I love those items that come to be in a yarn shoppe, where you see something gorgeous in your favorite color. You’re drawn to it. When you dig your fingers into it, it’s just magical, soft and dreamy. You pick up two or three skeins (depending on how much change you can scrape out of the bottom of your purse), because you know that you just can’t leave without it.
Especially, as I now know, if it’s Malabrigo, my absolute favorite and often impossible-to-find yarn. If you can’t find it, fear not – just pick your favorite soft, super bulky, handpainted or watercolor-type yarn. One caveat – the Malabrigo I used went from super fat to worsted weight every few inches in the skein, which is what makes the moss stitch so perfect for this piece. It almost looks alive when it knits up.
You will want a loose stitch for this scarf. If you are a loose knitter, awesome – if you knit on the tight side like me, consider going up a needle size from your swatch.
