NORO Kureyon: New & Exciting!

New colorways in Noro Kureyon have arrived, and boy do we ever have some great new ideas of what to do with them! Noro Kureyon is a worsted weight single ply wool with intense drifting colors.
Each 50g ball contains 109 yards.
The new NORO book: Knit Blankets contains patterns for 25 classic afghans knit in NORO favorites. Many are knit in Kureyon and Silk Garden- two of NORO’s best that are interchangeable in most designs. We carry
both yarns. Take a look at these afghans below- all are in this new book.
Square in a Square Blanket
A nice sized 40 x 48″ throw. Very portable project as the squares are done individually.
Star Blanket
A large 50 x 55″ afghan that is made in strips. This will be an heirloom for sure! A stunner!
Water Lilies
Short rows & picked up sts form 20 sewn together squares. A 36 x 45″ throw that will turn heads.
Heart Blanket
A 51 x 56″ blanket made in Intarsia squares. Very portable, and great for multiple colorways on Kureyon.

Besides 25 new afghan designs- NORO Kureyon is so well supported by other patterns such as these:

An easy to knit hat that reverses the normal concept of working Fair Isle. The solid color (suggest Galway) does the Fair Isle work, NORO Kureyon makes the background. FREE Pattern.
I love this design! It combines a solid worsted such as Galway with the NORO Kureyon in a mosaic worked design. This design is NOT in the new NORO Book, but is a pattern available on Ravelry.

Some Kureyon Colors on sale!

To make room for the new colorways, we have had to remove a few. These closeout colors are now 20% off! Although there are only a couple of balls of each color available, we have loads of great one- ball project ideas! Take a look at just a few below. And these patterns are all FREE!
Kureyon Mitts
Just one ball of Kureyon needed. FREE Pattern.
1 ball headband
Less than one ball makes this FREE headband pattern- a Quick gift!
A classic headband design with a lot of flair! FREE Pattern for just one ball of Kureyon.
A FREE Pattern with lots of style. Knit this up with just one ball of NORO Kureyon.

This is a FREE Pattern for a great Fair Isle Pullover knit in a DK weight yarn such as DK Merino Superwash, or Tosh Sport.

Meow! What a cute topper. Knit it in any worsted- Encore, Comfort, Galway.
