Manos del Uruguay Serena is an all-season yarn that drapes beautifully and is kettle-dyed in heathered, stonewashed shades. We love it in scarves, hats and cowls and, of course, vests and sweaters.
Isabell Kraemer designed the Ashes pullover with Manos Serena in mind--a cotton/alpaca blend that is soft and drapey with a gentle halo. This seamless and casual sweater has a surprise eyelet detail and gentle tapered shaping under the arm. Find your size and the pattern on Ravelry and pick six-nine skeins in your favorite color. You'll need size 3 & 4 circular needles.
And with spring around the corner, we are looking to cast on Ines, a sweet sleeveless top with subtle yet striking yoke details. You'll need 5 (5, 6) skeins of Serena and size #6 & 9 needles for finished sizes 38 (42, 46)". The pattern by the Manos Design Team is available free on ravelry.com.
