Fino Mini-Skein Collection, Spring 2022

The 2022 Fino Mini-Skein Collection is a collection of free accessory patterns, each of which highlight a different Fino Mini-Skein Kit. A Fino Mini-Skein Kit is a set of five 20g mini-skeins - a fun way to play with five different colors! Each pattern in this collection is named after the particular kit used - see all of our kits here!


The Zelda Cowl takes marled stripes up a notch with a simple bias structure. The stripe sequence plays marled stripes against solid ones for a salt-and-pepper contrast.
