I've crocheted for many more years than I've knitted. I've also found Noro yarns to be incredibly beautiful. In theory, "Crochet Noro" should be a dream come true.

Well, dreams rarely do come true. "Crochet Noro" clocks in at 144 pages, including the index. As the title states, it contains 30 patterns. The issue comes is with the subtitle of "Dazzling Designs." The designs for the most aren't dazzling; they're fairly average. The 2 tunics might look OK on a rail-thin model, but they probably won't look so good on the rest of humanity. Same for the miniskirt. And, really, how many fingerless gloves/"wristers" do you need? Two sets. Scarves, cowls, capelets and shawls? Um, twelve. Hats? Four.

The hats are the one area where the designs look appealing. In fact, they're downright cute. The nesting bowl set is clever. The Granny Square Purse is pretty. Not *original* - you could find a similar pattern in any granny square book - but pretty because of the yarns used. The motif idea (e.g. the cover image) is used often, and not in any way that would be "dazzling" to anyone who has made a motif or ten. The Felted Tote is, well, a felted tote. The V-neck Pullover is an incentive to improve my knitting (and to try a Noro knitted pullover instead). The Flower Blossom Purse is retro and cute. And if you'd like to try a pattern with beads there are 2 to chose from.

I love Noro, and I crochet well, so the book was obligatory for me. The designs aren't "dazzling" by any means, and apart from a scarf, some hats, a purse and the nesting bowls there isn't much that appeals to me. The hats take best advantage of Noro's yarns and are quite attractive. The scarves are OK. The designs in the book are not complicated, and many of the items would be fairly unremarkable in a blander yarn. Overall a decent effort, but not dazzling. I don't regret buying it, but I'd hoped to be able to give it 5 stars.

I purchased the book just for the necklace design. The instructions are vague, and there is no demo photo of several important steps, and no customer service info. I wish there was a number I could call with questions.
After trying to work on the necklace three times, I found that the instruction was wrong -- there should be 68 beads, not 63 as indicated in the book.

This book is gorgeous to look at. 30 patterns using Noro's unusual yarns to their best advantage. Most crocheters I know who love Noro yarns, have also struggled with how to use them best for crochet.

There are simpler, almost guaranteed beautiful projects like the felted bag, or the granny cowl and yet there are the shawl patterns that emphasize the brilliant colors; and sweaters /tunic patterns with enough room for an experienced crocheter to tinker with them to make the item perfect for the wearer.

I intend to make several designs from this book; maybe not all with Noro yarns, but definitely inspired by them. That is how I see this book most of all, as an inspiration to make your own masterpiece.

Color: Crochet-Noro
Crocheters who are fans of Noro Yarns - or of Sixth & Spring's two prior Noro books, Knit Noro: 30 Designs in Living Color and Knit Noro: Accessories: 30 Colorful Little Knits - have been waiting for this book for a while. The concept is simple: 30 crochet patterns that are perfect matches for the color combinations found in Noro yarns.

The book is made up of patterns by 21 designers (including 8 by Kazekobo/Yoko Hatta and 2 each by Mary Jane Hall and Linda Permann).

There is a range of skill levels and project types included. All patterns are written in U.S. pattern abbreviations, and several also include charted stitch symbols. Here is a breakdown of the patterns in this book:

Skill level:
12 Easy
16 Intermediate
2 Advanced

Project type:
7 Garments (2 Cardigans, 1 Pullover, 1 Skirt, 2 Tunics)
7 Scarves/Cowls
5 Shawls/Capelets
4 Hats
3 Bags
2 Mitts/Wristers
2 Home Decor (1 Throw, 1 Nesting Bowl)
1 Necklace

Techniques:
8 Motif projects (5 assembled using join-as-you-go methods)
3 Beaded
1 Felted
1 Short Rows

Stitch Symbol Charts:
13 charted in pattern
3 charted in back of book

I had the opportunity to see a trunk show for the book at the December, 2012 meeting on the New York City Crochet Guild. I was looking forward to seeing the samples for Doris Chan's Bias Mini Skirt and Yoko Hatta's Flower Blossom Purse and Lacy Capelet. I wasn't disappointed.

Color: Flowers-Vol-1
Synopsis: Noro yarns are used to create nineteen handknit designs for summer and using Silk Garden, Kureyon, Taiyo, Chirimen and Furisode. The designs include sweaters and one crochet blanket. Most are cropped tops and do not require a large yardage to complete the project. Instructions look straight forward. Nicely photographed and the designs make good use of the Noro color pallettes and strong color changes.
Review: Glad I've added this Noro collection of designs by Jenny Watson to my library. I've noticed quite a few projects from the book (or catalogue) on [...] and the resulting wearable items are very nice. No problems noted in knitting instructions and execution of the design elements.
