Knit Noro: Accessories 2

I have another book to review:

BookCover 032617 204x240 Knit Noro: Accessories 2

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.

ArtDeco032617 209x240 Knit Noro: Accessories 2

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:

CorrugatedBasketweave032617 209x240 Knit Noro: Accessories 2

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:

SlantedPoncho032617 205x240 Knit Noro: Accessories 2

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.

WavyEyelet032617 205x240 Knit Noro: Accessories 2

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.
