A Perky Little Hat in Malabrigo Rasta
Written By: Betty Clune ~ 3/15/2021


This fun hat is a quick knit with a great pompom! Malabrigo Rasta is an absolute treat to knit with. The yarn is single ply, slightly felted, super bulky 100% Merino Wool. Each skein is 90 yards/150 grams.

Rasta comes in a wide range of unique “watercolor multi” colorways as well as a rainbow of semi-solid basics. The skeins may vary one from the other even within the same dye batch. A great selection of colorways.

A great sportweight yarn. The combination of wool, yak, and synthetic fibers creates warmth and shine. A delight to knit with and to wear. Pictured above in Colorway Leo (7625). 273 yards (250 m)/50 g per ball.
