The Tinsmithswife used the Scraptastic Cowl by Ambah O’Brien to showcase an assortment of Alegria Grande Bocados! They note, “Using two of C1 and just one each of the other 4 colors. Yarn knits up so beautifully! Definitely thinking of a sweater!” The color palette here is C1-Spirulina, C2-Tahiti, C3-Cactus Flower, C4-Oceano, and C5-Magenta. 

Winterstitches knit the Antler Pullover by Tin Can Knits for her little one using just 2 skeins of Alegria Grande in the Carmine colorway.
