Mentolat Scarf Kit Using Manos Silk Blend
In this clever scarf, a series of garter-stitch triangles build on each other to grand, geometric effect! The Mentolat Scarf, designed by Jocelyn Tunney for Manos del Uruguay, takes advantage of the relatively square-shaped garter stitch to set the diagonally knit triangles—each in a different color—at right angles to each other. The result is a graphic, seamless, zig-zagging bit of colorblocking!
Manos del Uruguay put together a number of colorways of long-time favorite Silk Blend—kitting each skein into a large, joyous interlocking hank! Each kit contains ten skeins of Silk Blend (Manos’ DK-weight blend of 70% merino wool and 30% silk) in six different, hand-dyed colors.
