MFPP: One Stitch, Two Stitch: A Mini Stitch Dictionary for Mini Stitches
There is a new MFPP out, called One Stitch, Two Stitch: A Mini Stitch Dictionary for Mini Stitches by Barbara Benson.
Barbara Benson explains the brilliant concept behind this collection:
What can you do with two stitches? That is the question that prompted this exploration into simple knitting. First peruse the fourteen different stitch patterns in the stitch dictionary. Then select which one of the four easy and fun accessories you would like to make first. Decide which of the stitches you would like to use in the pattern and you are on your way.
This collection contains four patterns, but you can really create 14 different versions of each! How about that? It’s time to get creative!
You can also buy each pattern individually, with the detailed instructions as shown for each, not the 14 different stitch patterns.
Barbara made a video, introducing this collection herself, which we are very excited to share and we hope you like it, too.
You can find the collection on ravelry through this link

MFPP: Ilha Formosa by Connie of Yellowcosmo
Ilha Formosa is what the Portuguese explorers called Taiwan when they first set eyes on it. It means Beautiful Island. It is where I was born, and indeed it is a beautiful island. Each name of the pattern in this collection is a place in Taiwan with the name originated from Taiwan Aboriginal languages.So lovely and bright! You can find the full Ilha Formosa collection here, or you can also browse all our past MFPPs here. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ What on earth is “MFPP”? MFPP stands for Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project.

Malabrigo Quickie: The Colourist by Lisa Hannes
The Colourist is a crescent shaped shawl that highlights the beautiful different shadings of variegated yarns while taking advantage of a classic diamond pattern with elongated slipped stitches. When knitting this shawl it’s just so much fun to see what colour the next elongated stitch will be! This stitch pattern works really well for those variegated yarns, which are so pretty but often hard to find patterns for. It creates a beautifully textured fabric, is easy to work and knits up quickly.Just beautiful! You can find The Colourist on Ravelry or browse our past Quickies here! ~~~~~~~~~~~~ What are Malabrigo Quickies? Quickies are small, fast projects which require only one or two skeins of yarn.

Shearing time at the malabrigo Sheepfold
We have been working on this for a while and wanted to share it with you today, a video of our sheep flock! We hope this will be the first of others, but all in good time! :)
As some of you know, we have our beloved sheep flock, who live on a ranch called La Serena, near our headquarters in Montevideo. In this video we show you around beautiful Piedras de Afilar and demonstrate the process by which we shear our sheep and harvest the beautiful fleece that becomes Malabrigo yarn. We strive to use sustainable and humane farming practices with our ranch and flock – a happy sheep makes the best wool!
We hope you enjoy it, as we enjoy and value sharing what is important to us with you!

Malabrigo Quickie: Woodpile by Susan Villas Lewis
It’s time to start gathering the woodpile for winter, and this long wide scarf is perfect for keeping warm as you work. Bounded by large ribbed sections on the ends, the body features a textured stitch that resembles stacks of wood for winter fires. The simple texture makes it perfect for showing off variegated yarns.What a great project for multicolored yarns! You can find Woodpile on Ravelry, or browse our past Quickies here! ~~~~~~~~~~~~ What are Malabrigo Quickies? Quickies are small, fast projects which require only one or two skeins of yarn.

Rose Jam Set by Amy van de Laar
The Rose Jam hat and matching mitts are toasty, worsted-weight winter warmers featuring an all-over pattern of rose petals. I love the heart-shaped petals of some old fashioned roses, and they inspired a cable pattern of interlocking petals that is easy to knit without a cable needle. The name comes from rose petal jam, a sweet floral preserve that I think goes very well with scones and cream. You will need only one skein of Malabrigo Rios for either the hat or the mitts, or two skeins for the set. The patterns include full charts and written instructions, and a guide to knitting 1x1 cables without a cable needle.Such a beautiful stitch pattern! You can find Rose Jam on Ravelry here , or browse our past Quickies here!
Malabrigo Quickie: Hafren by Barbara Lösche
Hafren is a celtic name. It is said Hafren is the celtic version of “Sabrina”. Other sources state the nymph of the English river Severn is called Hafren. I am sure the nymph of the Severn would be happy to wear Hafren. The scarf combines her home. The blue lace pattern represents the river with its lighter and darker colour like the white crest of the waves. The violet structure pattern shows the shore coloured by the evening sun.Very cool! You can find Hafren on Ravelry here, or browse our past Quickies here!
