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.

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.
