We love to work with yarn and share our ideas on patterns and techniques. Our last post included several projects to take your skills to the next level. Each time we take a look at the projects on Ravelry in Manos del Uruguay yarns, our own queue grows! Here are a few fitting the techniques we suggested.
SusanMacL’s Dragon Striped Poncho in Wool Clasica combines the Drachenfels shawl pattern and Cowl Neck Stripe Poncho. The result is a stash-busting project that is warm and on trend! Fibermania’s Diamond Panel Jacket highlights the variegated colorway of Silk Blend. Have you tried a modular design yet?
Two Ravelry users recently knit the Silverleaf shawl pattern. Nvlad used Clara, and this was her first lace project! Robbieatteaforewe used Clara and Silk Blend for a color-blocked version. Lusciousluka brought the Florido cowl lattice lace stitch pattern into a Florido Hat in Silk Blend.
Cables and Crochet
Mdbatten knit up the Winter Sweater project with Gloria held double. Her project notes say it took 18 hours, over 4 days! The cable design on the front adds a fun twist to a straightforward design. Sylviameadows’ My Blue Jeans Shawl using Marina is her second attempt at crochet. Would you have guessed that?
