I really can’t go near my favorite San Francisco yarn store, Imagiknit, without buying something. The struggle is usually to limit myself to just one yarn, if I don’t have a specific project in mind!
On my last trip I picked up this gorgeous Malabrigo yarn. I’ve been thinking about making the leap into chunky knitting lately (up until now, I think the largest needles I had ever used were a US 10) and this yarn was enough to entice me!
These pictures really don’t capture the depth and gorgeous color saturation with this yarn. It’s a gorgeous aquatic swirl of lime green with the deepest teal blue. All the colors in this line were beautiful and it was almost impossible to choose just one! Luckily, a quick look in my wallet usually makes it seem a lot more possible…
Since this was $22/90 yards I could only afford one skein and had to make sure I made something that I would definitely wear. The yarn was also so incredibly soft I wanted to make sure that whatever I made would be worn right against my skin.
So, without further ado, I reveal my Chunky Green Cowl.
I did a garter stitch on single point needles until I ran out of yarn. I put a single twist in it before I stitched it together to turn it into an infinity scarf.
Here’s the pattern: Enjoy!
Yarn: Malabrigo Rasta (100% Merino Wool)
Yardage: 90 yards
Needles: US 16, single point
Row 1: K 20.
Repeat until out of yarn.
Put in a single twist by joining the front side of one end to the back side of the other end to make an infinity scarf. Join using Kitchener stitch.
