About the Yarn
Malabrigo Silky Merino is a soft, DK weight singles yarn with a high silk content. It has a tendency to grow with washing, so it’s worth washing your swatch before measuring gauge. This pattern will work in a variety of yarns, so when choosing yarns for your project, look for soft DK weight yarn that gives you a fabric you like at the recommended gauge.
