Fino is constructed with one long I-cord that is banded together by individually made “beads”... These “bead wraps” are made by placing beads with a crochet hook or Super Floss onto elongated stitches. There are endless possibilities for this technique. You can make one, two, five or twenty beads to wrap your I-cord with... that is totally up to you! Wait until you see how fun Fino is to make... especially if you invest in an I-cord maker!
