Fall Pattern Round Up
The fall and winter patterns are out and available online, at your local yarn shop and even the bigger bookstores. Whether you choose to make a special gift for someone, or yourself, there is a Manos del Uruguay yarn perfect for your intended project! Knitted slippers and house shoes: These are the new frontier for the legions of knitters passionate about sock knitting. The Knitted Slipper Book is an everything-you-need-to-know guide to making many exciting variations on the sock. There are four slipper designs that call for Manos del Uruguay Wool Clasica. Shown from left to right: Ankle Fringe Boots, Fireside Booties, Pull-on "Puddle" Boots and Renaissance Boots. Mauveine Henley, designed by Amanda Scheuzger, has lace patterning on the body and sleeves, as well as buttons at the collar. The sample shown here is knit in the regal #3038 Aster Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend. Look for it in the Winter 2013 Knitscene. Holiday 2013 Vogue Knitting, #04 Zig Zag Band Lace Top, features stockinette stitch bands of Silk Blend which alternate with fields of simple mini-leaf lace, knit in our sumptuous alpaca/silk/cashmere Lace. The turtleneck is worked in rib. Shown here is 300S Magenta and L7805 Iridessa. Available November 5th! BFF Shawl, by Anniken Allis, can be worn as a scarf or a shawl as shown above. Paired stitches shape the lace pattern of the shawl, worked from the center out to each end. New and seasoned lace crocheters are in for a treat with Fino as the called-for yarn. Interweave Crochet, Accessories 2014 is the issue to pick up along with three skeins of 411 Garnet Brooch.
