We had so much fun last month exploring Noro yarns and patterns, so we were thrilled when Noro announced that they were extending the pattern giveaway through March 1st!
You can now receive the pattern of your choice free with any purchase of the relevant yarn, no matter how many skeins you purchase. But there’s more…we’ve added a whole slew of new patterns to the offer! Here are a few of our favorites to share with you today (for the full list visit our Special Offers page).
If it’s Noro Ito you’re interested in, we have some amazing options for our crocheters!
The #17 Big Granny Afghan by Christine Lipscomb is just what it sounds like, a large crocheted granny square. Let the gorgeous long color runs in Noro Ito do the work of adding mesmerizing rounds as you hook your way to the perfect size blanket - keep going until it’s the size your heart desires!
If you choose the #18 Granny Quilt Afghan by Christine Lipscomb, you’ll be crocheting triangles to create this modern take on a granny quilt. Once you’ve created enough triangles you’ll join them with a crochet slip stitch, creating the attractive ridges throughout. Picture yourself curled up with a cup of hot tea and this blanket!
If you purchase one or more skeins of Noro Kiri, we’ve added the following free patterns just for you.
If you’re looking for a decorative scarf #19 Buttonhole Scarf by Andrea Babb is the perfect fit. Andrea’s dramatic scarf makes use of the one-row buttonhole technique (a great way to learn a new skill!) on an understated background of stockinette stitch. Just pick a color that suits your mood and you’ll have a fancy new scarf to wear!
As the incomparable Brenda Dayne used to say, “If you’re cold, put on a sweater!” The #25 Textured Pullover (designed by Noro) will keep you cozy this winter. This oversized, relaxed pullover achieves its textured look through knit purl checkerboard, and a trick of the yarn; you’ll start each half at different points in the skein to create asymmetrical depth.
If you’re already dreaming of warmer days ahead, check out Noro Mirai and the lovely summery garments and accessories available for free this month.
If you’re still in the mood for sleeves, check out Susanna also by Jenny Watson. This V-neck pullover uses eyelet rows and stripey Mirai to create a lovely sweater perfect for spring’s cool temperatures!
We hope you’ll enjoy another month of bright, colorful Noro yarns to light up your dreary days! Share your project photos with us in our Facebook group or on Instagram using the hashtag #izzyknitslys.

In one of the knitting classes I’ve taken, I remember the instructor saying, “We often learn more from our failures than we do from our successes." Let's just say, I learned a lot from my second attempt at creating the ultimate dog sweater!
