It's that wonderful time of year known as Malabrigo March once again! You can read more about the festivities here, but basically I just wanted to let you know that all my Malabrigo patterns are 20% on Ravelry with the code "youvegotmal" (yeah I went there.)
The full list of participating patterns is here in my group but I thought I'd feature a few of my faves:
A Most Bespeckled Hat
A classic cutie, popular with those looking for low-stress colorwork and polkadot fans
My personal favorite for winter because of the wide, double-layered brim - so cozy!
Chevzam & Zam Hat
Easy and fun colorwork- these have been real crowd favorites!
An oldie but a goodie- a simple sock yarn shawl from the first Go Go Malabrigo collection.
Quirky, pom-pom heavy, and oddly a little...sultry? Nah, it's probably just the matching lipstick and pompom. (A trend which is almost certainly in for 2014, right?)
You're a star!! Or else, you're the band that sang the Pete & Pete theme song.
Scallops are sweet & trendy, and look even better with gradient colors. Varia's sister Pétoncle is a lot of fun too! Both are great for beginning colorwork-ers, since you only have to strand on a few rows.
There are many, many more eligible patterns than this (I, er, use Mal a LOT, especially the Worsted) but there's a smattering for ya!
In all honesty, Malabrigo is one of my very favorite yarn brands (and I'm not just saying that 'cause I work for them part time- it's the other way around!) and I'm glad to have a chance to parade my Mal knits around and spread the obsession. I urge you to check out the festivities in the Malabrigo Junkies group and, if you haven't already, get your hands on some Mal so you can fall in love too!
