Pulling inspiration from a modern earth-tone palette, this Spring collection from Elizabeth Smith uses clean, simple lines and floral eyelet details to create light, transitional layers that are as easy to knit as they are to wear. Top-down or bottom-up, garment or accessory, Elizabeth’s thoughtfully crafted collection for Manos del Uruguay is sure to have something that will please!
Amaryllis combines classic top-down, seamless construction with a flattering “wear with anything” A-line silhouette, which drapes perfectly with the Serena yarn. Easy eyelet details adorn the hem, evoking a floral, springtime vibe. Stitches are picked up along each front edge and neck back and worked in garter stitch to create the buttonless front bands that provide a nice frame for the piece as well as some structure.
The marled effect created by holding 2 strands of Serena in different colors together creates a beautiful, speckled fabric that not only adds visual interest but also provides an opportunity to play with different color combinations to create your own unique look.
