Spring 2021 Elizabeth Smith Collection

Pulling inspiration from a modern earth-tone palette, this Spring collection from Elizabeth Smith uses clean, simple lines and floral eyelet details to create light, transitional layers that are as easy to knit as they are to wear. Top-down or bottom-up, garment or accessory, Elizabeth's thoughtfully crafted collection for Manos del Uruguay is sure to have something that will please! 

--

Forsythia uses asymmetrical visual details and an interesting hi/low split hem construction to give the classic poncho a modern twist. The Silk Blend yarn provides not only softness and sheen, but also a pretty stitch definition that is showcased in the asymmetrical eyelets. The simple, seamless construction is paired with short-row-shaped shoulders for a flattering fit that creates a garment that can be worn either with more ease for a poncho-like fit, or less ease for a more sweater-vest fit.
