Just ordered some Malabrigo Chunky...what to knit?

Since joing KH, I’ve read lots and lots about how fantastic Malabrigo is. I’ve never seen this wool in Australia, so I’ve just ordered 2 skeins of Malabrigo Merino Chunky in Pink Frost:cheering:

So now the big question is what to make with it:shrug:

I will have approx 210yards. I’m currently knitting my first garment - a coat, but I don’t know how much I would wear a jumper (plus I don’t think there would be enough wool anyway).

So maybe a scarf or something? I’ve just finished the branching leaf pattern from knitty and am currently doing the knitty hearts scarf. Maybe I will give this one to my mum and use the Malabrigo to do another heart scarf?

Suggested gauge/needles for the Chunky is: [SIZE=4][SIZE=2]Gauge: 3-3.5 sts/in on US size 10-11/6-8 mm needles[/SIZE] [/SIZE]

I’ve book marked a few scarf patterns from KPC, but mostly lace type ones so any suggestions or links would be great :slight_smile:

Thanks for all the suggestions,

You might be able to get a scarf out of that. I bought 2 hanks of the chunky Mmmmmalabrigo & made a couple of adult hats (nothin’ fancy, just a roll-brim) and a headband.

Hmmm, maybe I should see if I can get another skein or two?

hmm… is that yardage right? I thought that Chunky was 65 or 85 yards? :think:

It says it is approx 104 yards per skein:??

I’m thinking I’d like to have a go at an Irish Hiking Scarf so I’m going to see if I can add a couple more skeins to my order.

Any other suggestions would be great still.


well now i am wondering which one is the shorter yardage…lol. I think malabrigo looks GREAT in the irish hiking scarf. I did a feather n fan in one skein of the worsted which is 215 yards. It was shorter than I like but it worked. Of course cables take more yardage so yeah definitely going to need more skeins for that scarf. should be gorgeous though!
