With Manos del Uruguay’s superbulky Franca yarn, the Yésica Vest and Yésica Hat incorporate different stitches and design elements to show off the yarn’s thickness and colors. The Yésica Vest is a hi-lo garment, knitted bottom up with part in biased fabric and textured slipped stitches - a super fun and fast knitting project! The Yésica Hat is knitted sideways, with a beautiful sequence of slipped stitches.
