Great Knits for Noro

Posted on Apr 14, 2011 in Free Patterns, Patterns

You may be familiar with Jared Flood’s Noro Striped Scarf. There are over 9100 projects for it on Ravelry. The simple 1×1 ribbing in two shades of self-striping Silk Garden make it simple to knit and an endless delight of interplaying colors.

Designer SpillyJane has just come out with another simple, free pattern for Noro, Kureyon this time, but you can use any of the Noro yarns for it, the Handsome Scarf. Her pattern breaks up the stripes somewhat using a few slipped stitches resulting in a colorful, plush fabric.

Kay Gardiner, of Mason-Dixon Knitting, is raising funds for Mercy Corps with her stunning Mitered Crosses Blanket — for Japan.

These miters are addictive and incredibly easy to knit, making use again of the wonderful colors of Silk Garden.
