New Knitting Patterns in Manos del Uruguay Yarns

Are you feeling the urge to cast on something new? This time of the year, we appreciate fresh new designs that are also practical and can be worn while the seasons start to change. Here are three of our newest patterns in Manos del Uruguay yarns

If you’ve ever looked at a top-down triangular shawl and thought, “I like it -- but it’s going to take forever to get to the interesting bits,” then The Interesting Bits pattern is the shawl for you. It has a conventional top-down option (above left), but there’s also a scarf version (above, right) that skips all the lead-up and begins right where the slip-stitch pattern is. So whether you’re in the mood for some (fairly) mindless knitting first, or just want to skip to the interesting bits, this one’s for you! The shawl is knit in Milo, with Roma for the main color and Beehive as the contrast color. Mulberry (main color) and Huarache (contrast) colorways of Feliz make up the scarf. 

The Contrails Cardigan is inspired by the long white feathery contrails left in the sky as planes pass overhead. It’s knit with one strand of Marina and 2 strands of Cabrito in two different colors to create a color effect that is subtle and soft, shifting over the course of the garment. This garment is knit at a larger gauge, creating a soft and airy fabric. It’s a simple construction for a timeless silhouette. 

As an ode to one of our favorite woolly creatures, we present the Psychedelic Sheep Hat + Cowl! Knit in Manos del Uruguay's classic bright colorway Locura Fluo on Alegria Grande, we celebrate sheep in a colorful and fun way!

Crochet fans, we spotted these two free patterns on Ravelry! The Hippy Dippy hat is a cute and quick project in Silk Blend. The Italian Spy Handbag is a simple pattern that uses just one skein of Fino

Happy knitting and crocheting as you await the official arrival of spring! Let us know what you’re working on by sharing your photos with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Ravelry.

  • I am sitting down to knit the onete scarf and for some reason I am confused. Most likely over thinking it cause that’s my,specialty. It is a triangle ….but you start with one stitch and do eyelet after almost done but that end has a point ? What am I doing wrong ?

    Thank you in advance

  • Looking for some information about how to add edging to onette scarf. Do I pick up edge stitches after knitting the core triangle of the scarf? Maybe this is obvious to more experienced knitters but not to me. Love your patterns and the manos del Uruguay yarn.
