Knit Noro Accessories Price: $24.95
Knit Noro Price: 24.95 In addition to the projects listed below (Scroll down for photos below for a couple of my favorite patterns from the book), there are several hats, several vests, a tunic, a hooded vest, socks, a swing sweater, a faux fair isle cardigan knit using 2 colors of sock yarn, an entrelac scarf, a cowl, a couple of other scarves....the list goes on ...
This Patchwork Afghan shown first is knit using 11 balls of Taiyo. Purchase 11 balls of a color here and I'll send the book for FREE. This is a soft cotton blend yarn and its all garter stitch at 4.5sts/inch.
Many of you will recognize this swirl stitch pattern from the merino Swirl Shalw kits I sell, but here it is used for a baby afghan. Knit in Taiyo, but only takes 6 balls, so will be a smaller undertaking than the afghan above!
This pattern, knit using 3 balls of Kureyon (tho' you could certainly substitute Silk Garden) is a variation of the Jarod Flood design alternating 2 colors of Silk Garden (his is stripes whereas this one features a chevron stitch).
The gloves here are knit using 1 sk each of 2 different colors of Silk Garden sock yarn. I may pack this project for the plane ride to Sweden next week. This hat used 2 sks of Kureyon and features earflaps and a tie.
