Cardo Collection
The Cardo Collection designed by the Fairmount Fibers team celebrates the newest yarn from Manos del Uruguay: Cardo! Cardo is a crisp, resilient bulky-weight yarn made of 100% Corriedale wool in a 4-ply construction.

Hornero takes a simple stripe sequence and reverses it halfway up a hat and mittens. The dynamic color play that results is the focal point of the set; shaping is minimal.

Hat: 18½ (20, 21½)head circumference and about 8 (8, 8¼)tall with lower edge rolled
Hat shown measures 20”.

Mittens: 8 (9¼)hand circumference and 10 (10¾)long with lower edge rolled
Mittens shown measure 8in circumference.

Manos del Uruguay CARDO (100% Corriedale wool; approx. 109 yds/100 g): 2 sks each of A and B for a set of hat and mittens in all sizes.
Shown in D2560 Manchester (A) and D2020 Spirulina (B)

Note: One skein of each color is enough to make a single hat in any size, or a single pair of mittens in any size.

When working the stripe pattern, do not cut yarns when changing colors. Carry the unused color loosely up the wrong side of the work to where it is needed again.
