  1. Tracy W. says:

    Since I don’t knit I would try to crochet #9 Short Row Colorback Top. I also love the shawl on the front cover.

  2. Tara Nutley says:

    It has to be #2. Warm and cozy for the winter.

  3. Kathie Abel says:

    I think the colorblock saddle shoulder top — it’s so basic in line, and the color gradation is so pretty. Would like to do this one in fall colors.

  4. Deb Adams says:

    I will definitely knit this sweater for a baby gift: 29-31 Baby Girl Cardigan, Hat And Toy. I love the way the body flares out from the waist.

  5. Cynthia says:

    I would have to say #22 the Mesh Banded Pullover….most exciting colors and textures.

  6. Deborah M. says:

    I love # 12 A-line tank. I get too hot for most sweaters, but this is perfect. There are a couple of others I like too but this is my favorite :)

    • Deborah M. says:

      I changed my mind, (woman’s perogative) ;) My absolute favorite is #16 the saddle shoulder colorblock top. Love those colors. Oh, I just can’t decide. I love them both :)

  7. Guida Cid. says:

    :( I’m from Portugal!

  8. Deb Adams says:

    I am guessing that: 14 – Batwing Colorblock Topper is Ann’s favorite!

    I’d do the baby girl cardigan, hat and toy for my little grand daughters :)

  10. Kelly C says:

    Oooh I like the #9 colorblock top!!

  11. Carol says:

    Would love to make the Multidirectional Cap Sleeve Top.It is the best “sweater”, but I also love the Scoop Neck Dress.

  12. AmyO says:

    The baby sweaters would be the first thing I would knit and then the shawl featured on the front. I have already purchased this magazine and so love it all!

  13. Karen Halstedt says:

    Since we have a new granddaughter on the way, I would like to make the baby girl sweater (29-31) and free yarn would help

  14. Susan Atlas says:

    I would love to make#29-31 for my newest granddaughter. She’s#3 child and a little knitting deprived as I’ve been ill.

  15. Betty W says:

    I love the textured shawl, which is not a sweater, I know, but I would love to make it.

  16. Gail says:

    I would happily knit the baby girl cardigan, hat and toy for my granddaughter.

  17. Betty W says:

    For the book drawing I think Ann’s favorite sweater would have to be the Mesh Banded Pullover. Why do I think that? Because it is my favorite!

  18. Gail says:

    I don’t know Ann but I would guess her favorite is the Lace Maxi Dress because it is gorgeous!

  19. Anne lynch says:

    I just love the cropped mesh cardi. And Ann would like the color block batwing topper. There is not enough time to make all the patters I love.

  20. Joanne says:

    Sweaters #12 & 13 caught my attention and the baby sweaters. I have the cover shawl three quarters finished.

  21. CarBaer says:

  25. Linda Knapp says:

    I would like to make the Boy Cardigan, Hat and Bear #32-34

  26. Linda Knapp says:

    And I think Ann’s favorite is the Patchwork #20

  27. It would have to be 32-34 and then 29-31. Such precious baby outfits.

  28. Nancy Massaro says:

    Batwing color block topper, I made a similar sweater and wear it all the time.

  29. Sarah says:

    I think Ann’s favorite is #26.

  38. Linda B says:

    I think Ann would like #17 the cropped mesh cardi. ;-)

  39. Dawn Mays says:

    I love the Batwing Colorblock Topper – Casual but sort of elegant at the same time

  40. Vicki B says:

    I would most likely make pattern 17- the cropped mesh cardi, and although not a sweater, I have to say the bias eyelet cowl is gorgeous!

  41. Diane Sonnenberg says:

    multi directional cap leeve

  42. Vicki B says:

    I am going to guess that Ann’s favorite pattern is 26- round yoke pullover.

  43. Kathie Green says:

    I just love the cropped mesh cardi, and I think it is the one Ann likes too. There is not enough time to make all the patterns I love!!!!

  44. Becky Nelson says:

    I think I would be making #29-31-the baby girl cardigan, hat, and toy before making anything for myself (my nieces and nephews are having babies now that I need to make gifts for the new arrivals).

  45. Claudia Hopkins says:

    The cropped mesh cardi to both questions. I would love to knit it and I thing it would be a favorite sweater.

  46. Nancy J Mower says:

    I like #06 the Semi Circle Shawl since I am into doing shawls right now. I like the lacy look and the shades of green shown are not bad either although I am a Purple person..

  47. Denise Barton says:

    My favorite is the Batwing Colorblock Topper (#14) , but my second favorite, and the one I’ll probably make (because it would be quick) is the multidirectional cap sleeve top (#15).

  48. Susan Benesch says:

    My favorite is trifle so I am picking this pattern to be Ann’s fav too! Trifle simply speaks out to me. Lovely collection and thank you very much. Hope that I win.

  49. Monica says:

    I really dig #21 the Trellis Lace Duster. AND I have a huge thing for shawls right now, so #05 Garter Lace Triangle Shawl makes me drool a lil bit.

    Um, I don’t know Ann, so I don’t know her tastes. I’m going to take a big ol’ guess and say her fave is #15 Multidirectional Cap sleeve Top.

  50. Karrie says:

    Love the baby boy cardigan, hat and teddy bear. I would start that project right away because I just had a baby boy. :)

  51. Wow! I want to make all of them! But I think I’d start with the A-line tank. :)

  52. I think the Mesh Banded Pullover is Ann’s favorite…but I don’t know how you could have a favorite from this collection. They are all fabulous!

  53. Debby Miller says:

    I would love to make #25 – Capelet! Love the colors chosen for this too!

  54. Judy Phillips says:

    Ohmygosh, it would be hard to choose, but I thing the short row color block top would be my choice. What a great collection! I really love the color work in all if these.

  55. Lynn says:

    Love the shawls and scarfs – but to pick a sweater – probably one of the baby sweaters for a gift, but for me – have to be one of the shawls!! Love the Garter Lace and Semi Circle shawls!

  56. Flor de Maria says:

    I believe sweater # 14 is a great one–i love the simplicity and modern lines. I love the use of so much color –especially in winter when we need it so much.

  57. Lis says:

    Ahh, I’m a sucker for books… so I hope Ann likes the Mesh Wrap Cardigan!

  58. Honey Moon says:

    I like number two the best the mesh wrap around, I pick that for Anns favorite too. The baby sweaters are also cute. would prefer yarn.

  59. Lacy K says:

    I love the 32-34 Baby Boy Cardigan – and I have the perfect baby boy in mind to make it for. :) I also really like the Bias Eyelet Cowl #19 – LOVE THE COLORS!

  60. Ann says:

    I like the Butterfly Sleeve Dress….it looks so pretty….and I can either knit or crochet. I think that is the “other” Ann’s choice too! Thank you!

  61. Jane says:

    I’m a sucker for baby stuff – love both the baby boy and baby girl sweater, hat and toy patterns – but do have a special place in my heart for the sheep with the baby girl pattern. : )

  62. Theresa says:

    I Love #26 – Round Yoke Pullover! I like the colors chosen for the piece in the photo. Very pretty.

  63. Barbara Williams says:

    I love the textured shawl. That will be my project for winter.

  64. Kim Barlow says:

    Personally, I’d love to crochet the @27 Cardigan.

    The choice for Ann was tougher, but I’ll go with the #22 pullover.

    I would LOVE to have this book!!

  65. Michele Chester says:

    So many to choose from, but the first on my list is #16 Saddle Shoulder Colorblock top. I love Taiyo!

    I love the Baby Girl #29-31 Cardigan—it would be really cute on my little grand daughter!

    I think Ann likes #22 the Mesh Banded Pullover! I sure do!

  68. Lee Schery says:

    I love, love, love to make baby knits so I would pick the Baby Sweaters and if I finished those before another baby came along I’d make the shawl on the cover for me!!

  69. Patricia Mortrud says:

    I would make # 16. Love the square neckline and the short sleeves.

  70. Malinda says:

    I love both the Baby Girl and the Baby Boy sweaters and since I have a set of twins to knit for either would be perfect!

  71. Ed says:

    inwould make 17 cropped mesh cardi. I love cardigans because they are so practical. I don’t wear any other kinds of sweaters. I like this pattern a lot because of the sleeves, made in wool it will be just warm enough.

  72. Mindy Weaver says:

    I am sitting here looking at the magazine which I do frequently as I like many of the patterns in this issue and would like to make about 3-4 of them at some point. And I absolutely love NORO yarn.

    I would most likely make the sweater on page 4, no. 15 the Irina Poludnenko, the Multidirectional Cap Sleeve Top or the one on page 46, no 14 the BatWing Colorblock Topper. Both are very functional looking.

    As for Anne, since I don’t know her, I will guess that she likes the Multidirectional Cap Sleeve Top. Hope that is correct. And, if I happen to win…..I would love the yarn.

  73. Suzy says:

    Definitely 29-31 the baby girl set! My daughter and hubby are adopting and I feel it will be a girl! So that’s the one I would do!

  74. Cynthia Brooks says:

    The Noro sweater I like the best is #15 the Multidirectional Cap Sleeve Top.

  75. Cathy Durbin says:

    Love the Noro brand yarns. They have such beautiful colorways I’d have a hard time figuring out which pattern to do first.

  76. Cindy Moore says:

    the round neck pull-over, it is CRAZY! (for ann’s favorite.)

  77. Martina says:

    The two sweaters that my daughter may be getting are #9, the Short Row Colorblock Top and #13, the Sleeveless Colorblock Hoodie. I also have post its all over the magazine, especially on the shawl patterns. I LOVE the Noro magazine!
    As for Ann’s favorite, I have no idea, so I’ll just guess #11, the Hourglass Top. It’s so fashionable and makes such good use of Noro yarn.

  78. Marie S says:

    Love # 19, the cowl — so unusual. I also love the baby boy’s sweater. The blue is soft and the look is

  79. Mary says:

    I have made so many Noro sweaters and become so accustomed to the very unique colorways that I find it difficult to use any other yarn. I believe that says I am a Noro addict. Love that y

    I love Noro Yarn. I have made so many sweaters of the various styles that, Becoming accustomed to the unique color ways, I have become a Noro addict.

    I would have a blast making the baby boy and baby girl sweater set. It would be so much fun watching the Noro yarn colors play out. I have friends that are having babies and maybe I will have a grandchild in the near future.

  84. Rhonda says:

    Oh my goodness I love # 21 – Trellis Lace Duster! I would make that in a minute! I think that would be Ann’s favorite. Getting yarn is always great but the book would last forever. I would LOVE to win the pattern book. (don’t get me wrong yarn is great also:-)

  85. Sharon Erny says:

    I like the crocheted v-neck cardigan.

  86. Elizabeth Crecelius says:

    I absolutely LOVE number 14-Batwing Colorblock topper!!!

    Ann’s choice might be the cover shawl….it is lovely.

  134. Elissa Macklin says:

    Pattern 16,Saddle Shoulder Colorblock Top – I love the interesting way the colorways are used.

  135. mz says:

    My favorite has to be #17 cropped mesh cardi. I’m making another cropped top right now. I have a few jackets of this style… Don’t know why, I guess I like it in general.

  136. Elisabeth says:

    I would like to make number ten.

  137. MaryAnn Byrne says:

    OMG…well, I love the dress with the fluttery sleeves, the batwing color block topper, the trellis lace duster, the cropped mesh cardi. wow so many of them. I just love Noro yarn and the colors. I could make one of each for myself or my daughter, nieces, sister in laws. Yummy sweaters!

  150. natalie dotson says:

    Pattern 13 sleeveless colorblock hoodie, although basic makes a huge impression. Very pretty. I also like the lace maxi dress #3 for inspiration of a skirt. I think it is a little too lacy up top and too much for an overall dress, but the pattern is pretty.

  151. Amanda B says:

    #11 Hourglass Top — it was hard to pick just one!!!

  152. Sandi Hudson says:

    Has to be #1 Scoop Neck Dress. Such pretty colors and fitted extremely well. The style is flattering to most figures.

  153. Sherry says:

    I love the little girls’ sweater, but I definitely want to make the shawl. A close friend is getting married and she requested a colorful wrap as a gift. It would be perfect. I’m a fiber addict, but I’ve never knit with Noro…. I’d love a chance to do so!

  154. Cheryl says:

    For both guesses Trellis lace Duster I would def make it and see no reason it wouldn’t be the favorite :)

  230. Eileen Paul says:

  260. Patty says:

    I would probably knit the #17 Cropped Mesh Cardi for my daughter, if I were to knit a sweater. Personally, I prefer shawls, and I like the #07 Lace Panel Shawl.

  261. Carol says:

    Tough decisions… my choice: multi-directional cap sleeve top. Ann’s choice: short row colorblock top.

  277. Helen says:

    Pattern 16 – Saddle Shoulder Colorblock Top is my favorite. The colors are beautiful and bright.

    I’m guessing Ann’s favorite to be Pattern 15 – Multidirectional Cap Sleeve Top, because I think she prefers knitting over crochet and it reminds of the Billy Sweater that she knit.

    It’s too difficult for me to choose between yarn or book. I’d be happy with anything Noro.

  278. Bonnie Lincicome says:

    I would have knitted #15 in two days and would have also. :)
