In our previous post, we introduced you to Serpentina. This yarn is one of two new Manos del Uruguay yarns making its way to the stashes, hearts, needles, and hooks of our fans right now. When you see it on the shelves of your local yarn shop (click here to find one near you), keep these projects in mind for inspiration!
Project Inspiration for Serpentina
Pick up a skein of Serpentina and notice how soft and squishy it is – a natural choice for a one-skein project using an aran-weight yarn is a cowl. Shown above left is KnitterNinjaShar’s Diagonal Rib Cowl. Did you hear it discussed on the Yarniacs podcast Episode 147? Each skein has 142 yards, plenty for a crochet project! Nutmegknitter crocheted the One Good Turn cowl, above right, in just one morning.
New Patterns for Serpentina
We are looking forward to new patterns to support this yarn, the first of which is the Serpentina Scarf by Lucinda Iglesias, which calls for two skeins of Serpentina. The knitters at Fiber and Vine recently shared a sneak peek of a forthcoming pattern – check out those earflaps!
