Noro Magazine X 3

Wow, there are some truly wonderful designs in the new Noro Magazine that was published earlier this month. I’m honoured to be part of such an inspiring collection with not just one design but three!

My Oversize Lace Tee uses a new Noro yarn called Karuta which is a chunky blend of 40% silk, 30% cotton and 30% wool. It’s worked in the round to the underarm, then extra stitches are cast on for the garter stitch sleeve edging,s and the front and back are worked flat.

The Reversible Cable Vest is a huge rectangle with slits for armholes. It can be worn multiple ways which I’ll share in a later post. The cable is an undulating wave pattern which holds visual interest on both the”right” and “wrong” sides and drapes nicely in Silk Garden.

The cover, of course, features the Bobble Hat. It uses two balls of Kureyon and I think it would be great in Silk Garden for a slouchier look.
