    I knitted the State Street Cowl with this yarn (actually.... I knitted 7 of them... for Christmas gifts!) It was a fantastic choice for yarn as it's very soft, squishy, and warm! I have gotten so many compliments on the cowls! The Malabrigo chunky yarn is dyed so beautifully and comes in a nice range of colors. It also feels amazing to knit with (which is a must!) *FYI - For anyone making this cowl w/ Malabrigo chunky: I had to knit fewer rows of ribbing because there wasn't enough yarn to do the complete pattern. It still looks amazing!

      More flattering on thin figures

      By Georgia Gypsy

      About Me Enthusiast

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Easy To Fix
      • Good color selection
      • Good Weight
      • Hides Mistakes
      • Knits Quickly
      • Nice Texture

      Cons

      • Tangled Within Skein

      Best Uses

      • Gloves
      • Hats
      • Scarves

      Comments about Malabrigo Chunky:

      Yarn arrives in skeins that must be wound into balls. About 25% of skeins have tangles inside them, making the winding process go too slowly.

      This weight yarn is more flattering to the thin figure unless it is in a hat or gloves. Neck warmer or scarf adds to the weight around the neck on a more rounded figure.

      Color range is beautiful.

                  I purchased two skeins of this in different colors to knit some hats for Christmas. They knit up fast and easy. Both were super warm too. I would use this again.

                        Excellent for hats and other garments as it is soft and non-itchy. My fussy kids happily wear their hats knit with Malabrigo. Great colors too
