Alegria continues to be true to its name. In Spanish, Alegria means "Joy" and we're thrilled that so many fans of Manos del Uruguay yarns are finding joy in working with the easy-care blend of ultra-soft superwash merino with durable polyamide. The generous yardage in each skein provides plenty of options when selecting a project. There are currently more than 1000 projects using Alegria in Ravelry; here we are sharing just a few of them to inspire you! Socks are a natural choice for Alegria. The colorways range from bold to subtle, but are all vibrant and beautiful, never boring. Here are just a few of the sock projects of which we have taken notice lately. From left to right: LaGitana's Alegria de Los Calcetines, Ceefah's Rib Fantastic Socks, and Susan360's Herringbone. Even though Alegria is a fingering-weight sock yarn, you do not have to make socks! Alegria is incredibly soft, you'll love it for next-to-skin items. The Esquina Cowl is a free pattern available from Fairmount Fibers; the mitered pattern keeps the colors moving along each row and avoids unwanted pooling or flashing. There are a number small shawl projects for which Alegria is a great choice! Martina Behm's Hitchhiker pattern is one of the most popular patterns using Alegria; in the center is fatcatknitting's project. Alegria is an easy-care yarn, making it a wonderful choice for baby items. On the right is a Wasabi Baby Hat knit by ethamanishi. While browsing Ravelry, we also came across several unique projects using Alegria! From left to right: Naramoon's Sleepy Time, AuntTallulah's Happy Hippo Sistas: The Funky One, and kimbaruski's Piper's Technicolor Romper. Have you shared your project in our Ravelry group yet?
