Malabrigo Quickies: Borealis by Rebecca Hill

It may be spring for the Uruguay crew, but up here in the Midwest the days are starting to hint at the chill to come- sure it’s still gorgeous during the day, but when the sun goes down, you know winter’s just around the corner. Brrr! I don’t know how I’d make it through the Michigan winters without my stash of Merino Worsted hats – like Borealis here! Highly recommended for all your chilly ear needs. Easy to whip up + a touch of pizzazz + super cute = the perfect gift (even if it’s for yourself).

Rebecca says:

Knit using 2 skeins of Malabrigo Worsted Merino, this hat makes great use of that beautiful skein of variegated yarn that you have been hoarding! Pair it with a coordinating solid yarn and you’ve got a beautiful, quickly knit hat! This pattern makes a great stash buster, as it can be easily be knit with partial skeins of at least 80 yards each.

For the entire month of October, this pattern is 40% off! Starting on November 1, price will go up to $5.00.


You can find Borealis on Ravelry here, or you can 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.
