The sheer beauty of Noro is that each ball or hank of the exquisite multi-coloured yarn is individually dyed to produce a unique palette of subtle shadings and vivid hues. Because of the colourful nature of the yarns knitting with them is always exciting, as you do not know how and when the colours run into each other. Each knitter creates a truly unique garment every time she knits.

Jane Ellison’s new book features a collection of 30 glorious designs, knit in Noro yarns. The book is divided into six basic silhouettes, each of which is modified to create four original garments and a few accessories. The result? Simple, figure-flattering silhouettes teamed with bright vibrant colours in designs that you’ll turn to time and time again.

From a relaxed Striped Tunic and a Chevron-sleeve Cardi to a Ribbed V-neck Pullover and a Lace Cover-up Wrap, each pattern is accompanied by lush photography, clear instructions and a chart indicating how the designer has modified the original pattern.
