Spring is in the air but the wind continues to claw at our necks. Two new cowl patterns for Manos del Uruguay were released today and they are both FREE! Here’s hoping they satisfy the need for an infusion of spring color and some protection from the elements.
This cowl is knit with one skein of Manos del Uruguay Fino and one skein of Alegria and worked in a woven stitch pattern. Watch the magical process that is knitting with a semi-solid background and a wildly colorful foreground. This double long cowl can be worn many ways and provides a good deal of warmth without being at all bulky.
Knit out of one skein of Alegria this is a quick project that works up into a heavenly soft, pillowy texture. The stitch pattern breaks up the colors of the hand-dyed yarn to produce a painterly, spattering of colors.
Thanks to Fairmount Fibers for the beautiful photos.
