo Lace Yarn.
