MFPP: Malabrigo Halloween by Stacey Trock

My very favorite holiday is nigh- as far as I’m concerned, Halloween starts on October 1st, and what better way to kick off the festivities than this charming collection by Stacey Trock? If you get those hook’s a-flyin’ you’ve still got time to make yourself a costume!

Stacey says:

I hope you enjoy this fun collection of Halloweeen-themed patterns in one of the yummiest yarns around… Malabrigo!¬†This book contains a cowl, legwarmers, a shawl and hat: items that, in my opinion, are crucial for a successful autumn. Oh, yeah, and a monster pillow… just because I thought it was fun!¬†I‚Äôm pretty sure you‚Äôll love these patterns so much, that you‚Äôll sneak them into your life all year long!

See it Knit – Frank Ochre

Frank Ochre in Malabrigo Chunky

Frankfurter is a kind of sausage made in Frankfurt, Germany. Here in Uruguay we call hot dogs “Frankfurters” or “panchos”.

A good frankfurter is usually guarded by a nice, spicy, golden-yellow mustard.

Reminiscing these two things together, the name for this beautiful ochre colourway came to exist, Frank Ochre.

It comes in Malabrigo Yarn Worsted, Malabrigo Yarn Chunky, and Malabrigo Yarn Lace.
