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!

Cumulo by L & B Yarn Co. is a fast crochet cowl using Mirasol Ushya. The bubble stitch used to create the large cloud like puffs are simple to make. Combining a large hook (size s) and bulky weight yarn the bubbles are made by elongating yarn overs into the same stitch multiple times. The cowl sits tall up around your face and neck keeping you nice and cosy. Ushya by Mirasol is a bulky merino with a touch of nylon. This yarn is absolutely gorgeous, the ultra soft chain knit construction provides even more unique texture for this finished cowl. L & B Yarn Co. designed the cowl to incorporate colorblocking a huge trend in both fashion and design. Color blocking simply means that you pair two or three totally different colors together to make a bold statement.
Remember that by purchasing the Mirasol Yarn Collection you are supporting the shepherds and their families ensuring the continuation of this tradition. A portion of every purchase goes directly to the funding of a centre in the remote area of Munani in the region of Puno. To take a look at this pattern just click here.
The Self Fringing Shawl by L & B Yarn Co. knit out of Noro Kiso is a true work of art. A vivid marled yarn, Kiso is a lovely blend of wool, alpaca, and silk. The shawl is worked from one side to the other increasing to the middle and decreasing back down to the other end. The pattern is easy to memorize and this project can be worked up in just a couple of days.
I love fringe but I don’t necessarily like adding fringe at the end of the project. The finishing of this shawl is so much fun! When you finish knitting you unravel the fringe without having to cut dozens upon dozens of pieces and then attaching.
When you unravel the fringe it is wrinkled from being knitted. We machine washed the shawl by itself on the gentle cycle in cold water and when I pulled the piece out the fringe had twisted on itself!! What an awesome surprise. This just added more wow to the finished piece. To take a look at the pattern just click here.
