2020 Spring Pattern Round Up in Manos del Uruguay Yarns
Though the day-to-day routine may be anything but, we are turning to our yarns, needles, and hooks for comfort. Knitting and crochet are certainly not cancelled, and are available to provide a distraction when you need it. Lucky for us we are able to browse, and often purchase, patterns on Ravelry and in the digital issues of our favorite magazines for new designs featuring Manos del Uruguay yarns. We also spotted two freebies to share, enjoy!
New Crochet Designs
The Furrow Shrug is an open-front crocheted design by Jane Howorth. Crossed double-crochet stitches read as a rich herringbone pattern, while the sleeves are kept simple. Crocheted in Franca, this sweater works up in no time; look for it in the Spring 2020 Interweave Crochet.
The Clean Lines Shawl uses two colorways of Marina to play with mosaic stitches resulting in a stunning accessory. When finished and blocked, the shawl measures 80” along the top curve, 55” along the bottom, and 48” along the side. Inside Crochet, Issue 124 is where Anna Nikipirowicz’s pattern is published.
New Knitting Designs
A perfect layering piece, the Flax Flower Top is worked in the round from the bottom up, starting with a band of dainty diamond-lace motifs. Knit in Milo, our merino/linen-blend, this top is sure to become a season-spanning staple. This Munro Sisters3 pattern is included in Knitscene’s Summer 2020 issue.
Fluo Flow, by Joji Locatelli, is a rectangular wrap composed of garter stitch chevron stripes with an eyelet detail. This relaxing spring knit uses six skeins of Alegria and measures 19.5" x 60" when finished. The pattern is included in Vogue Knitting, Late Winter 2020.
Two Free Knitting Patterns
If you’re looking to practice colorwork knitting, we have two free patterns to share and each is knit in Alpaca Heather. Start simply with the Paca Mittens, by Luciana Lopez, to keep your hands warm. The Rambla Sweater is a simple yet alluring sweater knit designed by Marcela Chang Knits. The sweater is available in English and Spanish for free on Ravelry.
