Its time to reveal whats coming in this quarters Malabrigo Partner Crate.
First, lets talk about the yarn. We love this vibrant, beautiful, exciting colorway from Malabrigo. Anniversario is a rainbow yarn that doesnt feel too bright or overwhelming: youll find yellow, green, purple, pink, teal, blue and everything in between within, but they all harmonize so beautifully in the finished fabric that its truly a great example of the dyeing artistry of this brand. On deliciously soft, 100% Superwash Merino Mechita, two skeins gives you 840 yards of fingering weight to play with.
Each skein is unique, so we recommend either embracing the drastic change from skein to skein within your project (totally possible with this months patterns), or alternate your skeins every row or round to blend them together.
The knitting pattern this month was designed especially for this colorway and comes from another project I worked with Malabrigo on, Malabrigo Heritage. Were featuring Celebracion, a cowl designed by Sabine Engel:
The crochet pattern, Excitations, was designed byAime Hansen! I asked Aimee what she would do with this beautiful, colorful yarn and this exquisite wrap is the best result we could have asked for. Truly a WOW statement piece that is crocheted on the bias:
The extra in this months partner crate is one of three colors of a fabulous, iridescent-metallic notions case. Youll either get silver, hot pink, or electric blue:
We love these types of pouches for holding my notions and needles (especially double points) on the go, and they fit nicely inside larger project bags or drawstring bags to keep everything organized.
Also, we have a very cool bonus for members from Malabrigo–15% off the Malabrigo Heritage e-book with a special code that is included on the download page for members (theres a postcard in your box with this URL.)
This month we had a little issue with printing and werent able to get the yarn and samples all in the same place to be photographed before the books had to be turned in, so hopefully this gift makes up for not having a physical book in this crate (something we typically include).
