Make it in Milo
Garments made for warmer weather should be versatile to handle indoor air conditioning and outside heat and humidity. Milo, our merino and linen blend, is a great go-to choice for a wide variety of garments and accessories as you’ll see in the projects we are spotlighting today.
Escalante is a new size-inclusive design by Hannah Singleton. Milo knits up with a lovely drape, perfect for lightweight garments like this strappy tank. The Roma colorway is featured in the pattern photos. One test knitter, greypineknits, used the Natural colorway of Milo in her project.
These two sunny sweaters were knit in Milo by our friends on Ravelry. Ausjane’s Vitamin D for Me (left), in Savana is perfect as a light layer, and writersangel2’s Anker’s Summer Shirt in Pollen features a fun short-sleeve modification.
Why not take the time this summer to work on a scarf to have ready for the first chilly mornings in the fall? Whizdinger is a free three-color pattern that combines garter stitch and short rows for an engaging knit. The short row technique is the same as in the Destello Scarf; click here for our tutorial.
We hope you'll put Manos del Uruguay Milo on your "must-try" list this season! The sport-weight wool-linen yarn is a treat to work with, creating fabrics with a beautiful drape and crisp stitch definition. Be sure to share your projects with us in Ravelry, on Facebook or Instagram!
