Today’s featured patterns from Malabrigo Book 6: In Cabo Polonio are Faro and Rancho!

Faro, designed by Veera Välimäki, is a cabled swing cardigan in cozy Twist yarn, in Manzanilla Olive and Lettuce (a curious-sounding salad, but hey, it looks good!) The top half of the body is worked first, from the top down, and the horizontal cabled swing panel is worked side to side and attached as you go. (Unfortunately I don’t have any snapshots of this one- they came out blurry! Oops!)

I had fun experimenting with this one to find the best ways to wear it…and apparently making silly faces.
