The shape of color

October 14, 2014 1 min read

Noro is best known for its long repeats and striking color combinations. "Long repeats" means wide swaths of a single color that blends gently into the next. Typically that means stripes. But it can also mean diamonds if you're knitting in entrelac, which is a fun way to use Noro. Or it could mean triangles, as it does in this beautiful pattern Lynne found.

Short rows keep the yarn moving in different directions so that the colors stack and pool to make fun triangles of all different proportions. Worked in Silk Garden, this generous wrap is a perfect way to bring an outfit together and add little fall color into your wardrobe.

Come see all the new colors of Noro at the trunk show this week and next. Details on the calendar.
