Malabrigo – Arroyo

I am always exited about Malabrigo Yarns.

I love the surprise I get when I knit up a skein of this lovely soft merino….looking at a skein, you never quite know how its going to look, don’t you? Even the seemingly oddest combinations look great. Once knit up into a hat or a cowl….

This is the first time we are stocking Arroyo. And it looks to become a regular…I love Sport/5-ply yarns. Not too heavy, but not as dauntingly fine as fingering. Just perfect for garments that still need some body and warmth and it does not nearly take as long to knit up…

Sooo, I did some digging around the Ravelry maze for you (’cause it can half a day alone to go through all the wonderful patterns on Ravelry without getting any knitting done…), and I have some ideas and inspiration to get you dreaming about your next project….

Cria – by Ysolda Teage

I just love this simple cardigan for so many reasons: It is flattering, simple yet with lovely details. A variety of yarns can be used with different effect. Pashmina for luxury, Arroyo or a simple Cascade Sport. And it fits a wide range of body types.

Elowen Shawl – by Judy Marples

If you want to show of the beauty of your artisan yarn, this is a wonderful shawl! A simple structure allows for the colour variations to shine, whilst being still interesting to knit. There are some great shawls knit up with Arroyo.

Just Yer Basic Sport Sock

For an extra cushy and warm sock….why not!

Man Cowl (or Anyone)

Not that you are limited to a man…this is a great all-round cowl to show off your beautiful skein.

Lila (C)loud

Something so lovely for a little girl…..

Stacked Eyelet Cowl

A simple cowl. Lovely…


How about a sweater to show off a great colour. Simple enough to knit, but stylish and intriguing at the same time….


Elisabeth – for kids

In a pattern popularity contest, you can’t go past Elisabeth for girls….a beautiful pattern with lots of interesting detail.

Riverside Cowl

Do we really need another cowl? Oh, but this is a perfect match…

Gathering Stripes – for kids

All of Veera’s patterns are stunning, and this lightweight jumper for kids is no exception. And it comes in grown-up sizes too.

A simple and elegant cardi.


A beanie to fit every head!

Fresco Simply Slouchy Hat


How is that?

There are so many more pattern….and one gets heart palpitations and anxiety attacks just trying to choose….at least that’s how it feels…I want to knit up so many patterns but just know that I just haven’t got enough time in the day to do it. So I am counting on you to share some of your projects with me….
