I used Noro Kureyon to make a throw for a birthday gift for my sister. The colors are vibrant and help create a patchwork effect. I love the way knitting with Noro surprises you...you can't really know what it will look like until it's finished and no two items will ever look the same.

          Comments about Noro Kureyon:

          I bought two skeins of Kureyon yarn because of the beautiful dye colors. I made two lace style cowl for our New Year fundraiser. I tried many different patterns before settling on a simple alternating pattern of Purl two together, yarn over followed by a knit row. I used size 9 knitting needles and made each cowl 7 inches by about 27, knitting to the end of each skein in order to maximize the circumference of each cowl and use every bit of yarn. The simple lace pattern allowed the lovely color variations in the yarn to show. The lace pattern, also, make the cowl light enough for a late winter early spring wearing.

          This is a sturdy yarn. I knit up one skein, unraveled it, and then reknit it about five times before I found a suitable pattern. I must say the yarn held up beautifully. I would definitely use this yarn again. Especially for gifts and fundraising projects such as this. The blended colors are so attractive. Once I finally found a pattern, the cowls worked up quickly and easily.

              Great service! Great price! And all the colors you need! I am currently working on a blanket using the Kureyon series from Noro called 64 crayons, a fun mindless project but requires lots of Kureyon. Since only one yarn store near me carries few colors of this type of yarn, I needed another source but a good one! I also needed a source that I knew I could get this yarn quick and was knowledgable, Web's is an amazing source!

                I am using this yarn to knit the Heart Blanket from Noro Knitting Magazine, Issue 5, Fall/Winter 2014. I felt very fortunate to be able to get the same colorways as specified in the original pattern.

                    This is a great yarn with great colors. However, the only reason I can not give it 5 stars is because it not unusual to find a knot in the middle of the skein - often connecting 2 entirely different colors.

                    I have made gorgeous crochet hats from this yarn, however, it's hard to predict how each color will look before you see it. High marks to www.yarn.com for helping me either in picking the color I know or handling so promptly any return and refund.
