It’s not quite summer, even though we are dreaming about getaways and low-key weekends. We are of course planning on lots of knitting and crocheting. There are a number of fabulous patterns published online and in print topping our list of needle-adjacent or up-next projects. We’re excited to share these great ideas calling for Manos del Uruguay yarns with you today!
Hunter Hammersen has done it again! In the Wavering Hat, she combines Manos del Uruguay Alegria in Nickel for the hat body with Manos del Uruguay Clara in Miel for the colorwork stripe. As an extra bonus, the pattern includes a detailed tutorial to create and secure a detachable pom-pom!
The Maypole Shawl from Little Church Knits is an easy, semi-circular shawl that begins with a gentle stockinette body. The lace border with a whimsical pattern of big polka dots floating in mesh is knitted continuously, pretty to look at and fun to knit. Shown here in Manos del Uruguay Alegria in #A2800 natural (MC), 2 skeins; #A9453 Macachines (CC), 1 skein.
The Lenio Shawl by Joy of Motion is a perfect one-skein project for Manos del Uruguay Marina. You could even complete the crochet work in a weekend! Whip one up for a perfect lightweight summer shawl.
Kate Gilbert’s Sway cardigan in Clara is a beautiful showcase for our hand-dyed yarn. Worked in pieces, the fronts are triangles worked from the lower corner up to the raglan seam. Our light and lofty sport-weight yarn is a dream to use in lightweight sweaters. Black Forest, C24, is shown here.

On cool mountain nights, wrap up in the Buena Vista Stole; this Southwest-inspired shawl features graphic crosses, garter stitch, and simple lace for an unexpectedly impressive knit. Sandhya S.’s design for Interweave Knits calls for Milo; the modeled project was knit in #i2156 Venezia.
Arica Presinal’s design, The Flowers that Be, conveys an easy, breezy vibe. Worked in the wool and linen blend of Milo, it is a lightweight piece to dress up or down this summer. The pattern is included in I Like Crochet, June 2018.
