Fast and Fabulous Franca
If you had to make a graph plotting the number of days left in December and the size of the needles used on the project, you would see a proportional relationship familiar to many a knitter or crocheter as the time of gift giving draws near. We shared a variety of free patterns in our last blog post and today we're focusing on the patterns for Franca, Manos del Uruguay's Bulky 100% Superwash Merino.
Cowls are cozy and it is possible to finish several in a weekend! Each of the following call for one or two skeins of Franca and are available for free: (clockwise starting top right) Franca Hourglass Eyelets Cowl, Francisca Cowl, and Franca My Dear.
The Fairmount Fibers team has several free patterns calling for Franca, sure to be suitable for stocking stuffers or unisex gifts! Shown above from left to right: Quick Franca Mitts, Weekend Cowl, and the Esmeralda Hat & Scarf set.
Frequently we turn to Ravelry for even more Franca project inspiration. We do hope you you'll join us there and share your projects as well! Above, from left to right: RavenAK's Encantadora Cowl, Jessiknitsnature's Drop YO Cowl, and EmilyNan711's Cosy Post Ear Warmer Headband.
