Spotlight on Knit and Crochet Projects
When you are surrounded by yarn, you can’t help but imagine the different ways in which the patterns, colorways, and various yarn bases might play together. We enjoy the opportunity to vicariously knit and crochet through the work of our fans, and we love to see the combinations everyone chooses. Today we’re sharing several fan projects knit or crocheted in Manos del Uruguay yarns that are inspiring our next cast-on plans.
Our previous blog post put projects using Cabrito in the spotlight. Here is a round-up of wonderful projects using our other bases.
