Flared Garter Shawl - I love the striping, short rows that make it flare, and fringe. This is such a fun knit, and it would be so comfy to wear.
Garter and Lace Diamond Shawl - It's amazing to see what Noro's self-striping yarns can do to a simple pattern.
Brickstitch Scarf - I have a weakness for green, so perhaps that accounts for some of my obsession with this scarf, but the pattern is also great. I love a good slip-stitch pattern that creates layers of color.
Twice-Mitered Cowl - This is such a clever project! You work the cowl flat, mitering two corners, and then you seem the short ends together. This is another time when Noro's self-striping really takes it home.
Art Deco Wrap - This would be so much fun. You knit a piece in garter, bind off, pick up stitches, knit more garter—sometimes in a different color. I love a good modular knit. They're so much fun to see them grow and grow. Plus, how the final pattern of this one is just stunning.
Chevron Short-Row Wrap - Talk about a showstopper. Wow! I might be tempted to knit this into a blanket. I just want to wrap myself up in this and never come out.
There is a broad selection of accessories designs, including:
9 shawls, ponchos, capes, and capelets,
7 scarves and cowls,
6 mittens, gloves, and fingerless mitts,
1 pair of socks, and
1 pair of boot cuffs.
There is also a range of pattern skill levels, including:
12 intermediate, and
1 experienced pattern.
Knit Noro Accessories 2: 30 More Colorful Little Knits includes patterns by 24 designers. You can see all the designs on the Ravelry source page for the book. My favorite designs are the Twice-Mitered Cowl by Theresa Schabes, the Zippered Capelet by Mari Lynn Patrick, the Tuck Stitch Scarf by Charles Voth, the Peruvian Chullo Hat by Matthew Schrank, and the Slanted Poncho by Sandi Prosser.
After the patterns, there is a Helpful Information section, which includes pattern abbreviations, skill levels, a knitting needle size comparison chart (U.S. and metric), information about gauge, a glossary of special stitches, and three written and illustrated technique instructions (for the Kitchener stitch, I-Cord, and provision cast-on). The book closes with a detailed index and list of Noro yarn distributors in the United States and Europe.
As with other books by Sixth&Spring, the photos are vibrant and well styled. The photographic eye candy definitely inspired me to pick up my needles. The colors of the Noro yarns are richly portrayed. The book has a clean graphic design that makes it easy to read, though I do think the font size for the patterns could have been a bit larger. The patterns are clearly written. As a hardcover, it would lay flat so you can knit and follow along with the pattern. Although there is a range of pattern skill levels in the book, because it doesn’t include any basic knitting tutorials, I would recommend it for advanced beginners or intermediate knitters who enjoy making accessories for women. (Yes, there are some unisex designs and patterns for men in this book, but probably not enough to satisfy someone looking for accessories for men.) And, of course, if you love Noro yarn, or fall in love with one of the many beautiful patterns in this book, then it would be even more enjoyable.
