Malabrigo Quickie Bough Shawl by Tori Gurbisz

This entry was posted on 28th January, 2019 by Barbara .

We are kicking off 2019 with a super fast and fun knit in Rasta! Lachesis and Co. designer Tori Gurbisz chose to highlight one of the new TriBeCa colors in this bold lace shawl. 

The Bough Shawl looks awesome in Whole Grain but there is a whole palate of Rasta to choose from and any of the colors would look great. You'll need a US size 17 (12.75 mm) circular needle for all of these chunky stitches and you will not believe how quickly the stitches will fly.

We asked Tori to share a bit about the shawl, here's what she had to say!

Bough is an elongated triangle shawl, with increases worked at the edges on both sides to form the shape. The large stitches created by Rasta are a perfect match for the eyelets and directional decreases. In this great neutral color, I find the stitch pattern reminds me of tree branches longing for spring.
This shawl is worked from the top down, beginning with a garter tab. Both written and charted instructions are included.
Rasta is perfect for quick knits and you will be perfectly snuggly in this beautiful shawl.

See you next month !


We really enjoy showcasing the work knitters do with our yarns, and have dedicated most of our presence online to do so. Obviously one of the reasons is it's the best way to show our product, for others to see how it looks when worked up in different patterns, but we also think it's important to put a big spotlight on the knitters out there that do a wonderful job.

It's in this spirit that we would like to leave in the blog the 5 projects that you liked best from our Instagram account, as a sort of snapshot of the month.


2019 New Year New Color

This entry was posted on 2nd January, 2019 by Barbara .

Every year the color experts over at Pantone look into their crystal ball and predict a "Color of the Year". When they annouced that the color for 2019 was Living Coral it set our creative wheels in motion, we were inspired!

We decided to work with Rios because, well, we all love Rios and it is such a wonderful yarn to work with we thought it would be a perfect match. As always, it takes time to develop a color until it is perfect enough to bear the Malabrigo name; and then we have to produce enough of it so that you will be able to find it in your favorite LYS. 

But we wanted to share some initial photos with you all first thing in the new year so that you can start planning what you will create with our beautiful new color CORAL! Your very own squishy skeins of this amazing hue will hit the stores in late February of 2019 - so be on the look out and reserve some time on your needles and hooks!
