My current work-in-progress is made of Malabrigo chunky in "stonechat". I was going to knit it up in seed stitch but got lazy - k1 p1 instead for the entire hank and seaming to make it a "necklace-like" cowl for my daughter's teacher. It's turning out to be very squooshy!
I think she'll like it! Since the weather has gotten so much more cold, I've noticed she has two grey scarves she switches between. This should be a nice, more colorful change, without being overly bright.
