Summer Tops in Manos del Uruguay Yarns
When the temperature increases as summer settles in, don’t feel you have to put the pause on your projects. Look to the latest summer publications and lighter-weight yarns in fiber blends for warm weather garment making! Today we’re rounding up these new designs in Manos del Uruguay Yarns and sharing a few previously published patterns from the Fairmount Fibers collection.
Pulling inspiration from the Japanese stitch dictionaries of Hitomi Shida and the designer Amy Gleixner's travels to the Imperial Palace in Kyoto, Japan, the Imperial Gardens Sweater uses relatively simple stitches to create an intricate design full of flowing lines. Three to seven skeins of Milo are needed, depending on size. The photographed sample is knit in i7099 Zinc.
The Dudleya top features textural details: a vent at the side seam, cuffs on the short sleeves, exposed shoulder seams. Knit in Serena for beautiful, season-spanning drape and wearability. Shown here in S2302 English.
Paula Pereira's lightweight tee, Caipirinha, with lace detailing is perfect for warm weather! Choose a favorite space-dyed color and two semi-solid colors of Alegria for a summery combination. Shown here in Orla, Spirulina, and Turmeric.
