Wedding Blankets

Category: Featured Projects

In our previous blog post we shared projects made for use during the wedding ceremony. Today, we’d like to take a moment to spotlight several beautiful blankets made as wedding gifts using Manos del Uruguay yarns.

Four Seasons Throws

The Four Seasons Throws, by Judith Shangold, is knit in Wool Clasica. Knit in twelve squares, each having a different pattern, this is a highly portable project with a myriad of color combinations. Shown above (left to right) are gifts knit by MollyWafflesKnits, NatalieB, and Mstgarden.

Blanket Gifts in Manos Yarns

Jocelyn Tunney’s Salida del Sol design, also in Wool Clasica, is a popular choice as well. It is knit on the bias, so there is no seaming! Shown in the top row are blankets knit by mbarr86 (left) and gallops (right). We also spotted daviesbl’s Super Easy Lap Blanket in Maxima (bottom left) and BarbaraJ’s Canyon Throw (bottom right), another Judith Shangold design, in Wool Clasica.

Wedding Inspirations

Category: Featured Projects

Weddings are as unique as each couple tying the knot. Having a hand-made item can be that extra-special something that complements your theme or color scheme. Manos del Uruguay yarns are available in a variety of weights and colorways just right to use for a wedding accessory or shawl. Today we have gathered a few projects that knitters on Ravelry made for wedding ceremonies.

Shawls seem to be the most common wedding handknit. Here are SophieFrances’ Mrs. Naylor, Katywhumpus’ Lindsey’s Wedding Shawl, and Kimerknits’ Deven’s Wedding Shawl. Each of these were knit in Manos Lace, a truly scrumptious blend of cashmere, silk, and wool!

Two unique items also caught our attention in seeking out wedding project inspiration. EleanorGang’s Delmaya’s Wedding Mitts in Manos Lace and Genesneaky’s Bouquet Wrap in Manos Silk Blend. If these projects, or maybe one from our Pinterest board, have inspired you to make an item for an upcoming wedding, make sure to allow for plenty of time for the crafting! As always, we’d love to hear about the projects you make in Manos yarns, for your own wedding or as a gift. Share your thoughts and pictures with us on Facebook, Ravelry, Twitter or Instagram!
