Hem to Hem by L & B Yarn Co. can be worn as a caplet or you can bunch it up around the back of your neck to create a large textured cowl. This simple pattern is knit in the round in stockinette stitch and then taking the edges of the fabric and folding back a margin of the cloth you knit them together forming large hems that appear as folds.
This garment takes 3 skeins of Noro Taiyo a heavy worsted weight cotton blend. Noro was founded over forty years ago by Eisaku Noro. The handcrafting yarns in particular are well known for their vivid colors and combinations of diverse fiber types.
Noro yarns are unique in the yarn industry by having lengthier spans of color in the runs, causing thick striping patterns, as well as being partially spun by hand instead of being produced completely by machines. To take a look at the pattern by L & B Yarn Co. just click here.
I love this drapey drop stitch version of our original paper poncho. The dropped stitches add more texture and interest to this throw over your favorite top and go knit!
We knit this one out of 2 hanks of Noro Tennen. This single ply worsted weight yarn is a soft blend of wool, silk, and alpaca. Subtle, tonal color shifts highlight the blend of natural fibers.
This pattern by L & B Yarn Co. is great for knitters at any level, there are only a few different stitches you need to know and with minimal seaming it knits up quickly. L & B has 9 colors of Tennen to choose from including Alpine, Ivory, Merlot, Wood, Silverstone, Flamingo, Oasis, Stone, and Cappuccino. To take a look at the pattern just click here. Pattern is free with purchase of this project in a yarn box!
This Noro Top by Jenny Watson is knit out of Kureyon Air is a great addition to your fall wardrobe. It knits up fast in this brightly colored bulky weight wool. The top is knit flat in two pieces with a simple seam on the sides and at the top of the shoulder. If you don’t love to seam it can be seamed up in less than 30 minutes, hooray! The pattern is written for 5 different sizes from X-Small to X-Large (photographed in small).
There is also an optional polo neck that can be knitted if you want something even more cozy. Throw this top on over something lightweight to enjoy cooler weather without getting to hot or layer it with something thicker.
Simple shaping creates a flattering waistline with an elongated back. You can decide how much seaming you want under the arm for a more closed or open look. This pattern by Jenny Watson is included in L & B’s Yarn Box, just click here to take a look!
