Knit Noro

Vogue Knitting has a new book out called Knit Noro: 30 Designs in Living Color.  It is a beautiful book, especially if you (like me) have a fondness for that stripey goodness of Noro yarns. The projects make such nice use of the yarn.   Of course, I am not completely unbiased.  I have a design in this book: the Knit Kimono.

This cardigan is simple.  But I think that is what I like best about it.  There is very little shaping — it is almost entirely all rectangles, much like a real kimono.  The fabric is all garter stitch and stockinette stitch.  It works with the yarn, rather than competing with it.  There is only a single button closure.  Like I said, simple.

Hmmm…  Maybe I will have to go cast on one for me.

Coming attractions: sock designs for charity, a new sock club design, some old sock designs freshened up, and a new shawl pattern.  Not necessarily in that order.

    This is stunning. I think you should have one for yourself. I may need to cast on myself!
