Elizabeth Smith + Manos del Uruguay Spring 2021
Winter weather makes spring days feel like they are very far away. While some people look to seed catalogs, we look to new patterns! Pulling inspiration from a modern earth-tone palette, our Spring collection from Elizabeth Smith uses clean, simple lines and floral eyelet details to create light, transitional layers that are as easy to knit as they are to wear.
Mountain Laurel is an asymmetrical scarf/shawl combining simple stockinette stitch and eyelet details with the visual interest of a marled fabric. Knit with a double strand of Fino (448 Whalebone (MC) and Kit #14 Phoebe), this is a relaxing and interesting knit.
Hyacinth showcases the natural beauty and drape of the Alpaca Heather yarn (H2446 Petrol), and is sure to complement any outfit you layer it with. With its seamless construction and classic A-line shaping, this is a go-to choice for the changing seasons.
The diagonal lines of eyelet stitches adorn just one side of the Snowdrop cowl for an asymmetrical, modern twist. This one-skein project is light and airy, yet warm in Alegria (A2349 Oxygen).
Forsythia features asymmetrical visual details and an interesting hi/low split-hem construction. The fit of this garment can be more like a poncho or sweater vest, depending on the knitter’s desired ease. Silk Blend (300X Topaz) provides not only softness and sheen, but also a pretty stitch definition that is showcased in the eyelets.
The Narcissus pullover showcases the beautiful drape and texture of Milo (i2149 Petal) and creates a silhouette that has both structure and drape. This is a simple and elegant design with the drop-shoulder construction paired with short-row-shaped shoulders, and 3/4-length sleeves.
Amaryllis combines classic top-down, seamless construction with a flattering “wear with anything” A-line silhouette, which drapes perfectly with the Serena yarn. The marled effect created by holding 2 strands of Serena in different colors (S2214 Biscotti and S2133 Seashell) together creates a beautiful, speckled fabric. We look forward to seeing the color combinations you select to create your unique look!
Worked all in one piece in Feliz (Z2127 Copper), Azalea features bottom-up construction, simple details and a silhouette and drape perfect for spring layering. The simplicity of the construction allows for easy length alterations and you can choose to wear it with more or less ease depending on your desired fit.
We’re keeping an eye out for new finished items from this collection. The first is this sample in the Z9977 Provence colorway, knit for the Tinsmith’s Wife, by Ravelry user sfb.
Which of these new designs will make it to your queues and needles first?
