By purchasing yarn from String Theory, you’re lifting up a number of small and female-owned businesses. We help women in Rwanda, who survived the genocide, educate a new generation. We help women in Uruguay find meaningful work without leaving their rural homes. We help a family in New Hampshire maintain a mill, a tradition spanning hundreds of years. We help restore the Patagonia Grasslands by encouraging sustainable farming.Every yarn we stock makes a positive impact.
This pattern was designed for String Theory Yarn Co for the Chicago Yarn Crawl 2022 and will be available for free until August 7, 2022.
Every year during the Yarn Crawl, we highlight a yarn company that exemplifies who we are and what we believe at String Theory. This year, we want you to take a closer look at Manos del Uruguay, a fair trade organization that is more than 50 years old.
*"40 years don't seem like much, but it was a really different time then. Women didn’t have their own incomes, the husband was the one working. This job took the women out of their homes and made them function individually. We grew up and found aptitudes we hadn’t imagined we had. **It was a revolution.**”*
– Elisabeth Sosa, artisan and former President of Manos board.
These mitts are worked with two strands throughout. They start and end with two strands of Fino. The middle is done with a strand of Fino and a strand of Cabrito.
The pattern was written for two sizes but is easily adapted. Notes for making a bigger size are included in the pattern.
