Now available, five new patterns created especially for Manos del Uruguay that celebrate the beauty and versatility of the yarn. With a variety of stylish designs, everyone will find something they want on their needles! You can see the whole collection on the Fairmount Fibers’ website.
The first pattern is Flan.
Flan is a lace shawlette made with Fino, a fingering weight merino and silk blend. This makes for a warm wrap with nice drape and the luxurious touch of silk for the lightest bit of sheen. This shawl can be dressed up or down. It will be at home over a t-shirt or sweater while walking in cool evening air, or accompanying an evening dress for a night out on the town. Special thanks to my sample knitter Barb, who did an excellent job!
The cables and lace really pop thanks to this squishy round singles yarn. The 100% merino wool will keep out the chill of both fall and winter days. Wear it long as an infinity scarf or doubled up for a fantastically cozy cowl. The creative cable design will make knitting it a fun and rewarding challenge.
Bizcocho uses two yarns to create an elegantly simple pullover with a touch of color.
This sweater is created with Silk Blend, a brilliant DK weight merino/silk for the body and Lace, a luxurious alpaca, silk, and cashmere for the inlaid accents. To minimize finishing, Bizcocho is knit seamlessly from the bottom up and features a round yoke construction. Once off your needles, you’ll have a gorgeous sweater ready to wear with anything.
Serena is an interesting combination of alpaca and cotton. This cap-sleeve tunic will be light and soft. Lace side panels add a touch of charm peeking out from under spring coats as well as waving in a summer breeze. It is knit in the round from the bottom up and features set-in sleeves and a swingy a-line shape that will flatter all figures.
My final pattern is Tarta, a color-blocked cardigan with contrasting collar and buttonbands.
Created from the same Silk Blend yarn as Bizcocho, Tarta will become your favorite go-to sweater. Simple color-work transitions between blocks of colors keeping this classic silhouette looking sophisticated no matter when you wear it. There are so many beautiful shades of Silk Blend, you can make sweaters with all your favorite color combinations!
