If you're looking for a quick, holiday project that's also quite the showstopper, we think the Lara Hat from designer Kristel Nieves is a gem! With two skeins of Malabrigo Rasta - one each of two different colors - we made two adult sized hats (one the reverse of the other, colorwise). That's a heck of a lot of bang for your buck!
The pattern for Lara is gettable by clicking HERE; it includes handy step-by-step instructions for that striking diagonal stitch-y thing!

*Our sample is made up in Ivory and Piedras with a caramel pom.
