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. Knitters will also need a size 5 mm (US 8) 24″ or longer circular knitting needle. Photographed in Filigree.
