Featured: Merino Worsted by Malabrigo + New Crochet pattern!

Malabrigo Merino Worsted Wool Yarn is the one that started my love affair with Malabrigo yarns. This super soft single ply works up in a versatile worsted gauge, making it great for a wide variety of different projects, from knitted sweaters to woven scarves and blankets. The soft twist in this yarn adds a layer of depth to its color, making even the tonal/solid shades pop with interest.

 

Regular Price: $11.95

Yarn: 100% Merino. Wash by hand in cold water and lay flat to dry. 210 yards/100 gram skein.

Gauge: 4-5 stitches per inch on US size 7-9 knitting needles; 2.75-2.5 stitches per inch on size I-9 to K-10.5 crochet hook.

Recommendations:

50,000 Spaceships - Crocheted Ponchette Pattern is a warm, modern way to get the most out of your favorite variegated Malabrigo Merino Worsted Wool Yarn colorway. Initially meant to be a crocheted version of my knitted Fortitude Ponchette Pattern, this piece quickly took on an identity of its own. A simple two-row repeat creates slipped stitch stripes that add a unique texture to this otherwise straightforward project. This ponchette is worked from the bottom up, with each flap worked back and forth separately before joining to work the rest in the round. For those of you who, like me, struggle to keep your crocheted edges neat and tidy, a quick row of single crochet is worked around each flap opening to smooth out any wobbles.

Another great accessory in Malabrigo Worsted is the Rippling Ringlet Infinity Cowl. This twisted infinity scarf can be worn loose or wrapped, and the fun texture of the fabric makes for a wonderfully squishy cowl.

Malabrigo Merino Worsted Wool Yarn is so soft and colorful, you can’t help but want to make a baby blanket out of it.

Think outside the box and choose a fun, bright color!  You’ll never get bored watching how it knits up.

Although the sample shown used Noro Tennen Yarn, Malabrigo Worsted is one of my top yarn choices for the Mannequin Pullover Sweater Pattern. This simple pattern is a flattering fit and fun knit, especially if using a variegated colorway.
