Wow, I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is just 2 weeks away. That means it’s time to get hopping on all those handmade Christmas gifts. If you are a knitter or crocheter, Malabrigo Rasta is a beautiful kettle dyed bulky weight yarn for those quick knit gifts. It’s a bit pricy but with 90 yards (82 meters) and using large knitting needles, one skein makes a great gift in about 2 or 3 hours!
Here is the first gift I have completed.
1 Skein Rasta Double Moss Stitch Mobius Cowl
This pattern is a quick knit for those times when you want to give someone you love a homemade gift but time is short. The texture from the double moss stitch really enhances the beauty of the yarn while making this completely reversible! This project is knit from the inside out. In other words, you will cast on and that will be your center of the cowl. Then, every round you knit will add stitches to either side of this cast on.
