Malabrigo Quickie Todi Fingerless Mitts and Headband

This entry was posted on 8th May, 2018 by Barbara .

This month's Quickie comes from designer Asimina Saranti who took one skein of Rastita in Solis and crafted two fast and fun patterns. Meet the Todi Mittens

and Todi Headband.

Both pieces feature a wonderful mixture of textures which play beautifully with the range of blues found in Solis. The main texture has so much movement that it will also work beautifully with any of our more colorful colorways.

When asked about her inspiration for this pattern she had the following to say.

I absolutely love variegated yarns and working with color. But combining sudden color changes and stitch patterns can sometimes be a challenge. For this design I decided to focus on texture and form, in a way that the stitches would blend in the colors. With strong lines and a change in the direction of knitting this blend is achieved quite effortlessly. And the slightly felted structure of Rastita is just what's needed to let all these features shine.

Add in the fact that you can work both patterns with only one skein of Rastita and you have a recipe for a ton of knitting fun. The only question left to answer is what color will you knit these in?
