Noro yarns are famous for their vibrant and fantastic colorways. They might not be the softest yarns you ever knit with; but they are gorgeously dyed. Knitting in simple stockinette is enough to guarantee an eye catching outcome. However, effective design takes Noro’s beauty to another level…and that is what Noro books are popular for.
The brand new book titled “Noro Accessories” is due to be released this month. It contains 30 colorful designs including one of mine, a long and bobbly scarf.

My inspiration behind this design was to use simple knit and purl in a way to achieve a bold design and nice texture. The bobbles create the texture, eyelets lighten up the fabric while softening the geometric pattern and the narrower ribbing makes the bottom borders pop. All that said, the scarf is easier to knit that it might appear to be. It is knitted in two parts that are joined in the middle. The yarn is Noro Kureyon (100% woo) in worsted weight which makes for a faster paced project. It comes in many fabulous colorways. If you are in mood to try something a bit different this season- go ahead and knit up the Eyelet Bobble Scarf. It would dress up any old coat and would definitely be noticed!
If you like this design, make sure you give it your heart on Ravelry, too.
