Ito by Noro

This new 100% wool yarn by Noro features a whopping 200 gms and 437 yards in a ball.

They are Noro's response to all the Shawl Balls out there!

Recommended knit at 4.5 - 5 sts/in on US 8 - 10, we're knitting the cowl shown on the front cover on a 10.5 and am getting 4 sts/inch. This is color 4.

Each ball features a 45 color sequence. So unlike the Kureyon and Silk Garden that each have 8-10 colors, these big balls provide more color changes, perfect for that "statement" accessory.

The cowl shown featured on the cover of the latest Noro Magazine uses just 1 skein and the pattern is free with the yarn purchase! I'm not sure whether it is more a function of my limited photographic skills or the fact that the mannequin the store model is shown on doesn't have a neck that the photo far right is hard to appreciate - but the finished cowl has a lovely fit around the neck and a cowl that drapes really nicely.


Price Per Giant Ball: $39.99
