So Much Sweater Potential

I'm the proud owner of 6 skeins of Malabrigo Rios in the Azul Profundo colorway.Malabrigo's colorways are compelling, but Malabrigo worsted is a single ply, and I like hard wearing yarns that don't pill when you look at them funny. When I read that there was a superwash, plied Malabrigo yarn coming out, I had to have some.

I know that I want to make a cardigan, but beyond that, I'm stumped. Yoked or raglan? Buttons or zipper? Ruffles or ribbing? Cables or plain stockinette? Long or cropped? I have a bad case of analysis paralysis.

Potential cardigans are (Ravelry links):
At different times of the day, different cardigans call to me. I'm even thinking about just making a simple top-down cardigan with a boatneck. Maybe I'll learn how to steek, too, since I'm much faster when I knit in the round.


  1. Mmmmm, Malabrigo, and in blue, my favorite color! That's going to be lovely, whatever you choose.

  2. You could do the Tea Leaves cardigan!

  3. I love that color. I think I'm one of the few Malabrigo virgins.

    I have the same problem trying to decide on patterns.

  4. I LOVE the new Rios. It's so soft and knits up lovely.

  5. tea leaves cardi is a great suggestion. i got 5 skeins of Purpuras in Rios. LOVE IT.
    i think i'm going to do Lady Kina cardi (short-sleeved) with them. not sure though.
    so hard to choose!! :o)
