Malabrigo Quarterly Club

Our Malabrigo Quarterly Club for May features a never-before-seen combination of the colorway Light of Love on the Finito base. Light of Love is not usually dyed on this base so this is an exclusive yarn just for KnitCrate members. Finito is a fingering weight 100% Merino Wool (non-superwash) yarn. Each skein has 200 yards (183 meters), and your Malabrigo crate will include three skeins for a total of 600 yards (549 meters) of luxurious yarn.

Colorway: Light of Love

This sassy and saturated pink from Malabrigo has flares of warm and cool pinks throughout. 

The Extra

We’ve had to make a change to the planned extra for your May Malabrigo Partner Club crate that we’re notifying members of on May 11, 2022. Due to supply chain issues, the vendor is not able to get us the item we had ordered. With this short of notice, coordinating a different extra would create a shipping delay for our crates. Instead, we are sending members 2 fun extras that we've recently featured with our other crates. 

This quarter, we’re including two notions no maker can live without. This large-eyed acrylic needle from Katrinkles is short in length and perfect for weaving in ends. Our team feels no project bag is complete without a tape measure, and we’re including one for you in this quarter’s club crate.

The Patterns

Knit Pattern

The Light of Love Cowl by Julee Mackessy / Naluknits mimics the look of a shawl with the ease of a cowl. Worked as a triangular shawl and then joined in the round, it uses simple lace to achieve a delicate effect that calls to mind ripples on the water. Pull it over your shoulders for a stylish and cozy look.

The Lift & Texture set by Aimée Hansen / Yarngerie is inspired by the texture of watercolor paintings.
