Making the Most of Manos del Uruguay Fino Minis

Category: Featured Projects

Mini skeins continue to captivate yarn fans as a way to introduce a pop of color into a project, or as a way to sample a new-to-you yarn. Each Manos del Uruguay Fino Mini Skein set includes five 20-gram skeins. In this blog post, we are going to spotlight projects that make the most of each bundle.

Your first stop for inspiration should be the Fairmount Fibers Free Patterns page. Scarves, shawls, and cowl patterns are ready to download. Some patterns call for one mini skein set while others are used in conjunction with a full-sized skein of Fino.

We were especially impressed with luarn’s Studio Wall Swatches project that uses the Eleanor set and jostrong’s 5 Color Cashmere Cowl project that uses the Beatrix set.
