“. . . will make knitters drool. Fans of Noro will adore this one, and those new to the yarn will want to get started ASAP.” —Booklist

Celebrate the 30th anniversary of Noro’s incomparable Kureyon yarn with this stunning collection of projects!

When it comes to color and quality few yarns compare to Noro's ultra-soft Kureyon (Japanese for "crayon"). It’s a joy to knit with, with luscious colorways that turn every project into a work of art. This stunning volume in the Knit Noro series commemorates the yarn’s 30-year milestone with 30 vibrant projects, from quick cowls and hats to more intricate cardigans and blankets. Create such gorgeous items as a showstopping shawl of neutrals accented with bright earth tones, a multidirectional cardigan that makes the most of Noro's color striping, a Picasso-esque modular blanket, and a star-motif capelet.
“Kureyon is the Japanese word for crayon, and it is perhaps Noro’s signature yarn line. It is notable for the way it patterns and stripes as it is worked and is highly prized by knitters. To celebrate the yarn’s thirtieth anniversary comes this handsome volume whose projects highlight the way the yarn subtly shifts in hue and tone. Among the patterns are sweaters, hats, shawls, cowls, and capes. For the home, there are blankets and pillows. The projects run the gamut in difficulty from a simple seed-stitch scarf to a long brick-pattern shawl with chevron stripes that uses double-wrapped stitches, elongated stitches, and yarn changes. Unlike in some knitting books, which don’t illustrate enough, patterns here often get four photographs. Throughout, it’s the full-size color photographs, along with smaller additions, that will make knitters drool. Fans of Noro will adore this one, and those new to the yarn will want to get started ASAP.” —Booklist
