I love Malabrigo, and after knitting Ryan’s Malabrigo Koolhaas and Koolhaas mitts, I had to have something for myself. I saw a beautiful stitch pattern on a scarf at the Gourmet Yarn Co, and they were kind enough to give me the pattern. The stitch is called star stitch, and in a lightweight yarn like the one used at GYC, it really does look like a star. I wanted to see how it knit up in a heavier yarn, and Malabrigo was just the ticket. I actually think the repeats look more like a flower in the heavier yarn, and I just love how the color variations look with the stitch pattern.
I used Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Emerald. (I think this may be my favorite colorway!) The scarf was relatively simple, although I recommend knitting loosely if you don’t want to really hate the p3tog’s in the star stitch.
