Love, Love, Love this simple knit out of the beautiful Fino by Manos Del Uruguay a member of the World Fair Trade Organization. This yarn is an ultra soft 70% extrafine merino, 30% silk; with a hefty 490 yards per hank. The Rings of Rings Cowl by Lisa R. Myers is a soothing knit created in stockinette stitch. The piece is knit in the round and joined together at the end with a simple kitchener stitch. The cowl takes one hank of fino and one fino mini skein set. The effortless stitch pattern switching between colors to create rings shows off the beauty of the kettle dyed yarn giving the finished project so much color depth.
Fino is hand dyed in large kettles to create a marbleized, subtly striated effect that forms a rich palette of glorious colors. 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.
