Knit Noro: Accessories 2

I have another book to review:

This is Knit Noro: Accessories 2: 30 More Colorful Little Knits by Sixth&Spring Books. As you might have surmised from the title, it has 30 patterns for various accessory items: Hats, wraps, cowls, gloves, and socks.All worked in glorious Noro yarns.

You can take a look at the projects on Ravelry, here.

In picking out my favorite projects from the collection I am trying hard not to be influenced by my color preferences. Here goes.

This is the Art Deco Wrap by Cheryl Murray. It is worked in Noro Silk Garden Sock and Silk Garden Sock Solo — fingering weight yarns. This is a modular knit, worked entirely in garter stitch. It reminds me very much of a project I finished not too long ago: Welcome Back Garter. Totally different look, but same technque: knit modularly in garter stitch. That was a very fun andsatisfying project and I anticipate that the Art Deco Wrap would be just as fun!

And this is another project in my favorite colors — can’t get away from thsoe blues and greens:

Corrugated Basketweave Hat by Michelle Porter, also knit from Noro Silk Garden Sock and Silk Garden Sock Solo. I love the subtle color changes achieved here!

Okay, branching out a bit in colors now:

Slanted Poncho by Sandi Prossner is knit from sportweight Noro Taiyo 4-ply, a self striping yarn. This poncho, which is knit in stripes that are joined as they are worked, is a good showcase for Noro self-striping yarn.

Lisa Craig’s Wavy Eyelet Cowl is knit from aran weight Noro Silk Garden (and I imagine you could use Noro Kureyon as well). More fun with self-striping that would work up pretty quickly!

Those are just a few of the projects — there are many more in a range of delightful Noro yarns.
