Noro Iro





From the book 'Knits to Fit and Flatter' I present 'Great Lengths Coat'. I used the yarn Noro Iro, which is a chunky weight wool/silk mix.


I am not sure about the' flattering ' aspect to this knit, because the wool is bulky, the sleeves ribbed AND self striping pattern...all combined together, make me feel tubby, especially the arms, BUT it is very warm and the perfect thing for the next couple of months.
and I am very pleased to have finished it.
