Oh Malabrigo

I was gifted this Malabrigo worsted weight yarn from a fellow friend on the Ravelry group "Random Acts of Kindness." 

I had heard about this yarn on the DoubleKnit Podcast and placed it on my monthly wishlist.  I was surprised that the donor didn't want this yarn.

This under-spun worsted weight yarn is luxurous and very nice to work with. I made this Saroyan Shawlette, available for free on Ravelry.  

The Saroyan is the opposite of the Cedar Leaf Shawl that you knit vertically instead of horizontally and the leaves are knitted on as you move up the pattern.  While the Cedar Leaf Shawlette has a fixed width, you can make the Saroyan Shawl as long and as wide as you want.
