Taiyo by Noro


Taiyo is the Noro summer yarn we stock for an aran gauge (4-4.5 sts/inch on US 9) . It is 40% cotton, 30% silk, and 15% wool (just to give it some memory) and 15% nylon. It has a whopping 220yds/skein and actually has a soft hand. There is Taiyo Sock weight yarn also, that is great for summer shawls.

The new Knit Noro book (5/3/2011) features patterns for both the Patchwork Afghan and Baby Swirl Afghan shown below. The patchwork afghan shown below uses 17 sks. The baby Swirl afghan (check out our kit for a Swirl Shawl in merino, if you like this design) takes 6 sks and you can buy the book separately here.

The baby blanket to the far right is a no brainer knit....perfect for summer mindless uses 4 sks and measures 36 inches across (and obviously, it is round!) The pattern is sent free with the 4 sk purchase.

Yarn price per skein: $17.99/ 100 gm sk.
