My local yarn store had a sample of this pattern knit up to feature Malabrigo's new sport weight yarn, Arroyo. I really liked the colorways of Arroyo, so I decided to join in. The yarn is super soft and is really gorgeous. I hemmed and hawed forever trying to decide what colorway to get, but I'm happy with my choice. The yarn was a tad splitty for my taste, but nothing that drove me up the wall.
