2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of Manos del Uruguay Yarns. Part of our celebration includes the Cincuenta colorway, available on all bases (except Serpentina) and a rerelease of patterns from our collection worked up in this fabulous colorway. We’d like to invite you to join in the celebration and knit along with us. Read on for the KAL details and your chance to win a prize before you even knit a stitch!
Now through October 21, 2018, knit or crochet any Manos del Uruguay pattern in the Cincuenta colorway. Choose from our sweaters, shawls, or accessories from our diverse group of designers. Share your project plans, preparation and progress on Instagram using the official hashtag #ManosCinuentaKAL or in our Ravelry group. Three winners will be announced the week of October 22, 2018, to receive the grand prize of a pin, tote bag, and skein of Cincuenta yarn.
See Cincuenta Knit Up
We have knit up several patterns using this variegated colorway to inspire you. Trigo, part of our Fall 2018 collection, allows for color play to happen in the best possible ways. Silk Blend in Cincuenta, Saffron, Chartreuse, Tahiti, and Magenta are shown at left. Murga combines Cincuenta on Franca with Limon. The Glorious Cincuenta Cowl is a new free pattern in Gloria, shown here in Cincuenta and Vereda. One skein of Franca, bottom right, knits up quickly into the Nina Hat. In the coming days, we’ll be sharing additional patterns knit with Cincuenta including the Simple Ribbed Hat, the Onda Cowl, and Escama del Dragon Cowl.
On Ravelry, we’ve already spotted a few projects using this beautiful colorway. Goldengourd knit a Seascapes Wrap (left) with the Cincuenta colorway of Marina, and Rob Thompson used Cincuenta on Maxima in his Basic Square Scarf (right).
