The new Berroco Noble is soft and luscious and chunky. It's a merino single ply with a little nylon for durability. We have such a lovely range of neutrals and a gorgeous deep red. (That's a neutral, right?) Maybe we will see more colors soon, but these are all so good!
The Noble pattern book has some nice stuff, including the pretty textured cowl up above, Coffeehouse and this interesting textured cowl in linen stitch, Damiano.
I just noticed that Berroco also has a nice free hat pattern using one ball of Noble. It's still chilly out there, friends. Get yourself some big yarn and knit some cozy stuff!
