Kureyon Air

Sometimes we all need a little calm and comforting knitting. If you find yourself in need of some distraction these days, might I suggest a bright chunky blanket on big needles?
The latest Noro magazine features the Kureyon Air in these three big, cozy blankets. Each one requires six skeins of Air and a US15 needle. The stitch patterns are just enough to keep your mind engaged but not at all difficult.

We have this lovely Quick Slip Cowl sample in the shop to show off this lovely yarn. You'll need just one skein of Air for this, and the fabric looks great on both sides.
Sally has already been cranking on her bulky version of the Noromania Blanket (US17 with 71 stitches). Choose six skeins in two colorways, and take comfort in your knitting.
