New book: Noro Kureyon—The 30th Anniversary Collection

Did you know that 2018 is the 30th anniversary of Mr. Noro creating Kureyon yarn?

Well, if you didn’t before you probably guessed from the title of this blog post!


A hardcover book has been published to celebrate this wonderful yarn. The official publication date is April 18, but we already have it in the warehouse so you’ll start seeing it in yarn shops soon.

Noro Kureyon: the 30th Anniversary Collection” features 30 beautiful patterns all KNIT using Kureyon yarn. (Wow, could a sentence get more redundant?)

Here are a few of my favorite patterns from the book.


I really like the combination of stripes and squares in the “Brick Lane” shawl designed by Wei Wilkins. The generous size for wrapping up is great, too!

It is knit using three colors of Kureyon yarn.

The “Refined Stripes Cardigan” by Jacqueline van Dillen is very eye catching. It looks like it would be fun to knit because of the interesting construction.

The black and red shading of Kureyon color 388 is right up my alley, too.

There is something delightful about the “Starshawl” by Unjung Yun. Maybe it is the contrast between the cream colored Kureyon 211 and the blues of color 359. Or maybe it is all the shapes and textures, but I find it really eye catching.

The “Tokyo Pullover” by Aviva Susser caught my eye because of the vertical stripes. Of course that means it is knit cuff-to-cuff, which is a nice change of pace from the normal bottom up construction method for sweaters.

I also really like those neat cuffs.

As I said, there are 30 beautiful patterns in the book ranging from sweaters to accessories. I’m sure as the weather changes other patterns will catch my eye!

You can also preview the book on Ravelry, where you can see construction notes and sizing information.
