There is no better way to pay a compliment to a brilliant yarn maker than by designing wearable works of art that show off the natural beauty of his yarn.  In this latest pattern booklet, European designer, Claudia Wersing, tips her hat to Eisaku Noro, the innovative creator behind one of the world’s most popular yarn brands with her cutting edge fashion sense overflowing into an unexpected collection of handknit pullovers, cardigans and accessories.
