The gorgeous, hand-dyed colorways! The soft hand of Merino wool! Malabrigo Rios has earned a spot in our list of favorite yarns. The beginning of fall is a perfect time to start knitting sweaters, mitts & hats. Some knitworthy sweater inspiration is On the Grass by Joji Locatelli.
Simple, easy to follow & relatively quick to knit, this very comfortable pullover is worked seamlessly, in the round, from the top down. The finishing is minimal, so you will be out & about in your knit in no time!
Looking for a quick accessory? The Chelsea Market mitts by Christina Behnke are great for running errands when you need fingers free or make a great gift for back to school teens. The mitts use just 1 skein of Malabrigo Rios & size US 6 double point needles.
Lucia by Cheryl Murray is a modern, beautifully textured hat that can be knit in one or two evenings. Also needing just 1 skein of Malabrigo Rios, this hat is fun & quick on size US 8, 16” circular & double point needles.
