Yésica Hat (2019PP-6)


The Yésica Collection is a full Fall / Winter handmade wardrobe, exploring the different weights and fibers of Manos del Uruguay yarns! Intended to be mixed and matched, they can be worn together to create different looks and play with the stunning color palette from Manos.

\\\\\\\///////

With Manos del Uruguay’s superbulky Franca yarn, the Yésica Vest and Yésica Hat incorporate different stitches and design elements to show off the yarn’s thickness and colors. The Yésica Vest is a hi-lo garment, knitted bottom up with part in biased fabric and textured slipped stitches - a super fun and fast knitting project! The Yésica Hat is knitted sideways, with a beautiful sequence of slipped stitches.
