Every year, new babies are born and children get bigger! Just try to deny the “Awww” factor of a wee handknit, especially when that item is made in a yarn with next-to-skin softness and fun colors. Manos del Uruguay yarns are a great choice for children’s garments; find inspiration in these patterns and projects!
First, a reminder that among the patterns offered by the Fairmount Fibers team, you’ll find a collection of garments for babies (with sizing up through toddlers). These patterns by Melissa LaBarre are a great opportunity to work with Manos yarns that you may have been eyeing for a while, but weren’t quite ready to make an adult-sized sweater. The extensive color range of the yarns means you can work with a classic or modern color palette! Shown above, clockwise from left: Trucha in Gloria, Habanero in Clara, and Pimiento in Alegria.
The latest baby projects spotted on Ravelry in Manos yarn are of a subdued palette, giving each an heirloom quality, don’t you think? Shown above, left to right: proxon’s Playdate sweater in Milo, Kirthedrink’s Baby Selbu Mittens in Fino, Cathrinskey’s Delicate Lace Crochet Bonnet in Fino (top), and Inkywells’ Sweetest Thing Dress in Serena (bottom).
Knit as gifts or for your own little ones, we’d love to see the finished object photos before these special handknits are tucked away and saved for future generations! Manos Yarns is present on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Ravelry!
