The holiday frenzy will soon turn our attention to projects using bulky yarns or last-minute gift ideas, but before that, we’d like to spotlight a few spectacular fan projects in Manos del Uruguay yarns. We also want to share with you the latest free patterns for possible gifts or a new sweater for yourself! When you choose Manos del Uruguay yarn, be it one skein or several, you help a woman in Uruguay support her family. Thank you!
Persian Dreams is a beautiful pattern composed of colorwork hexagon motifs. Manos del Uruguay Alegria in the semi-solid and variegated colorways provide ample opportunity to achieve your desired color palette. KYFarmgirl used only Blueberry and Silver for her stunning throw and Katylynn06 combined Natural with eleven other semi-solids for a vibrant blanket!
We love to browse Ravelry to see your work and this action always enables us to add more items to the must-make lists! Alegria is wonderful in a crochet garment, as KimBelle62’s Glimmer vest demonstrates; what a great layering piece! Tornangel012’s Effortless Cardigan (top row, middle) in Gloria, Noisygirl’s Double Knit Tartan Mittens (top row, right) in Maxima, and MichelleMcComa’s Reversible Cowl in Alegria Grande (bottom row, right) inspires us to combine colorways for unique results. KarenPow’s Maritime Morning Cowl (bottom row, middle) with a cushy texture in Serpentina is a project we want for ourselves!
Check your Ravelry queues! Did you know the Serena Collection 1 is now available as individual pattern downloads on our free pattern page? Serena is a gorgeous yarn choice for season-spanning garments and accessories. The six patterns are Ana, Cecilia, Elina, Ines, Martina, and Sofia.
We would love to connect with you as you stash, design, swatch, knit, crochet, or weave with Manos del Uruguay yarns! Don’t forget, the Fairmount Fibers team participates on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Ravelry as ManosYarnsUSA.
