We agree with the idea of doing something special for yourself now that the holidays are over. Why not indulge in a special skein or two of a luxurious Manos del Uruguay yarn you might have fondled at the yarn shop or admired online? Remember, with each purchased skein of Manos del Uruguay yarn you will be helping a woman to support her family. We have gathered a selection of free patterns that call for 1-2 skeins of Fino, Serena, or Lace. Fino combines the softness of merino wool with the lustre of silk in a lightweight yarn that’s perfect for heirloom accessories or luxurious garments. The Martine Hat, by Lisa R. Myers, features a stitch pattern that will hold your interest right through the crown decreases. Cowl Freyja, by Camille Coizy, is simply stunning if you choose to wear it doubled or long, with the bead details or without. Serena is season-spanning blend of pima cotton and baby alpaca with fantastic drape, perfect for lightweight layering of warmth. The Simple Sideways Triangle Scarf will nicely showcase either the tonal shades or space-dyed variegation of each colorway, making this a go-to accessory. Fingerless gloves are not just for outside wear! The Lady Violet's Dinner Gauntlets are completely appropriate to wear inside, working at the computer, reading, or working on your next project. The ones shown here were made by needlemania. TrudyG knit this version of the Mirabelle Lace Scarf. The pattern, once established, is easy to remember, making for an enjoyable project. Start now on the Ethereal Tank and have it ready to wear when warmer days return or wear it under a cardigan or jacket now!
