I did it, yesterday after knitting group, I went to a no so local yarn store and bought myself some MMMMMMalabrigo! It is so beautiful, burgundy colors that varies from a light type of red to deep purples. I will post pictures tomorrow, too late for a good pic right now.

I am at KPC right now looking for a scarf for me that would show off the colors somewhat. But you all know how many scarf patterns there are there, I just don't think I want to look at every single pattern. So I am asking you all, what scarf pattern would be good for Malabrigo?

And I almost bought some Manos, who knows I have to go back there and may come back with that too!! (yep, it is nice to have something other than craft store yarns-not that there is anything wrong with it!)

I think variegated tones look nice in the So Called Scarf. I'd avoid anything too decorative like cables.

I love the softness of Malabrigo, however am not a big fan of scarves. Last year I made my self a neck gaitor. I love it and wear it everyday in the winter! I have made several this year from the Luxe Neck Warmer pattern in Greetings from Knit Cafe. It would be so nice in Malabrigo!

Enjoy your purchase!

I second the vote for the "My So-Called Scarf", it really shows off the variegated colours well as it's simple enough but still interesting.

Those colors sound beautiful! How many skeins do you have?
I made a nice scarf using a single skein of Malabrigo in the Rainy Day Scarf Pattern. It's free. You can pull it up on ravelry.

I have Silvers Reversible Cable Scarf on the needles. I have had for a while now. It is knit with Malabrigo. I took this picture a while back. I have it almost finished now.

The good old Scrunchable scarf works out beautifully with Mmmm, too. So soft and cushy!

I'll second the Scrunchable Scarf. I made one with a couple of skeins of Mmmmalabrigo and it turned out lovely!

I have made several scarves with Malabrigo, and I agree with Ingrid about the scrunchable scarf, but last week I made the "one row handspun" scarf (google it) which is lovely too.

I did the Rainy Day Scarf also with one skein of Mmmmm and it turned out so pretty! My MIL loved it (it was her Christmas gift).

I made 4 Malibrigo scarves as Christmas presents. I used this pattern:

I love the way this scarf turns out. It is a great pattern, fun to knit and it comes out really pretty. The only change to the pattern that I made was that I did it on size 8 needles.

Thank you all for the replies! I decided on the scrunchable scarf and have started it. I have a pic here of it and of course the coloring here is not as strong as it is here with me. The colors oare more reds to deep dark purples. I now understand why so many of you love this stuff! It really does not feel at all like wool, it is just so soft and the colors-I just love this stuff!! http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i25/hum39/Image817.jpg
