I like simple, loose cables like this cowl; they create great texture and interest without too much effort.
This pattern is one of our oldies but goodies, but sometimes you just need something fast and simple (actually, it’s one of the most popular freebies on our website). One skein of Malabrigo Rasta makes a pair of glorious mittens!
Just in case you left it to the last minute, here’s a pattern for a super bulky Pussy-Cat Hat. Wear your hat to a Women’s March this weekend, or just as a political statement around town. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
One skein of a super bulky weight yarn like Cascade Lana Grande or Malabrigo Rasta should do the trick, or try holding two strands of a bulky weight yarn together (like Berroco Vintage Chunky, Malabrigo Mecha, Diamond Baby Alpaca Sport).
Great one skein last minute gift! A client came in last week wearing a very simple toque (that’s Canadian for a winter hat) made with Malabrigo Rasta and I immediately thought “I’ve got to find a pattern for my other clients for that!”. This hat is styled with the brim turned up, but if you wear it turned down it becomes a perfect slouchy style hat. A bit Thank You to Halan for the inspiration!
All the following yarn are suitable and ON SALE until January 8!
Super-Bulky Socks are another last minute one-skein wonder. They’re fast, impressive, and oh so cozy! they only use one skein of buttery soft and beautifully dyed Malabrigo Rasta, or get a second skein to make them taller slouch socks.
Need to make something for the non-hat wearer in in your life? Banish hat-hair with this quick & easy headband! It’s a quick & easy knit, and small enough to work as a secret-santa gift. One skein of Malabrigo Rasta or Cascade Spuntaneous makes at least two headbands – one for you and one for them? Headband Twinsies!
Both of these yarns are made from buttery soft, super-bulky merino wool – perfect for a headband!
