Emma says:

Show off your Brooklyn pride and warm your hands with the Brooklyn Bridge Mitts, no matter what ‘hood you call home! These mitts feature traveling cables that mimic the arches of the Brooklyn Bridge, set on a reverse stockinette stitch background that transitions to stockinette after the cables are completed. A thumb gusset provides a comfortable fit and you can opt for individual finger holes or a completely fingerless treatment. With two lengths and two sizes to choose from, plus cute buttoned cuffs, you’ll be whipping up a perfect-for-you pair of mitts in no time! (More on Emma’s blog)

Super lovely- the long ones are downright sophisticated! You can find the Brooklyn Bridge Mitts on Ravelry here, or browse through our past Quickies here. Great work, Emma!!

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.

    I would choose 863 zarzamora because it reminds me of heathery walks in spring/summer and blackberry picking in late summer/autumn.

  2. Kim Harris

    It’s hard to choose as I LOVE them ALL!! But for this particular pattern I would choose Azules! : ) It’s beautiful!

  3. Annette

    If I win I’d love to have blackberry! I can just see a winter sweater made out of it. Hoping!! And Dreaming!!!

    I would pick the light purple one . I can’t remember the name. But that’s the color family I like

    I love the puff stitch pullover and put a marker in the magazine page so I can make it for myself (for a change). Since I would need 11 skeins and I am on a fixed income I have to save so I can order the beautiful Malabrigo Yarn I want. I live in FL so I need colors that are light enough even in winter and I love the Lilita, it is so rich looking and the Evening Violet – both equally gorgeous!

    I have been looking at this pattern and wanting to make it for the fall. I love purple and I think this pattern would be beautiful in Wisteria. That’s the color I would love to have if I win. 🙂

    Wow! I can’t believe how long it took me to go over all those colors and make a decision. In the end, I have to go with the 425 Madre Perla because it looks so light and lovely. I think it would be a lovely neutral shade for day or evening, that would also show off the texture of the sweater. and I would love to see this sweater in that color.

    madre perla hands down! its grabs your eye and would make any items made from it look stunning

    Oh, choices, too many choices! I’d say Indiecita, but then I’d have to not say Blackberry or any of a number of yummy colors! Too cruel! But then decision making with such boundy is always difficult. Then once I have the yarn , of whatever color, the next decision: what to make?
