Lana Jois + Manos del Uruguay Fall 2020
The Fall 2020 collection by Lana Jois is full of texture in your favorite Manos del Uruguay yarns. In a year of staying put, this collection is a well-traveled endeavor: yarns from Uruguay, a designer in India, garments photographed in Maine, and patterns which are named to highlight historical landmarks in Philadelphia. Join us in celebrating the beautiful designs by Lana Jois - neutrals or bright colors will flatter these dimensional fabrics equally well!
The Lilacs House sweater is knit in one piece from cuff to cuff, turning traditional cables on their side. It has elegant shaping from shoulder to neck for flattering drape, and the Silk Blend will feel luscious next to your skin! Photographed in 3234 Labyrinth.
A dots-and-stripes slip-stitch pattern and easy oversized shape make Letitia Street House a trans-seasonal piece! Knit in Milo, the linen-wool content of the yarn gives the garment both lightness and a hint of rustic texture. Shown in i2800 Natural (MC), i2061 Pollen (CC1), i2182 Kasbah (CC2), and i2114 Madder (CC3)
Ormiston shows off Wool Clasica with simple ribs in a dynamic design - the shifting direction of the rib stitch makes for an engaging knit you won’t want to put down! 25 Shale, shown here, makes for a great goes-with-everything colorway.
In Lemon Hill, horizontal ribs play up the texture of handspun Serpentina and give finish-free edges at the armholes, fronts, and shawl collar. Shown here in P1978 Hilma, remember that each skein of Serpentina is unique, and the colors are totally random: they will not stack or pool.
Play with different yarn weights and wide ribs creates a lightly pleated effect in Boelson Cottage, a simple oblong wrap. Fino in 447 Pram and Cabrito in R6966 Tiza are paired here.
Twisted stitches make 1x1 rib pop in Maxima! The swirling patterns that decorate both Hatfield hat and mitts are made with strategically placed increases and decreases. Two skeins of M2114 Madder will make all sizes of this set.
