Over & Over Infinity Loop Using Manos Alegria
We discovered this stitch pattern in a French knitting compendium. Reminiscent of tiny, crocheted granny square clusters, it’s full of ‘yarn overs’ and ‘lift overs’—so we dubbed it ‘Over & Over!’ Plus, it’s so fun, we love knitting it over and over again.
Ergo—another brilliant version, this time in Alegria, a fun, happy fingering-weight yarn from Manos del Uruguay. It’s a blend of superwash merino and sturdy polyamide, which means it’s easy to care for, wonderfully resilient, and (best of all) super soft. And you have a dazzling array vibrant variegated colorways (we love how this stitch pattern interrupts the tendency of variegated yarn to ‘pool’)—to play with!
