The Bernadette Hat and Mitts add marled stripes to ultra-simple knitting for a vibrant result! One skein of Main Color plus one mini-skein kit makes the full set. These pieces are double stranded (2 strands of yarn knitted at once) to create the marled effect with ease which also thickens the yarn to a sport weight.
The 2022 Fino Mini-Skein Collection is a collection of free accessory patterns, each of which highlight a different Fino Mini-Skein Kit. A Fino Mini-Skein Kit is a set of five 20g mini-skeins - a fun way to play with five different colors! Each pattern in this collection is named after the particular kit used.
