From How cool would it be to commission serious knitwear creators to design color bursts of accessories? The answer comes from the manufacturer of Noro, a high-end Japanese yarn brand known for its ever-fascinating combinations of hues. In this book, the follow-up to the first Knit Noro (2011) book, 30 accessories—or smalls, consuming only a few skeins of expensive yarn—dominate. Patterns and techniques are contemporary, whether brioche or entrelac, felted or cabled, as are the actual wearables. A shrug becomes kimono-like, and a dog’s sweater is made flexible with the addition of a drawstring. Color photographs mesmerize; instructions—and charts, wherever necessary—are crystal clear to experienced knitters. Unfortunately, this isn’t geared to beginners (unless a pro is nearby); these 30 projects demand the click-clack of well-honed needles. --Barbara Jacobs
