Noro Kanzashi is a wonderfully nubby, bulky weight yarn. It gets its bouclé texture from fiber woven through the main thread.
As with all of Noro's trademark, self-striping yarns, Kanzashi comes in an array of stunning colorways, from subtlely chic (Kani) to rainbow bright (Saiki).
Kanzashi is Noro's newest year and is featured in several patterns in the Fall/Winter 2019 issue of Noro Magazine. Click the link to see more!Additional colorways available by request.

Upside down, inside out, doesn’t matter which way you wear designer Ariane Gallizzi’s Amstel Shrug, it’s always right. The cables are reversible! The shrug is knit bottom up (or top down) and seamed at the armholes.
The center cable symbolizes the river Amstel, which gave the medieval city of Amsterdam its name. The surrounding canals were added later, in the 17th century, and form the famous canal district. This beautiful city was Ariane’s home for 3 years and deserves a design dedicated to it!
