Finally Fino Pattern Release!

Soooooo... last week I got an email asking me if I was going to ever release Fino Necklace as an individual pattern. I had designed Fino as the last kit in a club I did with Patternworks in 2013, and just never got around to reformatting and releasing the pattern. Well, Marie did me a favor, because when her e-mail came I was in the mood to make something with rainbows! See?
With in a half an hour I had whipped up a long i-cord in some Lemonade Shop Mighty Sock I had leftover from swatching for Elixir (on my nifty I-cord machine). I went stash diving for rainbow colored sparkly beads.... and a new version of Fino was born!
It was a grey day.... and I clearly needed some rainbow therapy!
The sun came out this morning... and we got some great shots of my new necklace!


And I've decided to give my Rainbow Fino to one of you!
(I'm sure one of you is in the mood for a little rainbow therapy too!)

Just leave a comment below by 12pm (EST) on Feb 27th. I will randomly choose a winner and announce them in next week's post! (Ready for a Mystery Knit-A-Long anyone???)

If you want to make your own Fino (and of course I think you should, they are SO satisfying to make) the updated pattern is now available here.
