Using a Fino Mini-skein Set and a skein of Fino, color takes center center stage for these vintage-style motifs shown in both a generous cowl and wrap. One skein of Fino and one Mini-skein pack will make either of the pieces.
Both projects use six different squares, two large (L1 and L2) and four small (S1, S2, S3, and S4). The squares are worked in different color combinations which are shown in the color table for each square.
The squares are joined as you go using the main color for the final joining round. This last round is worked differently depending on how many sides of the current square are being joined to adjacent squares.
Both the cowl and the wrap have an assembly diagram showing the arrangement of the different units. Refer to the appropriate diagram when joining the squares.
These projects are reversible. The directions are written with the side facing you as you work named as the right side, but both items can be worn with the opposite side facing out as shown in the photographs.
