Its hard to believe ten years (or 3650 knitting days) has passed since the first batches of kettle-dyed merino were hung up to dry at Malabrigo’s headquarters in Uruguay. What started out as a small family operation now produces seventeen yarn varieties and over three hundred unique colourways. To celebrate the exciting tenth anniversary, Malabrigo enlisted the creative talents of the world’s top knitwear designers to put together a collection of patterns focused primarily on their newly-developed signature colourway, Aniversario, which blends together the most popular colour palette as chosen by knitters worldwide.
Fourteen irresistible projects grace the pages of Malabrigo’s newly-released BOOK 11, featuring seven different yarn bases- Arroya, Sock, Rios, Mecha, Rasta, Mechita, and the most recent addition, Caracol. Look for a copy at your lys available now.
The fabulous highlights in Aniversario contrast beautifully against the richness of Pagoda in Rasta, just two of the mesmerizing choices available in Malabrigo’s super chunky spectrum used to knit this very cosy Vandam poncho style tunic.
