My version, knitted in Malabrigo Sock, the shade is Aguas. Malabrigo Sock is a lightweight, relatively durable merino wool superwash yarn. This sweater has been loved, and worn, and repaired. It’s a sweet little thing; I wouldn’t mind having another.
The pattern was written by Cecily Glowik MacDonald, link here.
Another handmade item I finished a while ago but haven’t posted: my sixth pair of these mitts. I think? I’ve done at least six, that’s for sure.
I really like this pattern. It’s fun and quick and works nicely with various weights of yarn. I’ve done four pairs in sport weight, one in dk, and one in worsted. I gave a few away, and the others are too well-loved to photograph. Already these have been worn quite a bit.
If you’re looking to crochet a gift for someone, these are a good candidate. Need to finish up a partial skein of fancy yarn? Water Lily Mitts.
I finished knitting these mitts just before the end of the year. They’re the Spring Bloom Mitts designed by Rachel Atkinson for Loop London. It’s a free pattern, if you want to try: link
They didn’t take long to make. Mitts are are always good for quick gratification.
The yarn is Malabrigo Rios in Azul Profundo. I had it left over from another project. These took less than a skein. Rios is one of those nice, soft wools that feels almost cottony. It reminds me of Madelinetosh Tosh DK. I’d say the weight is between Tosh DK and Vintage.
