I have always loved the colors of Malabrigo yarns and thus am always in search of a stitch to best show off the colorways. There are many knit stitches that do the job well, but what about crochet? This cloche was designed to show the beauty of crochet through a gorgeous yarn. It is because of this that I suggest a variegated or self striping yarn, though solid colors look lovely as well.
