Onete Scarf by Fairmount Fibers Design Team is knit out of one of L & B’s favorite single ply fingering weight yarns, Fino. Elegant and refined, Fino by Manos Del Uruguay, combines the softness of merino wool and silk in a lightweight yarn that’s perfect for heirloom accessories or luxurious garments. Fino is hand dyed in large kettles to create a marbleized, subtly striated effect that forms a rich palette of glorious colors.
The Onete Scarf combines a garter stitch for the main body of the shawl with an elegant lattice lace border. The shawl design highlights the complex, subtle, tonal colors in each hank of yarn. Manos Del Uruguay is a non profit organization which assembles women in cooperatives scattered throughout the countryside of Uruguay. The aim of the organization is to bring economic and social opportunities to rural women. To take a look at the pattern just click here.

The Staggered Shawl pattern by Amy Gunderson is such a whimsical fun knit. This is a great intro to intarsia pattern and only takes 3 balls of Universal Yarns Bamboo Pop. Bamboo Pop is light and breezy the perfect yarn for summer projects.
It is a machine washable 50/50 cotton/bamboo blend with amazing drape and softness. The pattern is fun and definitely holds your interest by staggering the colors every few rows. The pattern begins in the top center and increases as you work on both sides and the center.
There are lots of awesome color combinations to choose from but we fell in love with the green, purple, and black the second we saw it! You can check out the pattern by clicking here.
