Karie says:

Named for an iconic Jimi Hendrix track, this design oozes urban chic.

The asymmetrical cowl is worked in garter-stitch with stripes and an easy slip-stitch pattern. Designed to showcase wildly variegated colourways of Malabrigo Twist on a background of semi-solid, the cowl has an urban, relaxed feel.

The cowl is worked flat in garter stitch and a slip stitch pattern with icord edging. Only one colour is worked at any given time with the variegated section lending a pop of colour and tying the look together.

Very cool! You can check out Crosstown Traffic on Ravelry, or browse our past Quickies here!


What are Malabrigo Quickies?

Quickies are small, fast projects which require only one or two skeins of yarn. Approximately every two weeks we’re teaming up with a talented independent designer to present an exciting new accessory (or other “small object”) pattern, showcasing one of our many yarns and colorways.
