Accessories for your legs and feet

Category: Featured Projects

When the seasons start to shift and get cooler, accessories are key! In our last blog post, the spotlight was on items for your head and hands. Today we’d like to share patterns and projects spotted on Ravelry for your legs and feet in Manos del Uruguay Yarns.

Slippers in Manos del Uruguay

Slippers can really make a difference in keeping your feet warm! Shown above from left to right: Skeins4Brains’ Felted Clogs in Wool Clasica, HattiesPurls’ Two-Hour Toe-Ups in Wool Clasica, and emilyskapar’s Simple Garter Stitch Slippers in Maxima. The Moogly blog has a great post with tips on how to make knit and crochet slippers non-slip, that’s a great finishing touch!


Manos del Uruguay Boot toppers

Boot toppers are not just a fashion trend, they are practical! These knits are great for stash-busting and using up leftovers. BegoniaPope knit her Sassy Boot Cuffs in Silk Blend. Dannynkathy used Maxima leftovers to knit a pair of Helmikuu Boot Toppers.

Manos Alegria Accessories

Alegria is our sock weight yarn that also makes great accessories. Legwarmers, like these knit by Beanjeans, are not just for ballerinas! CharliWilson’s Yoga Socks provide warmth and comfort while allowing your feet and toes to stretch as needed.

What sort of accessories are you making for your legs and feet? We hope you’ll share them with us when you share your projects on Facebook, Instagram, and on Ravelry!

Accessories for your hands, neck, and head

Category: Featured Projects

November is the time of year to pull out your wooly accessories! Hats, cowls, and fingerless mitts or gloves are easy items to grab on your way out the door to keep cozy. Most projects of this sort only require one skein of a Manos del Uruguay yarn and a few hours or evenings of work to complete!

Knit Patterns in Manos del Uruguay Yarns

The Fairmount Fibers team has a great assortment of patterns to get you started! In the “Type” drop-down menu in the middle, you’ll see you can filter the results to show patterns for hats, hands, and neck.

Knitters and crocheters know Ravelry is a great place to turn for project inspiration. A few we’ve noticed are shown above (clockwise from top left): Buffalo in the Tetons in Maxima,  Bearly Bonnet in Fino, Fittie Mitts crocheted in Silk Blend, a knit Smitten in Franca, and ABH Sanquhar in Alegria.
