The softness of Malabrigo Merino Worsted yarns just lends itself beautifully to cables and simple shapes that allow the hand-dyed colors to present themselves.
This blanket features a glorious cable design that is challenging, but so well worth the effort! Wide garter stitch borders and stockinette stitch panels provide a nice contrast to the intricate cable work and give the blanket a finished look.
Make the smaller baby blanket size or go for the larger throw size. Either one will be a treasured piece to showcase this fabulous yarn as well as your knitting talents (and patience)!
