This was an on-the-go project made on my New York trip, mostly on the plane. The idea was brewed when I fell in love with this Malabrigo Rios wool at Beehive Wool Shop (heaven) which comes in the most beautiful colour palette. After deliberating for ever, I chose out a colour called “plomo” which is a greyish purple wool. It’s a 100% merino worsted 10 ply, and it is heavenly. I had never knitwith Malabrigo, but there’s a first time for everything and this won’t be the last.
I had been looking for a wool for the Yellow Brick Cold Cowl pattern, so this seemed perfect. The pattern is knit back and forth, 1/2 in garter stitch, 1/2 in basketweave, then seamed together at the ends. I was really happy with the wool for this project, the colour variations showed up prominently in the pattern, especially in the basketweave. After blocking the scarf, I can wrap it three times around my neck… am so happy with it!
