It isn’t difficult to mention the word colour and not conjure up images of Noro yarns dancing in your head, these two just naturally go hand in hand in the knitting world. Now when the word lace is thrown into the mix, well…….. things just got a whole lot more interesting.
This collection of designs is a sweeping mix of lightweight shawls, hats, cowls, scarves, wrist warmers, cardigans, capelets and mittens guaranteed to light a fire under your needles and get you on your way with a new spring project. Be on the lookout for Noro Lace at your local yarn shop this month.
Anna Davis designed this Cropped Cardigan as a spring topper to pair nicely with a slim skirt or cotton capris. Punctuated with horizontal bands of openwork and a scalloped border deliciously detailed with clusters of bobbles, this beauty is knit in classic Silk Garden.
Irina Poludenko is a designer who continues to think outside the box, challenging herself in new directions. In her latest design, Mitered Top, two square medallions are constructed from the centre out, incorporating rivulets of openwork that playfully contrast with the changing spectrum. Knit in Silk Garden Sock.
Wei Wilkins creates geometric artistry with this stunning Square Shrug, worked in one piece from the center back. Knit in lightweight Taiyo Sock, a comfortable cotton blend introducing six new colourways for spring.
Sandi Prosser has a knack for elegant knitwear, and this Mock Neck Capelet is no exception. A visually spectacular piece knit seamlessly from the bottom up integrating rows of eyelet lace that resemble tiny pearls bobbing along in the waves. Knit this design in Silk Garden Sock, col #269 (shown above).
