Since the giveaway of the day is books about Noro, and a few people have commented thay haven’t seen or used the yarn before, I thought I would share one of my longstanding works in progress that happens to be made in this yarn.
The Spoked Cardigan by Carol Feller was featured on the cover of Interweave Knits Weekend in 2011, and I immediately fell for it. It’s one of those patterns that really needs to be worked in the original yarn because the color changes are what make the design work.
It’s knit in Noro Kureyon, and I picked color 277, full of blues and purples with a splash of red. It’s a lovely and fun knit, built on short rows that shape the yoke. It drives me crazy that I never finished this, because it would be great to wear in the fall, and because I’m not 100 percent sure where in the pattern I stopped knitting, but I love it and I know I’ll finish it. Someday.
