Super Bulky Socks
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.
Twistin’ The Night Away
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!
Easy Loose Cabled Cowl
Our loose cabled cowl is a last minute knits that work up FAST! We made ours light and airy on 15mm/US19 needles and two skeins of Malabrigo Rasta, but you can also you one Cascade Magnum, Cascade Spuntaneous, or three Estelle Big Alpaca Bulky.
Malabrigo Rasta: 2 skeins
Cascade Magnum: 1 skein
Cascade Spuntaneous: 1 skein
Estelle Big Alpaca Bulky: 3 skeins
Bulky Mobius Cowl
Our Bulky Mobius Cowl is a great little last minute gift. It works up fast on 10mm/US15 needles and the mobius technique makes it entertaining. The yarn, Malabrigo Rasta, is stunning: it’s buttery soft and I’ve never seen a skein that didn’t knit up like a Monet painting. Plus, it’s a one-skein project!
Really Quick Mitts
I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to feel the holiday pressure – only two weeks away! Don’t worry, it’s doable, you just need to shift your focus to projects that work up fast with thick yarns. We designed the Really Quick Mitts a few years ago for just this purpose, and they’re still going strong!

Mega Rib Hat
Fast, simple, thick, super soft, cozy – this project is holiday GOLD! One skein of Malabrigo Rasta is more than enough to make a hat (if you’re making a few hats hold on to your leftovers and you can make another hat, pair of mitts, wristlets or a cowl out of them). If hand dyed aesthetic isn’t your style try buttery soft Cascade Spuntaneous, it’s very similar to Rasta.
Malabrigo Rasta: 1 skein (hand dyed 100% merino wool)
Cascade Spuntaneous: 1 skein (100% merino wool)
