The days are still hot, but the fall chill will be here before we know it. We’re starting to feel the sweater-knitting bug creeping in and have some fun new patterns featuring Manos del Uruguay yarns. Get your needles and hooks ready to start something new!
Patterns for the Last Gasp of Summer
Rockefeller by Lisa Ross is a perfect shell for late summer and can be layered under a blazer to transition to fall. This tank uses structured ribbing to elongate and flatter the feminine figure, making it the perfect date-night piece, but it’s also subtle enough to wear to the office. Rockefeller was featured in Twist Collective’s summer issue and is worked out of Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend for a touch of luxury and drape.
The Time-Honored Sweater by Natasha Robarge is a sexy crochet sweater featuring mesh and large cables. This is perfect for layering in late summer, especially as the evenings grow cooler. The Time-Honored Sweater was featured in Interweave Crochet’s Summer issue and uses our linen blend yarn, Manos del Uruguay Milo.
Patterns for Sweater Weather
Next up is the Margot Knit Top by Faye Kennington, featured in Knitscene’s Fall 2018 issue. Perfect for fall layering, this top features several colors of Manos del Uruguay Maxima. Mix and match your stripes using any of our semi-solid colors to create your own palette. The herringbone pattern at the bust adds texture and sophistication to this sweater, which may become your favorite new garment for fall!
The Plum Toddy Pullover by Sandi Prosser is a cozy, oversized pullover perfect for chilly fall days. Boxy shaping is accentuated by geometric striping to create visual interest while still being casual enough to become your favorite weekend sweater. Plum Toddy is featured in Creative Knitting’s Autumn issue and is worked in Manos del Uruguay Milo.
The Pen and Ink Pullover by Lana Jois is a delightful pullover with pops of unexpected color in “vents” at the hem and wrists. Designed in Manos del Uruguay Maxima with Serpentina in the vents, the color combinations for this sweater are endless. Keep it subtle with a semi-solid colored body and small variegated pops, or make it fun and bright with some of our new variegated colors and a complementary solid for your accents. This pullover is featured in the Interweave Knits store.
