Brambles beret

A couple of weeks ago we received our first fall shipment of Malabrigo which included their new Rios yarn. For those of you who haven't seen it yet, Rios is a 4-ply superwash worsted-weight yarn that is, get this, softer than their original worsted. The colors are exactly what you would expect from Malabrigo, but since the yarn base is superwash, the colors are richer and more saturated than their other yarns. In one word, this yarn is AMAZING!! Around the time of the Malabrigo shipment, the new knitty was released and naturally the Brambles beret caught my eye. Originally, I had planned on knitting Brambles out of a single-ply, I love the way cables pop in a single, but somehow I got the idea of knitting it in Rios in my head and I couldn't get it out. All of the colors we ordered were in my personal color palette so instead of antagonizing over picking the right color I went with the color we had most of- Sunset.


The pattern itself was very well written and the progression was logical (obviously written by a math person) and for the first time in quite a while I didn't feel the need to make any changes to the original. I loved this pattern and will likely knit another one in a different size later in the season.
