Make It Monday!
Did you know there are over 50,000 projects that use Noro Silk Garden on Ravelry? That seems like an amazing number, but when I think about how many projects I’ve created over the years with it, I get it! If you haven’t used it before, it’s a delightful, luxurious blend of silk, mohair, and wool that comes in self-striping colorways. The different fibers in the yarn take the dye differently, resulting in a dimensional, somewhat tweedy fabric. The mohair makes a slight halo and gives it a softer hand, while the silk makes it glow.
We just received the six gorgeous new colors for fall 2020, seen in the picture below. There is a sweater quantity of each color available, in addition to some bestsellers we already have in stock here at the Garden. Click on the image to see more details and to purchase Silk Garden for your next project (or just to enhance your stash… it makes a lovely pet skein).
And now for some pattern inspiration… these are the top 5 most popular projects (for knit AND crochet) on Ravelry for Silk Garden. I’ve knit all 5 at one point or another! How many have YOU made??
