Manos Fino Infinity Scarf Free Knitting Pattern

Fino is the newest yarn from our friends at Manos del Uruguay. It is a lovely silk/merino wool blend, just like the popular Manos Silk Blend, but spun at a finer gauge. The result is a light, lovely hand dyed yarn with soft color variation that provides beautiful depth to any stitch pattern.
