Amy Micallef and malabrigo

We want to share with you the work of Amy Micallef, an excellent designer that has worked with malabrigo in several of her prettiest designs.

In the Winter 2014/15 edition of Vogue Knitting you can see the Shawl-Collar Cardigan, a beautiful sweater from Broadway play “Of Mice and Men”, with James Franco and Chris O’Dowd, made with malabrigo Sock in Ochre color.

Vogue Knitting said about her design:

“Amy Micallef captures timeless style in her shawl-collar cardigan, crafting it with impeccable attention to detail. She work the cable rib collar along with the front, transposing the right and wrong-side pattern stitches so that the right side shows where it folds over at the yoke. The wide cabled rib border nips the waist and cuffs and harmonize with the charming allover pattern of eyelet blocks. Malabrigo yarn Sock offers a bit superwash luxury”

Also Amy is the author of Pinebankthe cardigan featured on the cover of the our newest Malabrigo book 8, In Central Park.

In this cardigan the perfect combination of bright colors, tiget lily, flúo, very berry and cadmium, enhance the blanced tones of Azules yarn. The garment enchant us for great details like the ends of the sleeves, or the internal colors finished.

Update: Cabo Polonio (and Uruguay overall) has been featured in Lonely Planet’s Best Value Destinations for 2015! We certainly agree 🙂

The pattern is Redfern Cardigan made with Malabrigo Yarn Rios, superwash merino, Glazed Carrot, this´s a special color, that reminds us of a majestic sunset on a warm fall afternoon.

Ramona says about her design: 
“The reversible herringbone pattern creates a versatile collar in the Redfern Cardigan. Wear it buttoned up, with the collar styled as a cowl-neck, or unbuttoned, with the collar folding down over the shoulders. Whichever way it’s worn, the stylish doubled buttons on the collar show.”
