Malabrigo Yarn Nube
1 skein = 113 grams

Spun this yarn from a braid of Malabrigo nube in the colorway Persia. I spun it into a puffy worsted/aran 2-ply and got about 140 yards. I knit this hat without a pattern but based on the crown decreases in Turn a Square by Jared Flood.

I cast on 80 stitches and decreased evenly at four places for the crown. I like the way the yarn ended up striping. I’m not nearly a good enough spinner to cause it to stripe intentionally so it was cool to have it happen naturally.
