Noro Magazine Issue 4

Everything is coming up Noro lately! Eisaku Noro was featured on a TV show last week. The new Knit Noro 1-2-3 Skeins book is already a best seller. And the new issue of Noro Knitting Magazine is taking yarn stores by storm!

Noro coverThe Spring/Summer 2014 issue of Noro Knitting Magazine was due out last week, but local yarn stores made it available as soon as they started receiving it last month.

And can you blame them? It’s another stunning issue!

This issue has 32 patterns, four of which are crocheted.

Flower scarfThis Flower Lace Scarf by Jacqueline van Dillen is one of the crochet patterns.

I love the combination of the little flower motifs with the mesh blocks. It has interesting texture to go with the interesting Noro Taiyo Lace colors. All those factors combine for a fun project to crochet and wear.

Oak Leaf socksThis issue is chock full of great accessory patterns. The Oak Leaf Lace Socks Margie Mitchell are one of four sock patterns included.

Socks, and accessories in general, are great summer knitting projects since they are so small and portable. This pattern looks like it will be easy to memorize.

The Oak Leaf Lace Socks are knit using the ever-popular Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn.

Garter Stitch jacketThe Garter Stitch Jacket by Ann Klimpert has been very popular on Ravelry.

I can understand why. Look at those wonderful waves of color undulating over the jacket.

This garment is marked Intermediate skill level and is sized for Small/Medium (Large/X-Large). It uses a combination of charcoal color Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran yarn and two shades of Noro Silk Garden.

Dragon Scale capeThe Dragonscale and Cable Capelet by Robin Melanson is garnering attention.

Doesn’t it look cozy? It is knit using three hanks of Noro Shiraito yarn, a delicious cashmere, angora, wool blend. I love the interesting cables up the side.

I saw on Facebook the other day that The Naked Sheep Yarn Store in Staten Island, NY is planing a knit along for this pattern. Contact the store for details.

As usual, I’ve only scratched the surface of the many beautiful patterns in this issue.

You can preview the rest of the issue on our main website, as well as find a store near you that stocks the Noro brand.

Find the issue on Ravelry to add patterns to your favorites and queue.

If you live in the USA or Canada, you’ll want to visit the Noro Knitting Magazine website before July 31, 2014 to enter the giveaway. There is a chance to win enough Taiyo yarn to make the cowl on the cover as well as a copy of the new Knit Noro 1-2-3 Skeins hardcover book!
