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

    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
