Project Spotlight: Gloves + Mitts in Manos del Uruguay Yarns
Gloves and mitts, much like socks, are practical and portable projects. They can be knit or crocheted in a variety of yarn weights, stitches, and colors. Tuck them into a coat pocket or bag and be ready for cool mornings and evenings as the local weather transitions and fluctuates. Today we’re putting the spotlight on projects to keep your hands toasty in Manos del Uruguay yarns!
Inspiration is not hard to find, especially when we browse Ravelry! Clockwise from top left: Pavesina’s My First Gloves in Alegria, DeniseL’s Drops of Spring Mitts in Alegria Grande Bocados, Saradenbo’s Layer Cake Mitts in Alegria, Kakakrokodil’s Stormcloud Mitts in Fino, Anarcadia’s The World’s Simplest Mittens in Maxima, and Laj62896’s Myxella in Serena.
A touch of texture keeps the knitting interesting without being overwhelming. Elegant cables and practical ribbing are combined in the Telemark Mitts, by Aud Bergo, in Alegria. Elsje Vermunt’s Oldambt Mittens in Fino, are inspired by the numerous wheat fields that are situated in the most northeastern part of the Netherlands.
We encourage you to try new techniques, new color combinations, and use up your leftovers with a handy pair of gloves or mitts. For even more pattern inspiration, the Fairmount Fibers team has a great assortment of free and paid-for patterns to browse and a dedicated Pinterest board to curate ideas.
