Be still my heart! I am still trying to decide which Noro blanket is my favorite, and this one is definitely in the running for first place. It reminds me of the Monet painting "Water Lillies".
If you love to knit Entrelac and haven't tried Noro yarn yet, this is YOUR project. If you've never knitted Entrelac before and have been wanting to try - you will be thrilled with how this stunning Noro Ito yarn magically transforms your knitting into a functional piece of art!
Everything but the needles are included in this heart-stoppingly beautiful kit:
- 4 balls of magnificent "Ito" yarn from Master Eisaku Noro
- Printed pattern to create a sized 45" x 48" throw
- Pattern difficulty: Experienced knitter
Your surroundings should make your heart sing and this blanket will do that every time you toss it gently over your lap. Feel the warmth of the 100% wool fiber, feast your eyes on its beauty and let the masterpiece YOU created lift your spirits.
