I finally finished the second malabrigo scarf, this photo shows why I love this scarf, the colours are just indescribebly gorgeous. It knit up really quickly on 6mm needles into a thick, squashy, stretchy fabric. Malabrigo worsted is actually quite soft, excellent scarf material I think. I'm not sure what else you could really do with this yarn (except socks of course), I love the variation in colours but only in small spaces. This scarf used exactly the same amount of yarn as the black forest scarf (2 skeins) but is much wider and longer, and still a reasonably close weave. Try it, try it!
