If you are traveling this summer, relaxing poolside or enjoying lazy days at home, don't forget to keep your knitting and crochet projects at hand! Choose your favorite Manos del Uruguay yarn and a pattern that is interesting but not demanding and you will be set for fiber fun! FairmountFibers.com. The Cesta Cowl, designed by Lisa R. Myers, uses 2 skeins of Fino in this great unisex design that pairs garter stitch with a woven cable pattern. To knit the Camote Pocket Scarf, designed by Cassandra Milani, you will need 3 skeins of Maxima. Don't you love the end pockets? They are great for warmth or storage! Andrea Mules designed the Augusta Shawl to spotlight different possible gradient color combinations using Serena in a crochet pattern. Frequently we look to Ravelry and our Ravelry group for additional project inspiration. Shawls and wraps like these are portable and lightweight making them perfect for summer. We really like likecotton's version of Westloop using Fino in the Inkwell and Corsage colorways. Annestrikker improvised her own pattern using an easy to memorize lace pattern she liked with Serena in her Grey Waves Wrap. Superflychild incorporated graduated bands of the Corsage and Pocketwatch colorways of Fino in this Fino Circle Scarf (another free pattern from Fairmount Fibers!). Here's to a great summer! Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter pages when you're out and about for our newest patterns, project inspiration and more!
