Manos Yarns and Floral Inspirations
Did you know that there are more than thirty-five colorways that are named for a floral inspiration across the different bases of Manos del Uruguay Yarns? In this blog post, we'd like to share projects and patterns made in four of these unique colorways: Wildflowers, Peony, Lilypad and Glicinas. The Signs of Spring cowl, by Lisa R. Myers, is a free download from Fairmount Fibers, and calls for two skeins of Serena. Shown here in S8931 Wildflowers (left), handmadebykoren's project in S2609 Peony (top), and mathiri's project in S9095 Lilypad (bottom). The Glicinas colorway of Alegria is inspired by the Wisteria plant, you might recall from our What's In a Name? post. Here are (clockwise from top left) redfox-knits' Wisteria Wrap, Brennee's Starshower, wizbit13uk's Spring Geese, and Tihiri's Betsy Cardigan. We hope we have inspired you to indulge in a favorite floral colorway of Manos Yarn for your next project! Are you using a floral colorway to create a floral motif, like this crochet pansy trim we spotted on Silverpebble2's Instagram feed? Let us know what your favorite is by sharing your photos and comments on the Fairmount Fibers Facebook page, Ravelry group, Twitter or Instagram!
